Bypasses a specified number of elements in a sequence and then returns the remaining elements.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
The type of the elements of source.
- Type: System.Int32
The number of elements to skip before returning the remaining elements.
Return ValueType: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable()
An IEnumerable(T) that contains the elements that occur after the specified index in the input sequence.
Usage NoteIn Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerable(). 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).
source is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
This method is implemented by using deferred execution. The immediate return value is an object that stores all the information that is required to perform the action. The query represented by this method is not executed until the object is enumerated either by calling its GetEnumerator method directly or by using foreach in Visual C# or For Each in Visual Basic.
If source contains fewer than count elements, an empty IEnumerable(T) is returned. If count is less than or equal to zero, all elements of source are yielded.
The Take(TSource) and methods are functional complements. Given a sequence coll and an integer n, concatenating the results of coll.Take(n) and coll.Skip(n) yields the same sequence as coll.
In Visual Basic query expression syntax, a Skip clause translates to an invocation of .
