Represents a particular manner of splitting an orderable data source into multiple partitions.

System.Object
  System.Collections.Concurrent.Partitioner<TSource>
    System.Collections.Concurrent.OrderablePartitioner<TSource>

Namespace:  System.Collections.Concurrent
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Synchronization = true, 
	ExternalThreading = true)]
public abstract class OrderablePartitioner<TSource> : Partitioner<TSource>

Type Parameters

TSource

Type of the elements in the collection.

The OrderablePartitioner<TSource> type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Protected methodOrderablePartitioner<TSource>Called from constructors in derived classes to initialize the OrderablePartitioner<TSource> class with the specified constraints on the index keys.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyKeysNormalizedGets whether order keys are normalized.
Public propertyKeysOrderedAcrossPartitionsGets whether elements in an earlier partition always come before elements in a later partition.
Public propertyKeysOrderedInEachPartitionGets whether elements in each partition are yielded in the order of increasing keys.
Public propertySupportsDynamicPartitionsGets whether additional partitions can be created dynamically. (Inherited from Partitioner<TSource>.)
Top

  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetDynamicPartitionsCreates an object that can partition the underlying collection into a variable number of partitions. (Overrides Partitioner<TSource>.GetDynamicPartitions().)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetOrderableDynamicPartitionsCreates an object that can partition the underlying collection into a variable number of partitions.
Public methodGetOrderablePartitionsPartitions the underlying collection into the specified number of orderable partitions.
Public methodGetPartitionsPartitions the underlying collection into the given number of ordered partitions. (Overrides Partitioner<TSource>.GetPartitions(Int32).)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Top

  NameDescription
Public Extension MethodAsParallel<TSource>Enables parallelization of a query, as sourced by a custom partitioner that is responsible for splitting the input sequence into partitions. (Defined by ParallelEnumerable.)
Top

The implementation of the derived class is responsible for ordering the elements into key-value pairs in whatever manner is appropriate. For more information, see Custom Partitioners for PLINQ and TPL.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: Synchronization | ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
