Hashtable.Hashtable(SerializationInfo, StreamingContext) Constructor
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Protected Sub New ( _ info As SerializationInfo, _ context As StreamingContext _ ) 'Usage Dim info As SerializationInfo Dim context As StreamingContext Dim instance As New Hashtable(info, context)
A StreamingContext object containing the source and destination of the serialized stream associated with the Hashtable.
info is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
A hash table's capacity is used to calculate the optimal number of hash table buckets based on the load factor. Capacity is automatically increased as required.
The load factor is the maximum ratio of elements to buckets. A smaller load factor means faster lookup at the cost of increased memory consumption.
When the actual load factor reaches the specified load factor, the number of buckets is automatically increased to the smallest prime number that is larger than twice the current number of buckets.
The hash code provider dispenses hash codes for keys in the Hashtable object. The default hash code provider is the key's implementation of Object.GetHashCode.
The comparer determines whether two keys are equal. Every key in a Hashtable must be unique. The default comparer is the key's implementation of Object.Equals.
This constructor is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
Because serializing and deserializing an enumerator for a Hashtable can cause the elements to become reordered, it is not possible to continue enumeration without calling the Reset method.
