Queryable.GroupBy(Of TSource, TKey, TResult) Method (IQueryable(Of TSource), Expression(Of Func(Of TSource, TKey)), Expression(Of Func(Of TKey, IEnumerable(Of TSource), TResult)), IEqualityComparer(Of TKey))
Groups the elements of a sequence according to a specified key selector function and creates a result value from each group and its key. Keys are compared by using a specified comparer.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
<ExtensionAttribute> Public Shared Function GroupBy(Of TSource, TKey, TResult) ( source As IQueryable(Of TSource), keySelector As Expression(Of Func(Of TSource, TKey)), resultSelector As Expression(Of Func(Of TKey, IEnumerable(Of TSource), TResult)), comparer As IEqualityComparer(Of TKey) ) As IQueryable(Of TResult)
System.Linq.Expressions.Expression(Of Func(Of , ))
A function to extract the key for each element.
System.Linq.Expressions.Expression(Of Func(Of , IEnumerable(Of ), ))
A function to create a result value from each group.
Return ValueType: System.Linq.IQueryable(Of )
An T:System.Linq.IQueryable`1 that has a type argument of TResult and where each element represents a projection over a group and its key.
The type of the elements of source.
The type of the key returned by the function represented in keySelector.
The type of the result value returned by resultSelector.
source or keySelector or resultSelector or comparer is null.
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 key values that are obtained by invoking keySelector on each element. The comparer parameter is used to compare keys and the resultSelector parameter is used to obtain a result value from each group and its key.
