Queryable::ElementAt<TSource> Method

Returns the element at a specified index in a sequence.

Namespace:  System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
[ExtensionAttribute]
public:
generic<typename TSource>
static TSource ElementAt(
	IQueryable<TSource>^ source, 
	int index
)

Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of source.

Parameters

source
Type: System.Linq::IQueryable<TSource>
An IQueryable<T> to return an element from.
index
Type: System::Int32
The zero-based index of the element to retrieve.

Return Value

Type: TSource
The element at the specified position in source.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IQueryable<TSource>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source is nullptr.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

index is less than zero.

The ElementAt<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, Int32) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling ElementAt<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, Int32) itself as a constructed generic method. It then passes the MethodCallExpression to the Execute<TResult>(Expression) method of the IQueryProvider represented by the Provider property of the source parameter.

The query behavior that occurs as a result of executing an expression tree that represents calling ElementAt<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, Int32) depends on the implementation of the type of the source parameter. The expected behavior is that it returns the item at position index in source.

The following code example demonstrates how to use ElementAt<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, Int32) to return an element at a specific position in a sequence.
