Hi, I am using Hashtable or HashMap to keep Key-Value pair of elements. But When I add them, The Hashtable or HashMap gets sorted depending on the keys. I want to retain the order in whcih I have added the key-value pair. Is there anyway to do it with Hashtable or HashMap ? Or Can I use any other Collection type which will have the mapping of key-value which is not sorted other than two dimensional Array.
Thanks for the time.

The hash code is calculated using some function and depends on the hash key entered. It cannot be assured in general where in the Map/Table the key gets inserted. The Map/Table may or maynot get sorted after each implementation. It depends entirely on how the hash code calculating function is internally implemented. regards, Rahul Gupta :roll:
