Gets or sets the number of elements that the SortedList<TKey, TValue> can contain.

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

public int Capacity { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of elements that the SortedList<TKey, TValue> can contain.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

Capacity is set to a value that is less than Count.

OutOfMemoryException

There is not enough memory available on the system.

Capacity is the number of elements that the SortedList<TKey, TValue> can store. Count is the number of elements that are actually in the SortedList<TKey, TValue>.

Capacity is always greater than or equal to Count. If Count exceeds Capacity while adding elements, the capacity is increased by automatically reallocating the internal array before copying the old elements and adding the new elements.

The capacity can be decreased by calling TrimExcess or by setting the Capacity property explicitly. When the value of Capacity is set explicitly, the internal array is also reallocated to accommodate the specified capacity.

Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation; setting the property is an O(n) operation, where n is the new capacity.
