SortedList.Capacity Property

Gets or sets the capacity of a SortedList object.

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

public virtual int Capacity { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
The number of elements that the SortedList object can contain.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The value assigned is less than the current number of elements in the SortedList object.

OutOfMemoryException

There is not enough memory available on the system.

Capacity is the number of elements that the SortedList object can store. Count is the number of elements that are actually in the SortedList.

Capacity is always greater than or equal to Count. If Count exceeds Capacity while adding elements, the capacity is automatically increased by reallocating the internal array before copying the old elements and adding the new elements.

The capacity can be decreased by calling TrimToSize or by setting the Capacity property explicitly. When the value of Capacity is set explicitly, the internal array is also reallocated to accommodate the specified capacity.

Retrieving the value of this property is an O(1) operation; setting the property is an O(n) operation, where n is the new capacity.
