Gets a collection of values in the StringDictionary.

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

Public Overridable ReadOnly Property Values As ICollection

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.

Imports System
Imports System.Collections
Imports System.Collections.Specialized

Public Class SamplesStringDictionary
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Creates and initializes a new StringDictionary.
        Dim myCol As New StringDictionary()
        myCol.Add( "red", "rojo" )
        myCol.Add( "green", "verde" )
        myCol.Add( "blue", "azul" )

        For Each val As String In myCol.Values
        Next val
    End Sub
End Class

' This code produces the following output.
' verde
' rojo
' azul
