C# | Union of two HashSet

  • Last Updated : 01 Feb, 2019
Geek Week

A HashSet is an unordered collection of the unique elements. It comes under the System.Collections.Generic namespace. It is used in a situation where we want to prevent duplicates from being inserted in the collection. As far as performance is concerned, it is better in comparison to the list. For the Union of two HashSet, HashSet.UnionWith(IEnumerable) Method is used.

Syntax:

firstSet.UnionWith(secondSet)

Exception: If the Set is null then this method give ArgumentNullException.

Below given are some examples to understand the implementation in a better way:

Example 1:






// C# code to find Union of two HashSet
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void Main()
    {
  
        // Creating a HashSet of integers
        HashSet<int> mySet1 = new HashSet<int>();
  
        // Creating a HashSet of integers
        HashSet<int> mySet2 = new HashSet<int>();
  
        // Inserting even numbers less than
        // equal to 10 in HashSet mySet1
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
            mySet1.Add(i * 2);
        }
  
        // Inserting odd numbers less than
        // equal to 10 in HashSet mySet2
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++) {
            mySet1.Add(i * 2 + 1);
        }
  
        // Creating a new HashSet that contains
        // the union of both the HashSet mySet1 & mySet2
        HashSet<int> ans = new HashSet<int>(mySet1);
  
        ans.UnionWith(mySet2);
  
        // Printing the union of both the HashSet
        foreach(int i in ans)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(i);
        }
    }
}
Output:
0
2
4
6
8
1
3
5
7
9

Example 2:




// C# code to find Union of two HashSet
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
   
class GFG {
   
    // Driver code
    public static void Main()
    {
   
        // Creating a HashSet of strings
        HashSet<string> mySet1 = new HashSet<string>();
   
        // Creating a HashSet of strings
        HashSet<string> mySet2 = new HashSet<string>();
   
        // Inserting elements in mySet1
        mySet1.Add("Hello");
        mySet1.Add("GeeksforGeeks");
        mySet1.Add("GeeksforGeeks");
   
        // Inserting elements in mySet2
        mySet2.Add("You");
        mySet2.Add("are");
        mySet2.Add("the");
        mySet2.Add("best");
   
        // Creating a new HashSet that contains
        // the union of both the HashSet mySet1 & mySet2
        HashSet<string> ans = new HashSet<string>(mySet1);
   
        ans.UnionWith(mySet2);
   
        // Printing the union of both the HashSet
        foreach(string i in ans)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(i);
        }
    }
}
Output:
Hello
GeeksforGeeks
You
are
the
best
