Queryable.Sum Method (IQueryable<Single>)

Computes the sum of a sequence of Single values.

Namespace:  System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public static float Sum(
	this IQueryable<float> source
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.Linq.IQueryable<Single>
A sequence of Single values to calculate the sum of.

Return Value

Type: System.Single
The sum of the values in the sequence.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IQueryable<Single>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

The Sum(IQueryable<Single>) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling Sum(IQueryable<Single>) 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 Sum(IQueryable<Single>) depends on the implementation of the type of the source parameter. The expected behavior is that it returns the sum of the values in source.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Sum(IQueryable<Single>) to sum the values of a sequence.


         List<float> numbers = new List<float> { 43.68F, 1.25F, 583.7F, 6.5F };

         float sum = numbers.AsQueryable().Sum();

         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The sum of the numbers is {0}.", sum) + "\n";

         /*
             This code produces the following output:

             The sum of the numbers is 635.13.
         */
