Enumerable.Sum<'TSource> Method (IEnumerable<'TSource>, Func<'TSource, Decimal>)
Computes the sum of the sequence of Decimal values that are obtained by invoking a transform function on each element of the input sequence.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
static member Sum<'TSource> : source:IEnumerable<'TSource> * selector:Func<'TSource, decimal> -> decimal
A sequence of values that are used to calculate a sum.
Return ValueType: System.Decimal
The sum of the projected values.
The type of the elements of source.
This method returns zero if source contains no elements.
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 Decimal.
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.
