Read back from dictionary collection c#

In the code below, after storing some data into 5 objects, I have stored them in a dictionary object using sting keys.

                RodCriteria criteriaLeft= new RodCriteria("CriteriaLeft",101,2,"2014");
                RodCriteria criteriaRight= new RodCriteria("criteriaRight",105,2,"2014");
                RodCriteria criteriaSide= new RodCriteria("criteriaSide",121,2,"2014");
                RodCriteria criteriaGeneral= new RodCriteria("criteriaGeneral",200,2,"2014");
                RodCriteria criteriaDef= new RodCriteria("criteriaDef",100,1,"2014");

                Dictionary<string, RodCriteria> CriteriaCollection = new Dictionary<string, RodCriteria>();
                CriteriaCollection["criteriaLeft"]=criteriaLeft;
                CriteriaCollection["criteriaRight"]=criteriaRight;
                CriteriaCollection["[b]criteriaSide[/b]"]=[b]criteriaSide[/b];
                CriteriaCollection["criteriaGeneral"]=criteriaGeneral;
                CriteriaCollection["criteriaDef"]=criteriaDef;

Open in new window

Now, starting with the dictionary CriteriaCollection and having a key string such as criteriaSide, I want to read back its date as I had them in:

RodCriteria criteriaSide= new RodCriteria("criteriaSide",121,2,"2014");


This should give me:

"criteriaSide"
121
2
2014

Question: How can I do this?

Thank you.

See: http://www.dotnetperls.com/dictionary

To read from the dictionary use the index syntax with the key:
RodCriteria ReadFromDict = CriteriaCollection["criteriaSide"];

Open in new window

Now whatever fields or properties of a RodCreteria Type caontain the values 121,2, and"2014" contain them again

Bye, Olaf.
