Query Expression Syntax Examples: Partitioning (LINQ to DataSet)

The examples in this topic demonstrate how to use the Skip<TSource> and Take<TSource> methods to query a DataSet using the query expression syntax.

The FillDataSet method used in these examples is specified in Loading Data Into a DataSet.

The examples in this topic use the Contact, Address, Product, SalesOrderHeader, and SalesOrderDetail tables in the AdventureWorks sample database.

The examples in this topic use the following using/Imports statements:

using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Linq.Expressions;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Data.Common;
using System.Globalization;

For more information, see How to: Create a LINQ to DataSet Project In Visual Studio.

This example uses the Skip<TSource> method to get all but the first two addresses in Seattle.

// Fill the DataSet.
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
ds.Locale = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;
FillDataSet(ds);

DataTable addresses = ds.Tables["Address"];
DataTable orders = ds.Tables["SalesOrderHeader"];

var query = (
    from address in addresses.AsEnumerable()
    from order in orders.AsEnumerable()
    where address.Field<int>("AddressID") == order.Field<int>("BillToAddressID")
         && address.Field<string>("City") == "Seattle" 
    select new
    {
        City = address.Field<string>("City"),
        OrderID = order.Field<int>("SalesOrderID"),
        OrderDate = order.Field<DateTime>("OrderDate")
    }).Skip(2);

Console.WriteLine("All but first 2 orders in Seattle:");
foreach (var order in query)
{
    Console.WriteLine("City: {0} Order ID: {1} Total Due: {2:d}",
        order.City, order.OrderID, order.OrderDate);
}

This example uses the Take<TSource> method to get the first three addresses in Seattle.

// Fill the DataSet.
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
ds.Locale = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;
FillDataSet(ds);

DataTable addresses = ds.Tables["Address"];
DataTable orders = ds.Tables["SalesOrderHeader"];

var query = (
    from address in addresses.AsEnumerable()
    from order in orders.AsEnumerable()
    where address.Field<int>("AddressID") == order.Field<int>("BillToAddressID")
         && address.Field<string>("City") == "Seattle" 
    select new
    {
        City = address.Field<string>("City"),
        OrderID = order.Field<int>("SalesOrderID"),
        OrderDate = order.Field<DateTime>("OrderDate")
    }).Take(3);

Console.WriteLine("First 3 orders in Seattle:");
foreach (var order in query)
{
    Console.WriteLine("City: {0} Order ID: {1} Total Due: {2:d}",
        order.City, order.OrderID, order.OrderDate);
}
