|Equals||Indicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|

The IDictionaryEnumerator.Entry method returns an instance of this type.
The foreach statement of the C# language (for each in Visual C++, For Each in Visual Basic) requires the type of each element in the collection. Since each element of the IDictionary is a key/value pair, the element type is not the type of the key or the type of the value. Instead, the element type is . For example:
The foreach statement is a wrapper around the enumerator, which only allows reading from, not writing to, the collection.
