Enumerable.GroupBy(TSource, TKey, TResult) Method (IEnumerable(TSource), Func(TSource, TKey), Func(TKey, IEnumerable(TSource), TResult), IEqualityComparer(TKey))

Groups the elements of a sequence according to a specified key selector function and creates a result value from each group and its key. The keys are compared by using a specified comparer.

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

static member GroupBy : 
        source:IEnumerable<'TSource> * 
        keySelector:Func<'TSource, 'TKey> * 
        resultSelector:Func<'TKey, IEnumerable<'TSource>, 'TResult> * 
        comparer:IEqualityComparer<'TKey> -> IEnumerable<'TResult> 

Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of source.

TKey

The type of the key returned by keySelector.

TResult

The type of the result value returned by resultSelector.

Parameters

source
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable(TSource)

An IEnumerable(T) whose elements to group.

keySelector
Type: System.Func(TSource, TKey)

A function to extract the key for each element.

resultSelector
Type: System.Func(TKey, IEnumerable(TSource), TResult)

A function to create a result value from each group.

comparer
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEqualityComparer(TKey)

An IEqualityComparer(T) to compare keys with.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable(TResult)
A collection of elements of type TResult where each element represents a projection over a group and its key.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerable(TSource). When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.
