NameValueCollection Constructor (NameValueCollection)

Copies the entries from the specified NameValueCollection to a new NameValueCollection with the same initial capacity as the number of entries copied and using the same hash code provider and the same comparer as the source collection.

Namespace:  System.Collections.Specialized
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public NameValueCollection(
	NameValueCollection col
)

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

col is null.

The capacity of a NameValueCollection is the number of elements that the NameValueCollection can hold. As elements are added to a NameValueCollection, the capacity is automatically increased as required by reallocating the internal array.

If the size of the collection can be estimated, specifying the initial capacity eliminates the need to perform a number of resizing operations while adding elements to the NameValueCollection.

The hash code provider dispenses hash codes for keys in the NameValueCollection. The default hash code provider is the CaseInsensitiveHashCodeProvider.

The comparer determines whether two keys are equal. The default comparer is the CaseInsensitiveComparer.

The elements of the new NameValueCollection are sorted in the same order as the source NameValueCollection.

This constructor is an O(n) operation, where n is the number of elements in col.
