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).
If the type of source implements ICollection(T), that implementation is used to obtain the count of elements. Otherwise, this method determines the count.
In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Count() clause translates to an invocation of Count.
