        // Creating a orderedDictionary named myDict
        OrderedDictionary myDict = new OrderedDictionary();
  
        // Adding key and value in myDict
        myDict.Add("key1", "value1");
        myDict.Add("key2", "value2");
        myDict.Add("key3", "value3");
        myDict.Add("key4", "value4");
        myDict.Add("key5", "value5");
  
        // To Get a read-only copy of
        // the OrderedDictionary
        OrderedDictionary myDict_1 = myDict.AsReadOnly();
  
        // Checking if myDict_1 is read-only
        Console.WriteLine(myDict_1.IsReadOnly);
    }
}

        // Checking if myDict_1 is read-only
        Console.WriteLine(myDict_1.IsReadOnly);
    }
}

Output:

True

Note: The AsReadOnly method creates a read-only wrapper around the current OrderedDictionary collection. Changes made to the OrderedDictionary collection are reflected in the read-only copy.
