Hi,

I have a 2-D array. First dimension has name of control and the second dimension has the associated value. Let us say first dimension has name of all text boxes and the second has its value. Now how do I seach value for a particular text box, for example, I want to know the value of say txtName?

I do not want to loop through the array as my array will be large and this approach will be time consuimg.

Regards,
MI

The built-in search methods do not support multi-dimensional arrays.

If possible, I would not use an array, but use a Hashtable in .NET 1.1 or a Dictionary<string,???> in .NET 2.0 where ??? is the type of value you want to store.  There are much easier to search and manupulate than a 2-D array.
