Sum(TSource) Method (IEnumerable(TSource), Func(TSource, Nullable(Double)))

Enumerable::Sum<TSource> Method (IEnumerable<TSource>^, Func<TSource, Nullable<Double>>^)


Computes the sum of the sequence of nullable Double values that are obtained by invoking a transform function on each element of the input sequence.

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

generic<typename TSource>
static Nullable<double> Sum(
	IEnumerable<TSource>^ source,
	Func<TSource, Nullable<double>>^ selector


Type: System.Collections.Generic::IEnumerable<TSource>^

A sequence of values that are used to calculate a sum.

Type: System::Func<TSource, Nullable<Double>>^

A transform function to apply to each element.

Return Value

Type: System::Nullable<Double>

The sum of the projected values.

Type Parameters


The type of the elements of source.

Exception Condition

source or selector is null.

This method returns zero if source contains no elements.

The result does not include values that are null.

You can apply this method to a sequence of arbitrary values if you provide a function, selector, that projects the members of source into a numeric type, specifically Nullable<Double> in C# or Nullable(Of Double) in Visual Basic.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Sum() clause translates to an invocation of Sum.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Sum<TSource>(IEnumerable<TSource>^, Func<TSource, Double>^) to sum the projected values of a sequence.


This code example uses an overload of this overloaded method that is different from the specific overload that this topic describes. To extend the example to this topic, change the body of the selector function.
