Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
- Type: System.Collections.IEnumerable
A sequence to convert.
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.
If the type of source implements IQueryable<T>, returns it directly. Otherwise, it returns an IQueryable<T> that executes queries by calling the equivalent query operator methods in Enumerable instead of those in Queryable.
This method assumes that source implements IEnumerable<T> for some T. At runtime, the result is of type IQueryable<T> for the same T. This method is useful in dynamic scenarios when you do not statically know the type of T.
