  • Object Model.

    class Entity


    public Guid Id {get;}

    public Type Type{get; set;}

    public IList<Entity> Collection{get;}


    In another class there is a Dictionary<Guid, Values>, the type of values here is not important. What i am attempting to do is look in this dictionary to see if the id of entity matches the key, if so then copy values to  the collection in entity. Then we need to loop through the collection in the entity and repeat the above process until all the keys in the dictionary have been processed. The collection is nested.

  • public void Process(Entity entity, Dictionary<Guid, object> lookup)
        entity.Value = lookup[entity.Id];
        foreach (Entity child in entity.Collection)
            Process(child, lookup);
