C# | Check if SortedDictionary contains the specified key or not

SortedDictionary<TKey, TValue>.ContainsKey(TKey) Method is used to check whether the SortedDictionary contains an element with the specified key or not.

Syntax:

public bool ContainsKey (TKey key);

Here, the key is the Key which is to be located in the SortedDictionary.



Returns Value: This method will return true if the Dictionary contains an element with the specified key otherwise, it returns false.
