Error : The given key was not present in the dictionary in C# Asp.Net Core

Dung Do Tien Apr 08 2021 3

Hi, I created a project using Asp.Net Core to display some articles. I have created an enum to define category as below:

 public enum ArticlesType
{
    Normal = 1, 
    CarCompare = 2, 
    Tips = 3, 
    NewCar = 4, 
    Gallery = 5,
    Stories = 6,
    Promos = 7, 
    Cluster = 8
}

And below is my action controller to display list articles:

 [HttpGet]
public IHttpActionResult Get(short articletype = (short)ArticlesType.Normal, short displaytype = 0)
{
    //......
    string titlePage = articletype > 0 ? ArticlesHelper.ArticlesTypeName[articletype] : ""; 
   //.......
}

but when localhost:1987/article/8/0 running app and call to action Get I got an error: The given key was not present in the dictionary.

 {"Message":"An error has occurred.","ExceptionMessage":"The given key was not present in the dictionary.","ExceptionType":"System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException","StackTrace":"

How can I resolve it?

  • Oh, This error throws when you get an item from a list but that item not existed in the list. So in ArticlesHelper.ArticlesTypeName list has to content ArticlesType equal 8.

    For example:

     Dictionary<String, String> test = new Dictionary<String,String>();
    test.Add("Key1","Value1");
    string error = test["Key2"]; // this line will throw error he given key was not present in the dictionary 

    I hope it useful for you.
