VariantToVariantHashMapMBS class

Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
class Data Types MBS DataTypes Plugin 8.2 Yes Yes Yes Yes No
Function: An alternative dictionary class for an hash map with variants and keys and values.
Example:
dim s as new VariantToVariantHashMapMBS

s.Value("Test")="Hello"
s.Value("test")="World"

MsgBox str(s.Count) // shows 2

s.Value(ConvertEncoding("test",encodings.UTF16))="Just a"
s.Value(ConvertEncoding("Test",encodings.UTF16))="test"

MsgBox str(s.Count) // shows 4
Notes:
Think of this class like the reimplementation for dictionary class with being case sensitive.

When using variants for keys, you may get better results if all keys used have the same data type to improve comparison.
All text comparison is done either case sensitive or insensitive. Defined in constructor.
You can choose whether you want to keep the map ordered using the OrderedMap class or whether you prefer a higher speed with the HashMap class.
