Property Value

Type: String
the field with the specified name

ArgumentNullException Either the name or value are null.
KeyNotFoundException The property is retrieved and name is not an existing field.

This property provides the ability to access a specific element in the collection by using the following syntax: eptFieldCollection[name] (eptFieldCollection(name) in Visual Basic).

You can also use the ItemString property to add new elements by setting the value of a key that does not exist in the dictionary; for example,

= myValue in C#
= myValue in Visual Basic). However, if the specified key already exists in the field collection, setting the ItemString property overwrites the old value. In contrast, the AddField(String, String) method does not modify existing elements.

If you like to set a value to a field only if it exists you can use the TrySetValue(String, String) method instead.
