Why am I getting this error, and how do I properly fix it? Error Option Strict On disallows implicit conversions from 'System.Collections.IDictionary' to 'System.Collections.Hashtable'
Posted on 2006-07-21
I am a former Java programmer that is getting back into .NET after some time off. I had worked with C# before, and prefer it over VB.NET, but this is what we are using to build right now. Isn't a Hashtable a subclass of an IDictionary interface? If so, why is it not allowing me to convert it, and how do I do so?
Since there is a critical time component to this, I am awarding 500 pts to anyone who can specify exactly how to fix this issue...
Thanks for all your help.
