    keyValuePair As KeyValuePair(Of TKey, TValue) _
) As Boolean Implements ICollection(Of KeyValuePair(Of TKey, TValue)).Remove
Dim instance As SortedList(Of TKey, TValue)
Dim keyValuePair As KeyValuePair(Of TKey, TValue)
Dim returnValue As Boolean

returnValue = CType(instance, ICollection(Of KeyValuePair(Of TKey, TValue))).Remove(keyValuePair)

Return Value

true if keyValuePair was successfully removed from the ICollection; otherwise, false. This method also returns false if keyValuePair was not found in the original ICollection.


This method determines equality using the default comparer Comparer.Default for System.Collections.Generic.KeyValuePair.

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.
