C# | Getting the key at the specified index of a SortedList object

SortedList.GetKey(Int32) Method is used to get the key at the specified index of a SortedList object.

Syntax:

public virtual object GetKey (int index);

Here, index is the zero-based index of the key to get.

Return Value: This method returns the key at the specified index of the SortedList object.

Exception: This method throws ArgumentOutOfRangeException if the index is outside the range of valid indexes for the SortedList object.



Below programs illustrate the use of above-discussed method:

        SortedList mylist = new SortedList();
  
        // Adding elements to SortedList
        mylist.Add("key1", "C++");
        mylist.Add("key2", "Java");
        mylist.Add("key3", "DSA");
        mylist.Add("key4", "Python");
        mylist.Add("key5", "C#");
  
        // storing the value of
        // index that needed by
        // used into a variable
        int i = 2;
  
        // getting the key at index 2
        Console.WriteLine("Key at index {0} is {1}",
                          i, mylist.GetKey(i));
    }
}
