IOrderedQueryable Interface

Updated: September 2008

Represents the result of a sorting operation.

Namespace:  System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public interface IOrderedQueryable : IQueryable, 

The IOrderedQueryable interface is intended for implementation by query providers.

This interface represents the result of a sorting query that calls the method(s) OrderBy, OrderByDescending, ThenBy or ThenByDescending. When CreateQuery is called and passed an expression tree that represents a sorting query, the resulting IQueryable object must be of a type that implements IOrderedQueryable.

For more information about how to create your own LINQ provider, see Walkthrough: Creating an IQueryable LINQ Provider in the MSDN Library and LINQ: Building an IQueryable Provider on MSDN Blogs.
