SortedList Constructor (IDictionary)
Initializes a new instance of the SortedList class that contains elements copied from the specified dictionary, has the same initial capacity as the number of elements copied, and is sorted according to the IComparable interface implemented by each key.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Each key must implement the IComparable interface to be capable of comparisons with every other key in the SortedList object. The elements are sorted according to the IComparable implementation of each key added to the SortedList.
The capacity of a SortedList object is the number of elements that the SortedList can hold. As elements are added to a SortedList, 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 SortedList object.
This constructor is an O(n) operation, where n is the number of elements in d.
