Queryable.Any<'TSource> Method (IQueryable<'TSource>, Expression<Func<'TSource, Boolean>>)

 

Determines whether any element of a sequence satisfies a condition.

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

static member Any<'TSource> : 
        source:IQueryable<'TSource> *
        predicate:Expression<Func<'TSource, bool>> -> bool

Parameters

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

A sequence whose elements to test for a condition.

predicate
Type: System.Linq.Expressions.Expression<Func<'TSource, Boolean>>

A function to test each element for a condition.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if any elements in the source sequence pass the test in the specified predicate; otherwise, false.

Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of source.

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source or predicate is null.

This method has at least one parameter of type Expression<'TDelegate> whose type argument is one of the Func<'T, 'TResult> types. For these parameters, you can pass in a lambda expression and it will be compiled to an Expression<'TDelegate>.

The Any<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Expression<Func<'TSource, Boolean>>) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling Any<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Expression<Func<'TSource, Boolean>>) 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 source parameter.

The query behavior that occurs as a result of executing an expression tree that represents calling Any<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Expression<Func<'TSource, Boolean>>) depends on the implementation of the type of the source parameter. The expected behavior is that it determines if any of the elements of source satisfy the condition specified by predicate.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Any<'TSource>(IQueryable<'TSource>, Expression<Func<'TSource, Boolean>>) to determine whether any element in a sequence satisfies a condition.
