Examples

The following code example uses BaseAdd to create a new NameObjectCollectionBase with elements from an IDictionary.

#using <system.dll>

using namespace System::Collections;
using namespace System::Collections::Specialized;
public ref class MyCollection: public NameObjectCollectionBase
{

   property DictionaryEntry Item [ int ]
   {
      // Gets a key-and-value pair (DictionaryEntry) using an index.
      DictionaryEntry get( int index )
      {
         _de.Key = this->BaseGetKey( index );
         _de.Value = this->BaseGet( index );
         return (_de);
      }
   }

   // Adds elements from an IDictionary* into the new collection.
   MyCollection( IDictionary^ d )
   {
      IEnumerator^ myEnum = d->GetEnumerator();
      while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
      {
         DictionaryEntry^ de = safe_cast<DictionaryEntry^>(myEnum->Current);
         this->BaseAdd( safe_cast<String^>(de->Key), de->Value );
      }
   }
};

int main()
{
   // Creates and initializes a new MyCollection instance.
   IDictionary^ d = gcnew ListDictionary;
   d->Add( "red", "apple" );
   d->Add( "yellow", "banana" );
   d->Add( "green", "pear" );
   MyCollection^ myCol = gcnew MyCollection( d );

   // Displays the keys and values of the MyCollection instance.
   for ( int i = 0; i < myCol->Count; i++ )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "[{0}] : {1}, {2}", i, myCol->Item[ i ].Key, myCol->Item[ i ].Value );
   }

Remarks

If Count already equals the capacity, the capacity of the NameObjectCollectionBase is increased by automatically reallocating the internal array, and the existing elements are copied to the new array before the new element is added.

If Count is less than the capacity, this method is an O(1) operation. If the capacity needs to be increased to accommodate the new element, this method becomes an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
