        // Create a new dictionary of
        // strings, with string keys.
        SortedDictionary<string, string> myDict = 
          new SortedDictionary<string, string>();
  
        // Adding key/value pairs in myDict
        myDict.Add("Australia", "Canberra");
        myDict.Add("Belgium", "Brussels");
        myDict.Add("Netherlands", "Amsterdam");
        myDict.Add("China", "Beijing");
        myDict.Add("Russia", "Moscow");
        myDict.Add("India", "New Delhi");
  
        // To get count of key/value pairs in myDict
        Console.WriteLine("Total key/value pairs "
             + "in myDict are : " + myDict.Count);
  
        // Remove all pairs from the Dictionary
        myDict.Clear();
  
        Console.WriteLine("After clear operation");
  
        // To get count of key/value pairs in myDict
        Console.WriteLine("Total key/value pairs in"
                + " myDict  are : " + myDict.Count);
    }
}
