Enumerable::Sum<TSource> Method (IEnumerable<TSource>^, Func<TSource, Double>^)


Computes the sum of the sequence of Double values that are obtained by invoking a transform function on each element of the input sequence.

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

generic<typename TSource>
static double Sum(
	IEnumerable<TSource>^ source,
	Func<TSource, double>^ selector


Type: System.Collections.Generic::IEnumerable<TSource>^

A sequence of values that are used to calculate a sum.

Type: System::Func<TSourceDouble>^

A transform function to apply to each element.

Return Value

Type: System::Double

The sum of the projected values.

Type Parameters


The type of the elements of source.

Exception Condition

source or selector is null.

This method returns zero if source contains no elements.

You can apply this method to a sequence of arbitrary values if you provide a function, selector, that projects the members of source into a numeric type, specifically Double.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Sum() clause translates to an invocation of Sum.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Sum<TSource>(IEnumerable<TSource>^, Func<TSource, Double>^) to sum the projected values of a sequence.
