They are two different Structures from two different namespaces (System.Collection and Autodesk.AutoCAD.DatabaseServices).

DictionaryEntry keys and values are both object type, a DBDictionaryEntry key have to be a string and its value an ObjectId.


But there're explicit cast operators in the DBDictionaryEntry struct definition:

        public static explicit operator DictionaryEntry(DBDictionaryEntry entry);
        public static explicit operator DBDictionaryEntry(DictionaryEntry entry);
