IEnumerable Interface

Exposes the enumerator, which supports a simple iteration over a non-generic collection.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
[GuidAttribute(L"496B0ABE-CDEE-11d3-88E8-00902754C43A")] 
public interface class IEnumerable
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute GuidAttribute("496B0ABE-CDEE-11d3-88E8-00902754C43A") */ 
public interface IEnumerable
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
GuidAttribute("496B0ABE-CDEE-11d3-88E8-00902754C43A") 
public interface IEnumerable
Not applicable.

For the generic version of this interface see System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable.

Notes to Implementers: IEnumerable must be implemented to support the foreach semantics of Microsoft Visual Basic. COM classes that allow enumerators also implement this interface.

The following code example demonstrates the implementation of the IEnumerable and IEnumerator interfaces for a custom collection. In this example, members of these interfaces are not explicitly called, but they are implemented to support the use of foreach (For Each in Visual Basic) to iterate through the collection.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
