Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IComparer<TKey>

The IComparer<T> used to order the elements of the SortedDictionary<TKey, TValue>

SortedDictionary<TKey, TValue> requires a comparer implementation to perform key comparisons. You can specify an implementation of the IComparer<T> generic interface by using a constructor that accepts a comparer parameter. If you do not, the default generic equality comparer, Comparer<T>.Default, is used. If type TKey implements the System.IComparable<T> generic interface, the default comparer uses that implementation.

Getting the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
