SortedSet<T>.GetViewBetween Method (T, T)

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Returns a view of a subset in a SortedSet<T>.

Namespace:   System.Collections.Generic
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public virtual SortedSet<T> GetViewBetween(
	T lowerValue,
	T upperValue


Type: T

The lowest desired value in the view.

Type: T

The highest desired value in the view.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.SortedSet<T>

A subset view that contains only the values in the specified range.

Exception Condition

lowerValue is more than upperValue according to the comparer.


A tried operation on the view was outside the range specified by lowerValue and upperValue.

This method returns a view of the range of elements that fall between lowerValue and upperValue, as defined by the comparer. This method does not copy elements from the SortedSet<T>, but provides a window into the underlying SortedSet<T> itself. You can make changes in both the view and in the underlying SortedSet<T>.

The following example uses the GetViewBetween method to list only the AVI files from a sorted set of media file names. The comparer evaluates file names according to their extensions. The lowerValue is "AVI" and the upperValue is only one value higher, "AVJ", to get the view of all AVI files. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SortedSet<T> class.

// List all the avi files.
SortedSet<string> aviFiles = mediaFiles1.GetViewBetween("avi", "avj");

Console.WriteLine("AVI files:");
foreach (string avi in aviFiles)
    Console.WriteLine("\t{0}", avi);
