How To Add/Loop through Dictionary – In UiPath

During the programming, we might want to save some values as key and value pairs so that we use them later.

Dictionary is a generic collection which is generally used to store key/value pairs.

Declaring A Dictionary
My_Dictionary = new Dictionary(TKey,TValue)

Note:
TKey can be of Int,String….
TValue can be of Int,String…

Example

Implementation using UiPath :

Let’s develop a workflow where we will add two Key and Value pairs to the Dictionary and will display all the items available in the dictionary.

Step 1:
Drag “Assign” activity into the designer panel and define a declared dictionary with a “key” of string type and “value” of object type.

our_Dictionary = new Dictionary(Of String,Object)

Step 2:
Drag “Assign” activities into the designer panel and add the following things to the above dictionary.

Name: Sharath
our_Dictionary(“Name”) = “Sharath”

UiPath Add Retrieve items from dictionary 2

Location: India
our_Dictionary(“Location”) = “India”

UiPath Add Retrieve items from dictionary 3

Step 3:
Drag “For Each” activity into the designer panel and pass the above the dictionary to it.

Don’t forget to change the “TypeArgument” to
System.Collections.Generic.KeyValuePair<System.String, System.Object> in the properties window.

Use the “Message box” activity to display the key and value as we iterate the dictionary.
