Queryable::SequenceEqual<TSource> Method (IQueryable<TSource>^, IEnumerable<TSource>^, IEqualityComparer<TSource>^)


Determines whether two sequences are equal by using a specified IEqualityComparer<T> to compare elements.

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

generic<typename TSource>
static bool SequenceEqual(
	IQueryable<TSource>^ source1,
	IEnumerable<TSource>^ source2,
	IEqualityComparer<TSource>^ comparer


Type: System.Linq::IQueryable<TSource>^

An IQueryable<T> whose elements to compare to those of source2.

Type: System.Collections.Generic::IEnumerable<TSource>^

An IEnumerable<T> whose elements to compare to those of the first sequence.

Type: System.Collections.Generic::IEqualityComparer<TSource>^

An IEqualityComparer<T> to use to compare elements.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true if the two source sequences are of equal length and their corresponding elements compare equal; otherwise, false.

Type Parameters


The type of the elements of the input sequences.

Exception Condition

source1 or source2 is null.

The SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>^, IEnumerable<TSource>^, IEqualityComparer<TSource>^) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>^, IEnumerable<TSource>^, IEqualityComparer<TSource>^) itself as a constructed generic method. It then passes the MethodCallExpression to the Execute<TResult>(Expression^) method of the IQueryProvider represented by the Provider property of the source1 parameter.

The query behavior that occurs as a result of executing an expression tree that represents calling SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>^, IEnumerable<TSource>^, IEqualityComparer<TSource>^) depends on the implementation of the type of the source1 parameter. The expected behavior is that it determines if the two source sequences are equal by using comparer to compare elements.
