Enumerable.Repeat<TResult> Method

July 28, 2014

Generates a sequence that contains one repeated value.

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

public static IEnumerable<TResult> Repeat<TResult>(
	TResult element,
	int count
)

Type Parameters

TResult

The type of the value to be repeated in the result sequence.

Parameters

element
Type: TResult
The value to be repeated.
count
Type: System.Int32
The number of times to repeat the value in the generated sequence.

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<TResult>
An IEnumerable<T> that contains a repeated value.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentOutOfRangeException

count is less than 0.

This method is implemented by using deferred execution. The immediate return value is an object that stores all the information that is required to perform the action. The query represented by this method is not executed until the object is enumerated either by calling its GetEnumerator method directly or by using foreach in Visual C# or For Each in Visual Basic.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Repeat<TResult> to generate a sequence of a repeated value.


      IEnumerable<string> strings =
          Enumerable.Repeat("I like programming.", 15);

      foreach (String str in strings)
      {
         outputBlock.Text += str + "\n";
      }

      /*
       This code produces the following output:

       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
       I like programming.
