System_CAPS_noteNote

ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> implements the IReadOnlyCollection<T> and IReadOnlyDictionary<TKey, TValue> interfaces starting with the .NET Framework 4.6; in previous versions of the .NET Framework, the ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> class did not implement these interfaces.

Like the System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary<TKey, TValue> class, ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> implements the IDictionary<TKey, TValue> interface. In addition, ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> provides several methods for adding or updating key/value pairs in the dictionary, as described in the following table.

To do this

Use this method

Usage notes

Add a new key to the dictionary, if it doesn’t already exist in the dictionary

TryAdd

This method adds the specified key/value pair, if the key doesn’t currently exist in the dictionary. The method returns true or false depending on whether the new pair was added.

Update the value for an existing key in the dictionary, if that key has a specific value

TryUpdate

This method checks whether the key has a specified value, and if it does, updates the key with a new value. It's similar to the CompareExchange method, except that it's used for dictionary elements.

Store a key/value pair in the dictionary unconditionally, and overwrite the value of a key that already exists

The indexer’s setter: dictionary[key] = newValue

Add a key/value pair to the dictionary, or if the key already exists, update the value for the key based on the key’s existing value

AddOrUpdate(TKey, Func<TKey, TValue>, Func<TKey, TValue, TValue>)

—or—

AddOrUpdate(TKey, TValue, Func<TKey, TValue, TValue>)

AddOrUpdate(TKey, Func<TKey, TValue>, Func<TKey, TValue, TValue>) accepts the key and two delegates. It uses the first delegate if the key doesn’t exist in the dictionary; it accepts the key and returns the value that should be added for the key. It uses the second delegate if the key does exist; it accepts the key and its current value, and it returns the new value that should be set for the key.

AddOrUpdate(TKey, TValue, Func<TKey, TValue, TValue>) accepts the key, a value to add, and the update delegate. This is the same as the previous overload, except that it doesn't use a delegate to add a key.

Get the value for a key in the dictionary, adding the value to the dictionary and returning it if the key doesn’t exist

GetOrAdd(TKey, TValue)

—or—

GetOrAdd(TKey, Func<TKey, TValue>)

These overloads provide lazy initialization for a key/value pair in the dictionary, adding the value only if it’s not there.

GetOrAdd(TKey, TValue) takes the value to be added if the key doesn’t exist.

GetOrAdd(TKey, Func<TKey, TValue>) takes a delegate that will generate the value if the key doesn’t exist.

All these operations are atomic and are thread-safe with regards to all other operations on the ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> class. The only exceptions are the methods that accept a delegate, that is, AddOrUpdate and GetOrAdd. For modifications and write operations to the dictionary, ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> uses fine-grained locking to ensure thread safety. (Read operations on the dictionary are performed in a lock-free manner.) However, delegates for these methods are called outside the locks to avoid the problems that can arise from executing unknown code under a lock. Therefore, the code executed by these delegates is not subject to the atomicity of the operation.

The following example shows how to construct a ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> object.


class CD_Ctor
{
        // Demonstrates:
        //      ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> ctor(concurrencyLevel, initialCapacity)
        //      ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue>[TKey]
        static void Main()
        {
            // We know how many items we want to insert into the ConcurrentDictionary.
            // So set the initial capacity to some prime number above that, to ensure that
            // the ConcurrentDictionary does not need to be resized while initializing it.
            int NUMITEMS = 64;
            int initialCapacity = 101;

            // The higher the concurrencyLevel, the higher the theoretical number of operations
            // that could be performed concurrently on the ConcurrentDictionary.  However, global
            // operations like resizing the dictionary take longer as the concurrencyLevel rises. 
            // For the purposes of this example, we'll compromise at numCores * 2.
            int numProcs = Environment.ProcessorCount;
            int concurrencyLevel = numProcs * 2;

            // Construct the dictionary with the desired concurrencyLevel and initialCapacity
            ConcurrentDictionary<int, int> cd = new ConcurrentDictionary<int, int>(concurrencyLevel, initialCapacity);

            // Initialize the dictionary
            for (int i = 0; i < NUMITEMS; i++) cd[i] = i * i;

            Console.WriteLine("The square of 23 is {0} (should be {1})", cd[23], 23 * 23);
        }
}

All public and protected members of ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> are thread-safe and may be used concurrently from multiple threads. However, members accessed through one of the interfaces the ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue> implements, including extension methods, are not guaranteed to be thread safe and may need to be synchronized by the caller.
