What is the Item property of SortedList class in C#?

A sorted list is a combination of an array and a hash table. It contains a list of items that can be accessed using a key or an index.

Gets and sets the value associated with a specific key in the SortedList.

You can also use the Item property to add new elements.

If a key does not exist, then you can include it like.

myCollection["myNonexistentKey"] = myValue

If the key already exist, then it will overwrite it with the new key and value.

The following is an example to learn how to work with Item property of SorteList class in C#.

            Console.WriteLine(k + ": " + s[k]);
