Type Parameters


The type of the elements of source.


Type: System.Collections.GenericIEnumerableTSource

An IEnumerableT to return an element from.

Type: SystemFuncTSource, Boolean

A function to test each element for a condition.

Return Value

Type: TSource
default(TSource) if the sequence is empty or if no elements pass the test in the predicate function; otherwise, the last element that passes the test in the predicate function.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerableTSource. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

source or predicate is .


The default value for reference and nullable types is .


The following code example demonstrates how to use LastOrDefaultTSource(IEnumerableTSource, FuncTSource, Boolean) by passing in a predicate. In the second call to the method, there is no element in the sequence that satisfies the condition.

        ' Create an array of doubles. 
        Dim numbers() As Double = {49.6, 52.3, 51.0, 49.4, 50.2, 48.3}

        ' Get the last item whose value rounds to 50.0. 
        Dim number50 As Double = _
            numbers.LastOrDefault(Function(n) Math.Round(n) = 50.0)

        Dim output As New System.Text.StringBuilder
        output.AppendLine("The last number that rounds to 50 is " & number50)

        ' Get the last item whose value rounds to 40.0. 
        Dim number40 As Double = _
            numbers.LastOrDefault(Function(n) Math.Round(n) = 40.0)

        Dim text As String = IIf(number40 = 0.0, _
                                 "[DOES NOT EXIST]", _
        output.AppendLine("The last number that rounds to 40 is " & text)

        ' Display the output.

        ' This code produces the following output: 
        ' The last number that rounds to 50 is 50.2 
        ' The last number that rounds to 40 is [DOES NOT EXIST]
double[] numbers = { 49.6, 52.3, 51.0, 49.4, 50.2, 48.3 };

            double last50 = numbers.LastOrDefault(n => Math.Round(n) == 50.0);

            Console.WriteLine("The last number that rounds to 50 is {0}.", last50);

            double last40 = numbers.LastOrDefault(n => Math.Round(n) == 40.0);

                "The last number that rounds to 40 is {0}.",
                last40 == 0.0 ? "<DOES NOT EXIST>" : last40.ToString());

             This code produces the following output:

             The last number that rounds to 50 is 50.2.
             The last number that rounds to 40 is <DOES NOT EXIST>.
