Queryable.GroupBy(Of TSource, TKey) Method (IQueryable(Of TSource), Expression(Of Func(Of TSource, TKey)), IEqualityComparer(Of TKey))
Groups the elements of a sequence according to a specified key selector function and compares the keys by using a specified comparer.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
<ExtensionAttribute> Public Shared Function GroupBy(Of TSource, TKey) ( source As IQueryable(Of TSource), keySelector As Expression(Of Func(Of TSource, TKey)), comparer As IEqualityComparer(Of TKey) ) As IQueryable(Of IGrouping(Of TKey, TSource))
System.Linq.Expressions.Expression(Of Func(Of , ))
A function to extract the key for each element.
Return ValueType: System.Linq.IQueryable(Of IGrouping(Of , ))
An IQueryable<IGrouping<TKey, TSource>> in C# or IQueryable(Of IGrouping(Of TKey, TSource)) in Visual Basic where each IGrouping(Of TKey, TElement) contains a sequence of objects and a key.
The type of the elements of source.
The type of the key returned by the function represented in keySelector.
This method has at least one parameter of type Expression(Of TDelegate) whose type argument is one of the Func(Of T, TResult) types. For these parameters, you can pass in a lambda expression and it will be compiled to an Expression(Of TDelegate).
The MethodCallExpression that represents calling itself as a constructed generic method. It then passes the MethodCallExpression to the CreateQuery(Of TElement)(Expression) method of the IQueryProvider represented by the Provider property of the source parameter.method generates a
The query behavior that occurs as a result of executing an expression tree that represents callingdepends on the implementation of the type of the source parameter. The expected behavior is that it groups the elements of source by a key value. The key value is obtained by invoking keySelector on each element, and key values are compared by using comparer.
