Hashtable Constructor (SerializationInfo, StreamingContext)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationInfo
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.
This constructor is an O(n) operation, where n is Count.
