C# Error message formatting

we currently have a very convoluted methodology for displaying error messages.  But right now, I would just like to know how to correct one specific message.
The code used to build the message is:
        /// <summary>
        /// Adds the error details.
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="message">The message.</param>
        /// <param name="errors">The errors.</param>
        private void AddErrorDetails(ref string message, Dictionary<string, string> errors)
        {
            if (errors == null)
            {
                return;
            }

            if (message == null)
            {
                message = string.Empty;
            }

            foreach (string key in errors.Keys)
            {
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(message))
                {
                    message += Environment.NewLine;
                }

                if (key != null)
                {
                    message += errors[key];
                }
            }
        }

Open in new window


the resulting message looks like:

I would like it to be more like:

Delivery succeeded but with errors. See below for details.
Adjusting stock:  NrfiInd=N, ParentMals UIC = 09107,  Niin = 007345641, Location - Staging......

you get the idea.
Any help would be appreciated.

Just to clarify, your question is about:
a) How to remove the curly braces regardless of their location?
b) How to remove extra key entry? e.g.  ParentMals={ParentMals UIC = 09107} to  ParentMals UIC = 09107
c) Are the extra keys well known values? (e.g. we can create a list so that we can replace them accordingly)

For (a), you just need to replace the braces with a blank space as follows:
message.Replace("{", " ").Replace("}", " ");

Open in new window



If more help is needed please post errors[key] contents and answer to my questions.

a. worked great, thank you.
b. yes that's how I want it to display
c.  no they are volatile and set at run time

I'm not at the office right now, I will try to get the errors[key] content as soon as I can
