Stack<T> Constructor (Int32)


Initializes a new instance of the Stack<T> class that is empty and has the specified initial capacity or the default initial capacity, whichever is greater.

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

public Stack(
	int capacity


Type: System.Int32

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

Exception Condition

capacity is less than zero.

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

The capacity can be decreased by calling TrimExcess.

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