Examples

The following code example shows how to remove a key/value pair from the sorted list using the Remove method.

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

// Use the Remove method to remove a key/value pair.
Console::WriteLine("\nRemove(\"doc\")");
openWith->Remove("doc");

if (!openWith->ContainsKey("doc"))
{
    Console::WriteLine("Key \"doc\" is not found.");
}
// Use the Remove method to remove a key/value pair.
Console.WriteLine("\nRemove(\"doc\")");
openWith.Remove("doc");

if (!openWith.ContainsKey("doc"))
{
    Console.WriteLine("Key \"doc\" is not found.");
}
' Use the Remove method to remove a key/value pair.
Console.WriteLine(vbLf + "Remove(""doc"")")
openWith.Remove("doc")

If Not openWith.ContainsKey("doc") Then
    Console.WriteLine("Key ""doc"" is not found.")
End If

Remarks

This method performs a binary search; however, the elements are moved up to fill in the open spot, so this method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
