Hi,

I have a hashtable hstAllDeps where keys are Guids and the value is a list(Of Guid). I need to be able to get a List(Of Guid) containing all keys that have the same list(Of Guid) as value.

How can I do this?

Kind Regards,

MrFawlty
Private Function AreTheSameListsOfGuids(ByVal lstGuids1 As List(Of Guid), ByVal lstGuids2 As List(Of Guid)) As Boolean
		Dim blnresult As Boolean
		Dim intCount As Integer = 0
		If lstGuids1 IsNot Nothing AndAlso lstGuids2 IsNot Nothing Then
			If lstGuids1.Count = lstGuids2.Count Then
				lstGuids1.Sort()
				lstGuids2.Sort()
				For Each guiElement1 As Guid In lstGuids1
					For Each guiElement2 As Guid In lstGuids2
						If Not guiElement1.Equals(guiElement2) Then
							intCount += 1
						End If
					Next
				Next
			End If
		End If
		If intCount > 0 Then
			blnresult = True
		End If
		Return blnresult
	End Function
