Case insensitive string for use in dictionary?

I need a dictionary to have a key that is a string but ignores case. I've decompiled the Dictionary type and it basically creates a hash table of the key's hash code. I can't subclass string because its a primitive type so I've created my own class to use as a key:

struct StringCaseInsensitiveHash { private readonly string _innerString; public StringCaseInsensitiveHash(string str) { _innerString = str; } public static implicit operator string(StringCaseInsensitiveHash stringCaseInsensitiveHash) { return stringCaseInsensitiveHash._innerString; } public override int GetHashCode() { return _innerString.ToLower().GetHashCode(); } }

Is there a better way to do this though?

Thanks,

Answer1:

Dictionary constructor allows you to pass IEqualityComparer which it will use to compare the keys and for hashing purpose too.

You can use StringComparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase , StringComparer.CurrentCultureIgnoreCase or StringComparer.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase depends upon your need.

More info available in MSDN

var myDictionary = new Dictionary<string, string>(StringComparer.OrdinalIgnoreCase);
