Queue<T> Constructor (Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the Queue<T> class that is empty and has the specified initial capacity.

Namespace:  System.Collections.Generic
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public Queue(
	int capacity
)

Parameters

capacity
Type: System.Int32

The initial number of elements that the Queue<T> can contain.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

capacity is less than zero.

The capacity of a Queue<T> is the number of elements that the Queue<T> can hold. As elements are added to a Queue<T>, 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 Queue<T>.

The capacity can be decreased by calling TrimExcess.

This constructor is an O(n) operation, where n is capacity.
