The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Creates a case-sensitive HybridDictionary with the specified initial size.

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

Public Sub New (
	initialSize As Integer
)

Parameters

initialSize
Type: System.Int32

The approximate number of entries that the HybridDictionary can initially contain.

If the initial size of the collection is greater than the optimal size for a ListDictionary, the collection is stored in a Hashtable to avoid the overhead of copying elements from the ListDictionary to the Hashtable.

By default, the collection is case-sensitive and uses the key's implementation of Object.GetHashCode as the hash code provider and the key's implementation of Object.Equals as the comparer.

The comparer determines whether two keys are equal. Every key in a HybridDictionary must be unique.

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