SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.Values SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.Values SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.Values SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.Values Property

Definition

Gets a collection containing the values in the SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.

public:
 property System::Collections::Generic::SortedDictionary<TKey, TValue>::ValueCollection ^ Values { System::Collections::Generic::SortedDictionary<TKey, TValue>::ValueCollection ^ get(); };
public System.Collections.Generic.SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.ValueCollection Values { get; }
member this.Values : System.Collections.Generic.SortedDictionary<'Key, 'Value>.ValueCollection
Public ReadOnly Property Values As SortedDictionary(Of TKey, TValue).ValueCollection

Property Value

Examples

This code example shows how to enumerate the values in the dictionary using the Values property, and how to enumerate the keys and values in the dictionary.

This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue> class.

// To get the values alone, use the Values property.
SortedDictionary<string, string>.ValueCollection valueColl = 
    openWith.Values;

// The elements of the ValueCollection are strongly typed
// with the type that was specified for dictionary values.
Console.WriteLine();
foreach( string s in valueColl )
{
    Console.WriteLine("Value = {0}", s);
}
' To get the values alone, use the Values property.
Dim valueColl _
    As SortedDictionary(Of String, String).ValueCollection = _
    openWith.Values

' The elements of the ValueCollection are strongly typed
' with the type that was specified for dictionary values.
Console.WriteLine()
For Each s As String In valueColl 
    Console.WriteLine("Value = {0}", s)
Next s
// When you use foreach to enumerate dictionary elements,
// the elements are retrieved as KeyValuePair objects.
Console.WriteLine();
foreach( KeyValuePair<string, string> kvp in openWith )
{
    Console.WriteLine("Key = {0}, Value = {1}", 
        kvp.Key, kvp.Value);
}
' When you use foreach to enumerate dictionary elements,
' the elements are retrieved as KeyValuePair objects.
Console.WriteLine()
For Each kvp As KeyValuePair(Of String, String) In openWith
    Console.WriteLine("Key = {0}, Value = {1}", _
        kvp.Key, kvp.Value)
Next kvp

Remarks

The values in the SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.ValueCollection are sorted according to the Comparer property, and are in the same order as the associated keys in the SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.KeyCollection returned by the Keys property.

The returned SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.ValueCollection is not a static copy; instead, the SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.ValueCollection refers back to the values in the original SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>. Therefore, changes to the SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue> continue to be reflected in the SortedDictionary<TKey,TValue>.ValueCollection.

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