Hi guys,
I have a class employees.
I have one generic class <tkey,tdata>
I have one dictionary <tkey,tdata>
I want to store the Employee info to a file.
After saving the object of Employees to Tdata (value) of dictionary, I cannot get the info of employee (firstname, lastname...) from dictionary in order to create a xml file.
Any idea to cast the value of dictionary to Employee to get the properties of employee class?
I can get the object of Employee by a foreach(var item in dictionary) => item.Value
but I cannot cast to get the properties of the employee class!
Thank you!
Main Class:
EmployeeMNG<string,employees> empMNG= new EmployeeMNG<string,employees>();
Employees s= new Employees();
s.empNo = 11;
s.firstName = "khoaxml";
s.lastName = "nguyen";
s.address = "47 nguyen hong"; = "VN";
empMNG.add("stu", s); ///add to dictionary"file.xml");
Generic Class:
public class EmpMNG<tkey,tdata> : IEmpMNG&lt<tkey,tdata>
private Dictionary<tkey,tdata> cache;
public EmpMNG()
cache = new Dictionary<tkey,tdata>();
//add to dictionary
public TData add(TKey key, TData data)
if (!cache.ContainsKey(key))
cache[key] = data;
return cache[key];
public void Save(string xmlPath)
foreach (var item in cache)//cache is dictionary
Console.WriteLine(item.Value);//here I get object of Employee class, which is passed from the main class
//is there any way to get the properties of Employee from here? I dont know how to cast with the Dictionary, thank you!!

Use my article for serializing the data : fastJSON[^]
It is better and more forgiving than XML serialization.
