Dictionary<Tkey, TValue>

Represents a collection of keys and values.

Added 04/11/2020 Working with dictionaries for adding a filter value to the backoffice of Umbraco on CAS.

TKey - The type of the keys in the dictionary.

TValue - The type of the values in the dictionary.

// Create a new dictionary of strings, with string keys.
//
Dictionary<string, string> openWith =
new Dictionary<string, string>();
// Add some elements to the dictionary. There are no
// duplicate keys, but some of the values are duplicates.
openWith.Add("txt", "notepad.exe");
openWith.Add("bmp", "paint.exe");
openWith.Add("dib", "paint.exe");
openWith.Add("rtf", "wordpad.exe");

The Dictionary<TKey,TValue> generic class provides a mapping from a set of keys to a set of values. Each addition to the dictionary consists of a value and its associated key. Retrieving a value by using its key is very fast, close to O(1), because the Dictionary<TKey,TValue> class is implemented as a hash table.

Dictionary<string, string> openWith = new Dictionary<string, string>();

openWith.Add("bmp", "paint.exe");
openWith.Add("dib", "paint.exe");
openWith.Add("rtf", "wordpad.exe");
foreach (KeyValuePair<string, string> kvp in openWith)
{
Console.WriteLine("Key = {0}, Value = {1}", kvp.Key, kvp.Value);
}
