	array As T(), _
	action As Action(Of T) _

Type Parameters


The type of the elements of the array.

The Action(Of T) is a delegate to a method that performs an action on the object passed to it. The elements of array are individually passed to the Action(Of T).

This method is an O(n) operation, where n is the Length of array.

The following example shows how to use ForEach(Of T) to display the squares of each element in an integer array.

Imports System

Public Class SamplesArray
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' create a three element array of integers 
        Dim intArray() As Integer = New Integer() {2, 3, 4}

        ' set a delegate for the ShowSquares method 
        Dim action As New Action(Of Integer)(AddressOf ShowSquares)

        Array.ForEach(intArray, action)
    End Sub 

    Private Shared Sub ShowSquares(val As Integer)
        Console.WriteLine("{0:d} squared = {1:d}", val, val*val)
    End Sub 
End Class 

' This code produces the following output: 

' 2 squared = 4 
' 3 squared = 9 
' 4 squared = 16
