This method can be used to minimize a collection's memory overhead if no new elements will be added to the collection. The cost of reallocating and copying a large SortedList<TKey,TValue> can be considerable, however, so the TrimExcess method does nothing if the list is at more than 90 percent of capacity. This avoids incurring a large reallocation cost for a relatively small gain.
This method is an O(
n) operation, where
n is Count.
To reset a SortedList<TKey,TValue> to its initial state, call the Clear method before calling TrimExcess method. Trimming an empty SortedList<TKey,TValue> sets the capacity of the SortedList<TKey,TValue> to the default capacity.
The capacity can also be set using the Capacity property.
