Generic Classes question

Hi experts,
I wanted to build a sorted list structure something like the generic SortedList class in C# but I am not able to change the value of an element after Add()ing it (since it is readonly property). I need to read the value, sum it and write back, as I do not know its final value when I Add() it to the structure.
Is there a way to over come this limitation?

How are you using the sorted list, do you have an example?

When I did:

SortedList SL = new SortedList();
SL.Add("Obj1", 1);      
SL.Add("Obj2", 2);
SL.Add("Obj3", 3);
SL.Add("Obj4", 4);
SL["Obj1"] = 2;
MessageBox.Show(SL["Obj1"].ToString());

I didn't get a problem, probably I misunderstand your usage.
