ToDictionary method in C#

The ToDictionary method is an extension method in C# and converts a collection into Dictionary.

Firstly, create a string array −

string[] str = new string[] {"Car", "Bus", "Bicycle"};

Now, use the Dictionary method to convert a collection to Dictionary −

str.ToDictionary(item => item, item => true);

Here is the complete code −
