Tuple<T1, T2> Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the Tuple<T1, T2> class.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public Tuple(
	T1 item1,
	T2 item2


Type: T1
The value of the tuple's first component.
Type: T2
The value of the tuple's second component.

You can also use the static Tuple.Create<T1, T2>(T1, T2) method to instantiate a 2-tuple object without having to explicitly specify the types of its components. The following example uses the Tuple.Create<T1, T2>(T1, T2) method to instantiate a 2-tuple whose components are of type String and Double.

var tuple2 = Tuple.Create("New York", 32.68);

This is equivalent to the following call to the Tuple<T1, T2> class constructor.

var tuple2 = new Tuple<string, double>("New York", 32.68);
