C# | Add element to HashSet

A HashSet is an unordered collection of the unique elements. It comes under System.Collections.Generic namespace. It is used in a situation where we want to prevent duplicates from being inserted in the collection. As far as performance is concerned, it is better in comparison to the list. Elements can be added to HashSet using HashSet.Add(T) Method.

Syntax:

mySet.Add(T item);

Here mySet is the name of the HashSet.

Parameter:

item: The element to add to the set.

Return Type: This method returns true if the element is added to the HashSet object. If the element is already present then it returns false.

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way:

class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        // Creating a HashSet of odd numbers
        HashSet<int> odd = new HashSet<int>();
  
        // Inserting elements in HashSet
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
            odd.Add(2 * i + 1);
        }
  
        // Displaying the elements in the HashSet
        foreach(int i in odd)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(i);
        }
    }
