StringBuilder Constructor (Int32, Int32)
[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]
Initializes a new instance of the StringBuilder class that starts with a specified capacity and can grow to a specified maximum.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Public Sub New ( _ capacity As Integer, _ maxCapacity As Integer _ )
public StringBuilder( int capacity, int maxCapacity )
The maximum number of characters the current string can contain.
maxCapacity is less than one, capacity is less than zero, or capacity is greater than maxCapacity.
The capacity parameter defines the maximum number of characters that can be stored in the memory that is allocated by the current instance. Its value is assigned to the Capacity property. If the number of characters to be stored in the current instance exceeds this capacity value, the StringBuilder object allocates additional memory to store them.
If capacity is 0 (zero), the implementation-specific default capacity is used.
The maxCapacity parameter defines the maximum number of characters that the current instance can hold. If the number of characters to be stored in the current instance exceeds this maxCapacity value, the StringBuilder object does not allocate additional memory, but instead throws an exception.
The following code example demonstrates how to call the StringBuilder constructor with a specified capacity and maximum capacity.
Dim capacity As Integer = 255 Dim maxCapacity As Integer = 1024 Dim stringBuilder As New StringBuilder(capacity, maxCapacity)
int capacity = 255; int maxCapacity = 1024; StringBuilder stringBuilder = new StringBuilder(capacity, maxCapacity);
