Enumerable.Count<'TSource> Method (IEnumerable<'TSource>, Func<'TSource, Boolean>)

 

Returns a number that represents how many elements in the specified sequence satisfy a condition.

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

static member Count<'TSource> : 
        source:IEnumerable<'TSource> *
        predicate:Func<'TSource, bool> -> int

Parameters

source
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<'TSource>

A sequence that contains elements to be tested and counted.

predicate
Type: System.Func<'TSource, Boolean>

A function to test each element for a condition.

Return Value

Type: System.Int32

A number that represents how many elements in the sequence satisfy the condition in the predicate function.

Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of source.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source or predicate is null.

OverflowException

The number of elements in source is larger than MaxValue.

If the type of source implements ICollection<'T>, that implementation is used to obtain the count of elements. Otherwise, this method determines the count.

You should use the LongCount<'TSource> method when you expect and want to allow the result to be greater than MaxValue.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Count() clause translates to an invocation of Count.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Count<'TSource>(IEnumerable<'TSource>, Func<'TSource, Boolean>) to count the elements in an array that satisfy a condition.
