// Modifying the OrderedDictionary
if (!myOrderedDictionary.IsReadOnly)
    // Insert a new key to the beginning of the OrderedDictionary
    myOrderedDictionary.Insert(0, "insertedKey1", "insertedValue1");

    // Modify the value of the entry with the key "testKey2"
    myOrderedDictionary["testKey2"] = "modifiedValue";

    // Remove the last entry from the OrderedDictionary: "testKey3"
    myOrderedDictionary.RemoveAt(myOrderedDictionary.Count - 1);

    // Remove the "keyToDelete" entry, if it exists
    if (myOrderedDictionary.Contains("keyToDelete"))
