Queryable.Skip<'TSource> Method (IQueryable<'TSource>, Int32)

 

Bypasses a specified number of elements in a sequence and then returns the remaining elements.

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

static member Skip<'TSource> : 
        source:IQueryable<'TSource> *
        count:int -> IQueryable<'TSource>

Parameters

source
Type: System.Linq.IQueryable<'TSource>

An IQueryable<'T> to return elements from.

count
Type: System.Int32

The number of elements to skip before returning the remaining elements.

Return Value

Type: System.Linq.IQueryable<'TSource>

An IQueryable<'T> that contains elements that occur after the specified index in the input sequence.

Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of source.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

The Skip<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Int32) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling Skip<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Int32) itself as a constructed generic method. It then passes the MethodCallExpression to the CreateQuery(Expression) method of the IQueryProvider represented by the Provider property of the source parameter.

The query behavior that occurs as a result of executing an expression tree that represents calling Skip<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Int32) depends on the implementation of the type of the source parameter. The expected behavior is that it skips the first count elements in source and returns the remaining elements.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Skip<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Int32) to skip a specified number of elements in a sorted array and return the remaining elements.
