Get custom property value

I am using AutoCAD 2014 and VB.NET 2010.  I am trying to get the value of a custom property and cannot seem to do so.


The old command I used for AutoCAD 2010 was:

ThisDrawing.SummaryInfo.GetCustomByKey(strParameter, strValue)


But this does not work anymore. So I created this sub but it does not seem to work either.  Any clues to what I am doing wrong?



Sub subFindCustomParam(ByVal strUserParameter AsString)


   Dim infoDB AsDatabase =Application.DocumentManager.MdiActiveDocument.Database

   Dim infoBuilder AsDatabaseSummaryInfoBuilder = NewDatabaseSummaryInfoBuilder(infoDB.SummaryInfo)       

   Dim infodict AsDBDictionary = infoBuilder.CustomPropertyTable


   ForEach infoentry As DictionaryEntry In infodict


      If strUserParameter = infoentry.Key Then

                CurrentParameterValue = infoentry.Value


                   bolCustomPropertyFound =True

        Exit For

I figured it out.  Dictionary should be iDictionary.
