HybridDictionary Constructor (Int32, Boolean)

Creates a HybridDictionary with the specified initial size and case sensitivity.

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

public HybridDictionary(
	int initialSize,
	bool caseInsensitive
)

Parameters

initialSize
Type: System.Int32
The approximate number of entries that the HybridDictionary can initially contain.
caseInsensitive
Type: System.Boolean
A Boolean that denotes whether the HybridDictionary is case-insensitive.

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.

If caseInsensitive is false, the collection uses the key's implementations of Object.GetHashCode and Object.Equals. If caseInsensitive is true, the collection performs a simple ordinal case-insensitive comparison, which obeys the casing rules of the invariant culture only. For more information on the invariant culture, see System.Globalization.CultureInfo.

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