Examples

The following code example demonstrates the modification of an OrderedDictionary collection. In this example, the IsReadOnly property is used to determine whether the OrderedDictionary can be modified. This code is part of a larger code example that can be viewed at OrderedDictionary.

// Modifying the OrderedDictionary
if (!myOrderedDictionary->IsReadOnly)
{
    // Insert a new key to the beginning of the OrderedDictionary
    myOrderedDictionary->Insert(0, "insertedKey1", "insertedValue1");

    // Modify the value of the entry with the key "testKey2"
    myOrderedDictionary["testKey2"] = "modifiedValue";

    // Remove the last entry from the OrderedDictionary: "testKey3"
    myOrderedDictionary->RemoveAt(myOrderedDictionary->Count - 1);

    // Remove the "keyToDelete" entry, if it exists
    if (myOrderedDictionary->Contains("keyToDelete"))
    {
        myOrderedDictionary->Remove("keyToDelete");
    }
}
// Modifying the OrderedDictionary
if (!myOrderedDictionary.IsReadOnly)
{
    // Insert a new key to the beginning of the OrderedDictionary
    myOrderedDictionary.Insert(0, "insertedKey1", "insertedValue1");

    // Modify the value of the entry with the key "testKey2"
    myOrderedDictionary["testKey2"] = "modifiedValue";

    // Remove the last entry from the OrderedDictionary: "testKey3"
    myOrderedDictionary.RemoveAt(myOrderedDictionary.Count - 1);

    // Remove the "keyToDelete" entry, if it exists
    if (myOrderedDictionary.Contains("keyToDelete"))
    {
        myOrderedDictionary.Remove("keyToDelete");
    }
}
' Modifying the OrderedDictionary
If Not myOrderedDictionary.IsReadOnly Then

    ' Insert a new key to the beginning of the OrderedDictionary
    myOrderedDictionary.Insert(0, "insertedKey1", "insertedValue1")

    ' Modify the value of the entry with the key "testKey2"
    myOrderedDictionary("testKey2") = "modifiedValue"

    ' Remove the last entry from the OrderedDictionary: "testKey3"
    myOrderedDictionary.RemoveAt(myOrderedDictionary.Count - 1)

    ' Remove the "keyToDelete" entry, if it exists
    If (myOrderedDictionary.Contains("keyToDelete")) Then
        myOrderedDictionary.Remove("keyToDelete")
    End If
End If

Remarks

A collection that is read-only does not allow the addition, removal, or modification of elements after the collection is created.

A collection that is read-only is simply a collection with a wrapper that prevents modification of the collection; therefore, if changes are made to the underlying collection, the read-only collection reflects those changes.
