Imports Microsoft.SharePoint

Module ConsoleApp
   Sub Main()
      Using site As SPSite = New SPSite("http://localhost")
         Using web As SPWeb = site.OpenWeb()

            Dim list As SPList = web.GetList("/shared documents/")
            If list.ItemCount > 0 Then
               Dim item As SPListItem = list.Items(0)
               Dim ht As Hashtable = item.Properties
               Dim de As DictionaryEntry
               For Each de In ht
                  Console.WriteLine("Key: {0}  Value: {1}", de.Key, de.Value)
               Next
            End If

         End Using
      End Using

      Console.ReadLine()
   End Sub
End Module
