        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");
  
        // Getting an ICollection containing
        // the keys in OrderedDictionary
        ICollection keyCollection = myDict.Keys;
  
        // Creating a String array
        String[] myKeys = new String[myDict.Count];
  
        // Copying the OrderedDictionary elements to
        // a one-dimensional Array object at the
        // specified index.
        keyCollection.CopyTo(myKeys, 0);
  
        for (int i = 0; i < myDict.Count; i++) {
            Console.WriteLine(myKeys[i]);
        }
    }
