Table of Contents

C# Collections: A Detailed Presentation dives deep into the operations of the .NET Collections framework. Material covered includes:

  • Explanation of collection framework inheritance hierarchy
  • Explanation of the differences between collection types and the performance characteristics of their underlying data structures
  • Clearly explained code examples showing implementation of stacks, ring buffers, queues, doubly-linked circular list, and red-black trees
  • How to properly implement important collection-related interfaces including IEnumerable, IEnumerable<T>, IComparable, IComparable<T>, IDictionary<KeyValuePair<TKey, TValue>>, etc.
  • The use of generics to create custom generic classes.
  • Explanation and demonstration of generic constraints including the default constructor constraint, reference type constraint, value type constraint, inheritance constraint, and naked constraint
  • Detailed explanations of single- and multidimensional arrays
  • How to use the Array class to sort and manipulate arrays
  • How to implement natural ordering in user-defined data types by implementing the IComparable and IComparable<T> interfaces
  • How to implement custom ordering for user-defined data types via custom comparers
  • How to implement custom XML serialization for complex user-defined collections
  • How to allow a custom collection to be iterated with a foreach statement
  • How to implement named iterators for custom ordering
  • How to implement the Weak Event Listener pattern
  • How to implement one-way data bindings between collections and GUI components
  • How to implement two-way data bindings between collections and GUI components
  • How to implement the ICollectionChanged and IPropertyChanged interfaces
  • How to respond to CollectionChanged and PropertyChanged events
  • Detailed treatment of threading and how to create threadsafe collections
  • How to use the lock keyword to coordinate multithread access to code segments
  • How to persist collections to disk or send collections over the network
  • ...and much, much more
