NameObjectCollectionBase Constructor (Int32)

 

Initializes a new instance of the NameObjectCollectionBase class that is empty, has the specified initial capacity, and uses the default hash code provider and the default comparer.

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

Protected Sub New (
	capacity As Integer
)

Parameters

capacity
Type: System.Int32

The approximate number of entries that the NameObjectCollectionBase instance can initially contain.

Exception Condition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

capacity is less than zero.

The capacity of a NameObjectCollectionBase is the number of elements that the NameObjectCollectionBase can hold. As elements are added to a NameObjectCollectionBase, 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 NameObjectCollectionBase.

The hash code provider dispenses hash codes for keys in the NameObjectCollectionBase instance. The default hash code provider is the CaseInsensitiveHashCodeProvider.

The comparer determines whether two keys are equal. The default comparer is the CaseInsensitiveComparer.

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