ArrayList Constructor (Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the ArrayList class that is empty and has the specified initial capacity.

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

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
	capacity As Integer _
)

Parameters

capacity
Type: System.Int32

The number of elements that the new list can initially store.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

capacity is less than zero.

The capacity of an ArrayList is the number of elements that the ArrayList can hold. As elements are added to an ArrayList, 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 ArrayList.

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