        myDict.Add("C", "Cat");
        myDict.Add("D", "Dog");

        // Creating a String arr named myArr
        String[] myArr = new String[myDict.Count];
  
        // copying the Keys in HybridDictionary
        // to a one-dimensional Array instance
        // at the specified index.
        myDict.Keys.CopyTo(myArr, 0);
  
        // To get an ICollection containing
        // the keys in the HybridDictionary
        for (int i = 0; i < myDict.Count; i++)
            Console.WriteLine(myArr[i]);

Note:

  • The order of the values in the ICollection is unspecified, but it is the same order as the associated values in the ICollection returned by the Values method.
  • The returned ICollection is not a static copy. Instead, the ICollection refers back to the keys in the original HybridDictionary. Therefore, changes to the HybridDictionary continue to be reflected in the ICollection.
  • Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation.
