Hi

I have two dictionary object variables
I want to know if they are different or not. I expect them to be totally alike but I want to have a fast check.
What is the fastest way to compare these two dictionaries. I would prefer not having to loop through them

any ideas?

You can't directly compare the list & the dictionary, but you could compare the list of values from the Dictionary with the list

Enumerable.SequenceEqual

Determines whether two sequences are equal by comparing their elements by using a specified IEqualityComparer(T).
