    The Dictionary object stores information in name/value pairs. The Asp dictionary object allows you to store information in data key, item pairs. The Dictionary object is like an associative array, but with its own built-in functionality. This dictionary object also looks after the basic tasks of storing and manipulating the data, and sizing for the required number of elements. However, the Dictionary object is a more desirable solution to manipulate related data. Also you should know that each item in the Dictionary object is associated with a unique key.

    Re: What are the Dictionary Object in ASP?

    Before using the dictionary object, there are somethings that should be kept in mind. These things are described as follows :
    1. You cannot use key for the another item in the same Dictionary object, since the key is a unique identifier for the corresponding item. If you create a duplicate, then the old value of that object will get overwritten with the new one that you re-placed recently.
    2. Since the dictionary cannot be multidimensional, a value in a Dictionary object can not be an array.

    The following are some Asp Dictionary Object Methods :
    • Add - This method adds a key and item pair to a Dictionary object.
    • Remove - This method is used for removing a key, item pair from a Dictionary object.
    • RemoveAll - This method is used for removing all key, item pairs from a Dictionary object.
    • Items - This method returns an array containing all the items in a Dictionary object.
    • Exists - This method returns True if a specified key exists in the Dictionary object; False if it does not.
    • Keys - This method returns an array containing all existing keys in a Dictionary object.

    According to me, you should also know the properties of Asp Dictionary Object. So I have mentioned the properties below :
    1. Count - This property returns the number of items in a collection or Dictionary object.
    2. Item - This property sets or returns an item for a specified key in a Dictionary object.
    3. Key - This property sets a key in a Dictionary object.
    4. CompareMode - This property sets and returns the comparison mode for comparing string keys in a Dictionary object.

    Hope that this will help you..!!

    For creating the dictionary object, you can use the following code :
    Code:
    <%
    Dim objDictionary
    Set objDictionary = CreateObject(Scripting.Dictionary)
    objDictionary.Add "pet", "Cat"
    objDictionary.Add "jeep", "Scorpio"
    
    dim strkey,strvalue
    strkey = "Flower"
    strvalue = "Rose"
    objDictionary.Add strkey,strvalue
    %>
    "When they give you ruled paper, write the other way..." J.R.J.
