Using System...Dictionary from Intent

In this morning's "ETO Potlatch", Farren asked about using a System.Dictionary.  Here is a simple example.  Note that you cannot use "New", but you have to use CreateInstance.


Uncached Rule TestDictionary As List
   Dim map As Any = System.Activator.CreateInstance("mscorlib", "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2[System.Int32,System.String]").UnWrap()
   map.Add(3, "Hello")
   map.Add(42, "Goodbye")
   Dim intentList As List
   Dim kv As Any
   For Each kv In map
     intentList = intentList + {kv.Key, kv.Value }
   Dim retList As List
   If (map.ContainsKey(3)) Then
     retList = retList + { map.get_Item(3) }
   End If
   Return retList
End Rule

 Thanks Mike!
