Output:

Number of key/value pairs in myDict are : 5
The key/value pairs in myDict are : 
I --> first
II --> second
III --> third
IV --> fourth
V --> fifth
Number of key/value pairs in myDict are : 0
The key/value pairs in myDict are :

Note:

  • Count is set to zero, and references to other objects from elements of the collection are also released.
  • If the collection is already stored in a Hashtable, the collection remains in the Hashtable.
  • This method is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
