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

Gets a collection of values in the StringDictionary.

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

public virtual ICollection Values { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.ICollection

An ICollection that provides the values in the StringDictionary.

The order of the values in the ICollection is unspecified, but it is the same order as the associated keys in the ICollection returned by the Keys method.

The returned ICollection is not a static copy; instead, the ICollection refers back to the values in the original StringDictionary. Therefore, changes to the StringDictionary continue to be reflected in the ICollection.

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

The following code example enumerates the elements of a StringDictionary.

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Specialized;

public class SamplesStringDictionary
    public static void Main()
        // Creates and initializes a new StringDictionary.
        StringDictionary myCol = new StringDictionary();
        myCol.Add( "red", "rojo" );
        myCol.Add( "green", "verde" );
        myCol.Add( "blue", "azul" );

        foreach (string val in myCol.Values)
// This code produces the following output.
// verde
// rojo
// azul
