Queryable.SequenceEqual(TSource) Method (IQueryable(TSource), IEnumerable(TSource))
Determines whether two sequences are equal by using the default equality comparer to compare elements.
Assemblies: System.Linq.Queryable (in System.Linq.Queryable.dll)
System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
static member SequenceEqual : source1:IQueryable<'TSource> * source2:IEnumerable<'TSource> -> bool
The type of the elements of the input sequences.
- Type: System.Linq.IQueryable()
An IQueryable(T) whose elements to compare to those of source2.
Return ValueType: System.Boolean
true if the two source sequences are of equal length and their corresponding elements compare equal; otherwise, false.
Usage NoteIn Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IQueryable(). 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).
source1 or source2 is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
The method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling 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 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.
The following code example demonstrates how to use to determine whether two sequences are equal. In this example the sequences are equal.
The following code example compares two sequences that are not equal.
