Use collection initializer

On the "new" in the first line of code below, I get the warning to "Use collection initializer".
What would I do to heed this warning and would it be better than the current code?
var rpArray = new System.Collections.ArrayList();
rpArray.Add(new Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportParameter("@Number", this.Number));

A connection initializer looks like this:

var rpArray = new System.Collections.ArrayList()
{
    new Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportParameter("@Number", this.Number),
    new Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportParameter("@SomeOtherNumber", this.AnotherNumber),
    new Microsoft.Reporting.WebForms.ReportParameter("@StillAnotherNumber", this.YetAnotherNumber),
};

I take it this warning was received from Code Analysis?

Honestly, I do not know, nor can I find (in searching) a reason why the analyzer would prefer the initializer. I did find that at times it can be detrimental to use an initializer. Other than that, I'm afraid I don't know what to tell you. Either approach looks fine in my opinion. Feel free to wait for others to comment on it.
