Examples

The following code example shows how to replace the value of an existing element in a SortedList object.

#using <system.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Collections;
void PrintIndexAndKeysAndValues( SortedList^ myList )
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\t-INDEX-\t-KEY-\t-VALUE-" );
   for ( int i = 0; i < myList->Count; i++ )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "\t[{0}]:\t{1}\t{2}", i, myList->GetKey( i ), myList->GetByIndex( i ) );

   }
   Console::WriteLine();
}

int main()
{
   
   // Creates and initializes a new SortedList.
   SortedList^ mySL = gcnew SortedList;
   mySL->Add( 2, "two" );
   mySL->Add( 3, "three" );
   mySL->Add( 1, "one" );
   mySL->Add( 0, "zero" );
   mySL->Add( 4, "four" );
   
   // Displays the values of the SortedList.
   Console::WriteLine( "The SortedList contains the following values:" );
   PrintIndexAndKeysAndValues( mySL );
   
   // Replaces the values at index 3 and index 4.
   mySL->SetByIndex( 3, "III" );
   mySL->SetByIndex( 4, "IV" );
   
   // Displays the updated values of the SortedList.
   Console::WriteLine( "After replacing the value at index 3 and index 4," );
   PrintIndexAndKeysAndValues( mySL );
}

Remarks

The index sequence is based on the sort sequence. When an element is added, it is inserted into SortedList in the correct sort order, and the indexing adjusts accordingly. When an element is removed, the indexing also adjusts accordingly. Therefore, the index of a specific key/value pair might change as elements are added or removed from the SortedList object.

This method is an O(1) operation.
