C#2.0 Dictionary<Key, Value> indexer operation is strange?

Hi ,

I use VS 2005 beta1 to do some thing as follows.

declare a Dictionary<ulon g,DelegateTyep> dictionary = new ...

and use dictionary object such as

dictionary [aUlongNumber] += aDelegateTyepOb ject;

then compiler is ok ,but throw KeyNotFoundExce ption at run-time.
OK,I think just a missed initailization, thne add it like

dictionary[aUlongNumber] = null;

It becomes to be vary strange.It doesn't throw exception any more.

What's difference between '=' and '+=' on Dictionary's indexer operation?
Them are also assigning value to indexing entry,right?
Or some thiing compiler do for '+=' operator(Delega te.Combine)?

Thanks for your help

The same as always; += expands to

dictionary[aUlongNumber] = dictionary[aUlongNumber] +
aDelegateTypeOb ject;

and retrieving dictionary[aUlongNumber] before you have added that key
to the dictionary will throw an exception.

Hi, I'm trying to use a generics dictionary with a key class that implements and needs IComparable<>. However when I attempt to use the dictionary, it doesn't appear to use the IComparable<> to find the key. In the example below, accessing the dictionary by using the exact key object that was used to add to the dictionary works. (see code comment 1). However, if I attempt to access the dictionary by using a key object that

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
