An IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) is an IEnumerable(Of T) that additionally has a key. The key represents the attribute that is common to each value in the IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement).

The values of an IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) are accessed much as the elements of an IEnumerable(Of T) are accessed. For example, you can access the values by using a foreach in Visual C# or For Each in Visual Basic loop to iterate through the IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object. The Example section contains a code example that shows you how to access both the key and the values of an IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object.

The IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) type is used by the GroupBy standard query operator methods, which return a sequence of elements of type IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement).

The following example demonstrates how to work with an IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object.

In this example, GroupBy(Of TSource, TKey)(IEnumerable(Of TSource), Func(Of TSource, TKey)) is called on the array of MemberInfo objects returned by GetMembers. GroupBy(Of TSource, TKey)(IEnumerable(Of TSource), Func(Of TSource, TKey)) groups the objects based on the value of their MemberType property. Each unique value for MemberType in the array of MemberInfo objects becomes a key for a new IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object, and the MemberInfo objects that have that key form the IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object's sequence of values.

Finally, the First method is called on the sequence of IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) objects to obtain just the first IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object.

The example then outputs the key of the IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object and the Name property of each value in the IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object's sequence of values. Notice that to access an IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) object's sequence of values, you simply use the IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) variable itself.


      ' Get an IGrouping object.
      Dim group As IGrouping(Of System.Reflection.MemberTypes, System.Reflection.MemberInfo) = _
          Type.GetType("System.String").GetMembers(). _
          GroupBy(Function(member) member.MemberType). _
          First()

      ' Output the key of the IGrouping, then iterate
      ' through each value in the sequence of values
      ' of the IGrouping and output its Name property.
      outputBlock.Text &= (String.Format("Values that have the key '{0}':", group.Key) & vbCrLf)
      For Each mi As System.Reflection.MemberInfo In group
         outputBlock.Text &= mi.Name & vbCrLf
      Next

      ' The output is similar to:

      ' Values that have the key 'Method':
      ' get_Chars
      ' get_Length
      ' IndexOf
      ' IndexOfAny
      ' LastIndexOf
      ' LastIndexOfAny
      ' Insert
      ' Replace
      ' Replace
      ' Remove
      ' Join
      ' Join
      ' Equals
      ' Equals
      ' Equals
      ' ...
