StringBuilder Constructor (Int32)

[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Initializes a new instance of the StringBuilder class using the specified capacity.

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

new : 
        capacity:int -> StringBuilder

Parameters

capacity
Type: System..::..Int32
The suggested starting size of this instance.

The capacity parameter defines the maximum number of characters that can be stored in the memory allocated by the current instance. Its value is assigned to the Capacity property. If the number of characters to be stored in the current instance exceeds this capacity value, the StringBuilder object allocates additional memory to store them.

The string value of this instance is set to String..::..Empty. If capacity is zero, the implementation-specific default capacity is used.
