If Not myOrderedDictionary.IsReadOnly Then 

    ' 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")) Then
