can I make namevaluecollection with non-comma delimited values

If I build a namevaluecollection by looping through a datatable, the nvc will automatically concatenate new values onto any exisitng ones with the same key. This feature is helpful for they way my data looks, so I'd like to keep the nvc and not try to use a hashtable, for instance.

But some of my values are messages containing commas, which will cause problems when I try to split those values later.

Is there a way to set the nvc's delimiter to be something other than a comma?

Use the GetValues() method, in conjunction with String.Join to get a delimited string....

    String.Join("|", nvc.GetValues(index:=3))

Note that if you use the GetValues() method, you do not need to split the resulting string, as it returns a string array.
