Projection and Restriction Methods (LINQ to Entities)

[This topic is pre-release documentation and is subject to change in future releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Most of the LINQ projection and restriction methods are supported in LINQ to Entities queries, with the exception of those that accept a positional argument. For more information, see Standard Query Operators in LINQ to Entities Queries. The following table lists the supported and unsupported projection and restriction methods.
