ConcurrentDictionary<TKey,TValue>.TryRemove(TKey, TValue) ConcurrentDictionary<TKey,TValue>.TryRemove(TKey, TValue) ConcurrentDictionary<TKey,TValue>.TryRemove(TKey, TValue) ConcurrentDictionary<TKey,TValue>.TryRemove(TKey, TValue) Method

Definition

Attempts to remove and return the value that has the specified key from the ConcurrentDictionary<TKey,TValue>.

public:
 bool TryRemove(TKey key, [Runtime::InteropServices::Out] TValue % value);
public bool TryRemove (TKey key, out TValue value);
member this.TryRemove : 'Key *  -> bool
Public Function TryRemove (key As TKey, ByRef value As TValue) As Boolean
Parameters
key
TKey TKey TKey TKey

The key of the element to remove and return.

value
TValue TValue TValue TValue

When this method returns, contains the object removed from the ConcurrentDictionary<TKey,TValue>, or the default value of the TValue type if key does not exist.

Returns

true if the object was removed successfully; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example shows how to call the ConcurrentDictionary<TKey,TValue>.TryRemove method:

class CD_TryXYZ
{
        // Demonstrates:
        //      ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue>.TryAdd()
        //      ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue>.TryUpdate()
        //      ConcurrentDictionary<TKey, TValue>.TryRemove()
        static void Main()
        {
            int numFailures = 0; // for bookkeeping

            // Construct an empty dictionary
            ConcurrentDictionary<int, String> cd = new ConcurrentDictionary<int, string>();

            // This should work
            if (!cd.TryAdd(1, "one"))
            {
                Console.WriteLine("CD.TryAdd() failed when it should have succeeded");
                numFailures++;
            }

            // This shouldn't work -- key 1 is already in use
            if (cd.TryAdd(1, "uno"))
            {
                Console.WriteLine("CD.TryAdd() succeeded when it should have failed");
                numFailures++;
            }

            // Now change the value for key 1 from "one" to "uno" -- should work
            if (!cd.TryUpdate(1, "uno", "one"))

                numFailures++;
            }

            // Try to change the value for key 1 from "eine" to "one" 
            //    -- this shouldn't work, because the current value isn't "eine"
            if (cd.TryUpdate(1, "one", "eine"))
            {
                Console.WriteLine("CD.TryUpdate() succeeded when it should have failed");
                numFailures++;
            }

            // Remove key/value for key 1.  Should work.
            string value1;
            if (!cd.TryRemove(1, out value1))
            {
                Console.WriteLine("CD.TryRemove() failed when it should have succeeded");
                numFailures++;
            }

            // Remove key/value for key 1.  Shouldn't work, because I already removed it
            string value2;
            if (cd.TryRemove(1, out value2))
            {
                Console.WriteLine("CD.TryRemove() succeeded when it should have failed");
                numFailures++;
            }

            // If nothing went wrong, say so
            if (numFailures == 0) Console.WriteLine("  OK!");
        }
