Partitioner<TSource>.GetDynamicPartitions Method

Creates an object that can partition the underlying collection into a variable number of partitions.

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

public virtual IEnumerable<TSource> GetDynamicPartitions()

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<TSource>
An object that can create partitions over the underlying data source.


Dynamic partitioning is not supported by the base class. You must implement it in a derived class.

The returned object implements the IEnumerable<TSource> interface. Calling GetEnumerator on the object creates another partition over the sequence.

The GetDynamicPartitions method is only supported if the SupportsDynamicPartitions property returns true. For more information, see Custom Partitioners for PLINQ and TPL.
