Hello EE,

I got a list in vb.net  of strings

something like ;

01
3
02
9
03
1
04
0
05
5
06
8
07
1
08
1
etc...


it goes like that up to 100.  you see the pattern here.. actually its the number 01 to 100 and between them i have a value.
I would like to convert this to a dictionnary so that the key is the number 01 to 100 and the value is the value in between from the list...

can you help ?
thanks

Honestly, I think spelling this out in an old-skool For loop would be the easiest to read and understand.

e.g.

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Dim originalList As New List(Of String) From
        {
            "01",
            "3",
            "02",
            "9",
            "03",
            "1",
            "04",
            "0",
            "05",
            "5",
            "06",
            "8",
            "07",
            "1",
            "08",
            "1"
        }
        Dim theDictionary As New Dictionary(Of String, String)()

        For i As Integer = 0 To originalList.Count - 1 Step 2
            theDictionary.Add(originalList(i), originalList(i + 1))
        Next

        System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Break()
    End Sub

End Module
