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?

 

Public

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

      EndIf

   Next

EndSub

I figured it out.  Dictionary should be iDictionary.
