collection in asp.net c#

collection in asp.net c#

Collection represents a set of classes or objects that you can access to different type for different purpose. 

The name space of collection classes are

1. System. Collections
2. System.Collections.Generic

http://code-sample.net/images/collectionclasses%20.png

The System.Collection class contain the many classes for different purpose which explains in below.

  1. ArrayList
  2. Dictionary 
  3. HashTable 
  4. Stack
  5. Queue
ArrayList

Array List is collection with different data type using the System.Collection namespace. It is dynamic array and provides the feature for dynamic access.

Example for Add() method

using System;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace CollectionClasses
{
  
               public class Program
               {
                               public static void ArrayListColl()
                               {
                                              ArrayList objArrayList = new ArrayList();
                                              objArrayList.Add("India");
                                              objArrayList.Add("Uttar Pradesh");
                                              objArrayList.Add("Kushinagar");

                                              foreach (string element in objArrayList)
                                              {
                                                             Console.WriteLine(element);
                                                             Console.ReadLine();

Dictionary
The Dictionary collection class is a generic class that contain the any data type. The Dictionary class contain two parameters (generic type) one is key and other is value. Before implementation, we must import the System.Collections.Generic namespace. The dictionary type provides fast searching with key to get its values. Dictionary is used when we have different elements. The Dictionary contains the some different feature.

Dictionary objDict=new Dictionary();

HashTable
HashTable is a collection classes which provide the support to key base searching and stored the key value pair type collection data. HashTable searching the element is very fast but slower then generic Dictionary type. In HashTable we can maintain the data uniqueness that means without having null values and duplicate value. In HashTable, both key and value is object and we can retrieve the items from the HashTable by providing the key.
Syntax :
Hashtable objHash=new Hashtable();
HashTable contain the methods which are give below in

Stack
Stack is a Last-In-First-Out collection that is called LIFO. Stack is a generic type collection. Stack worked on two basic components which are 1. Push 2. Pop Push is formally worked for insert an item on the top in stack. Pop is formally worked on the remove the last inserted record from the stack.
