Represents a particular manner of splitting an orderable data source into multiple partitions.
Assemblies: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
System.Collections.Concurrent (in System.Collections.Concurrent.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|KeysNormalized||Gets whether order keys are normalized.|
|KeysOrderedAcrossPartitions||Gets whether elements in an earlier partition always come before elements in a later partition.|
|KeysOrderedInEachPartition||Gets whether elements in each partition are yielded in the order of increasing keys.|
|SupportsDynamicPartitions||Gets whether additional partitions can be created dynamically. (Inherited from Partitioner(TSource).)|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetDynamicPartitions||Creates an object that can partition the underlying collection into a variable number of partitions. (Overrides Partitioner(TSource).GetDynamicPartitions().)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetOrderableDynamicPartitions||Creates an object that can partition the underlying collection into a variable number of partitions.|
|GetOrderablePartitions||Partitions the underlying collection into the specified number of orderable partitions.|
|GetPartitions||Partitions the underlying collection into the given number of ordered partitions. (Overrides Partitioner(TSource).GetPartitions(Int32).)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The implementation of the derived class is responsible for ordering the elements into key-value pairs in whatever manner is appropriate. For more information, see Custom Partitioners for PLINQ and TPL.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: Synchronization | ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser).
