how to remove object from NSDictionary

Hi i am having a NSdictionary in which i am adding a array with key "countries ". Now i take the value of this dictionary into array and sort the array in alpahbatical order .Now i want to add this array into my Dictionary (that is i want to update my dictionary with new sorted array and remove the old array from it )........ how to do this

My code is as follows

NSArray *countriesToLiveInArray = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:@"Iceland", @"Greenland", @"Switzerland", @"Norway", @"New Zealand", @"Greece", @"Italy", @"Ireland", nil];
NSDictionary *countriesToLiveInDict = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithObject:countriesToLiveInArray forKey:@"Countries"];


NSArray *tmpary = [countriesToLiveInDict valueForKey:@"Countries"];
NSLog(@"ary value is %@",ary);
NSArray *sortedArray = [tmpary sortedArrayUsingSelector:@selector(caseInsensitiveCompare:)];
NSLog(@"sortedArray is %@",sortedArray);


Here i want to remove the countriesToLiveInArray and replace it with sortedArray with same key value i.e. Countries
Thanks in advance..

Answer

First you need to use a NSMutableDictionary and put this code :

[countriesToLiveInDict removeObjectForKey:@"Countries"];
[countriesToLiveInDict setObject:sortedArray forKey:@"Countries"];
