HashSet<T>

Overview

Represents an unordered collection of objects.

Elements in this collection can be accessed only using enumerator. Hashset accepts nil as a valid value for reference types and does not allows duplicate elements.

Note: On Nougat platform set internally converts nil to the NSNull type.

Use case

Due to its nature Hashset outperforms List<T> in some operations (such Remove, Contains) in cost of preserving items order, so you can use set when speed of those operations is crucial.

var Readers := new HashSet<String>;
Readers.Add("Aiden");
Readers.Add("Jayden");  
Readers.Add("Ethan");

writeLn("Readers:");  
Readers.ForEach(item -> writeLn(item));
writeLn;

var Writers := new HashSet<String>;
Writers.Add("Jayden");
Writers.Add("Jacob");

writeLn("Writers:");  
Writers.ForEach(item -> writeLn(item));
writeLn;
  
writeLn("All users:");
Writers.ForEach(item -> Readers.Add(item));
Readers.ForEach(item -> writeLn(item));

Output:

Readers:
Aiden
Jayden
Ethan

Writers:
Jayden
Jacob

All users:
Aiden
Jayden
Ethan
Jacob

Loops

Please note: Instead of using for/each or for/in loops in the collections please use ForEach methods.

For example:

var Items := new List<String>(["One", "Two", "Three"]);
Items.ForEach(item -> DoSomething(item));
