Hashtable Constructor (Int32)
Initializes a new, empty instance of the Hashtable class using the specified initial capacity, and the default load factor, hash code provider, and comparer.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Specifying the initial capacity eliminates the need to perform a number of resizing operations while adding elements to the Hashtable object. Capacity is automatically increased as required based on the load factor.
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.
This constructor is an O(n) operation, where n is capacity.
