Assemblies:   mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
  System.Collections (in System.Collections.dll)

private abstract Contains : 
        keyValuePair:KeyValuePair<'TKey, 'TValue> -> bool  
private override Contains : 
        keyValuePair:KeyValuePair<'TKey, 'TValue> -> bool

This method determines equality using the default equality comparer EqualityComparer(T).Default for the System.Collections.Generic.KeyValuePair(TKey, TValue) structure.

This method approaches an O(1) operation.

The following example shows how to use the ICollection(KeyValuePair(TKey, TValue)).Add, ICollection(KeyValuePair(TKey, TValue)).Contains, ICollection(KeyValuePair(TKey, TValue)).CopyTo, and ICollection(KeyValuePair(TKey, TValue)).Remove methods of the System.Collections.Generic.ICollection(T) generic interface to manipulate a Dictionary(TKey, TValue) object.
