ParallelEnumerable.OrderBy<TSource, TKey> Method (ParallelQuery<TSource>, Func<TSource, TKey>)

Sorts in parallel the elements of a sequence in ascending order according to a key.

Namespace:  System.Linq
Assemblies:   System.Linq.Parallel (in System.Linq.Parallel.dll)
  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public static OrderedParallelQuery<TSource> OrderBy<TSource, TKey>(
	this ParallelQuery<TSource> source,
	Func<TSource, TKey> keySelector
)

Type Parameters

TSource

The type of elements of source.

TKey

The type of the key returned by keySelector.

Parameters

source
Type: System.Linq.ParallelQuery<TSource>

A sequence of values to order.

keySelector
Type: System.Func<TSource, TKey>

A function to extract a key from an element.

Return Value

Type: System.Linq.OrderedParallelQuery<TSource>
An OrderedParallelQuery{TSource} whose elements are sorted according to a key.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type ParallelQuery<TSource>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source or keySelector is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

OperationCanceledException

The query was canceled with the token passed in through WithCancellation.

AggregateException

One or more exceptions occurred during the evaluation of the query.

In contrast to the sequential implementation, this is not a stable sort. To achieve a stable sort, change a query of the form: var ordered = source.Select((e,i) => new { E=e, I=i }).OrderBy((v) => v.e).ThenBy(v => v.i).Select((v) => v.e);
