HashSet<T> Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the HashSet<T> class that is empty and uses the default equality comparer for the set type.

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

public HashSet()

The capacity of a HashSet<T> object is the number of elements that the object can hold. A HashSet<T> object's capacity automatically increases as elements are added to the object.

This constructor is an O(1) operation.

The following example demonstrates how to create and populate two HashSet<T> objects. This example is part of a larger example provided for the UnionWith method.

HashSet<int> evenNumbers = new HashSet<int>();
HashSet<int> oddNumbers = new HashSet<int>();

for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
{
    // Populate numbers with just even numbers.
    evenNumbers.Add(i * 2);

    // Populate oddNumbers with just odd numbers.
    oddNumbers.Add((i * 2) + 1);
}
