Definition

Overloads

MinBy<TSource,TKey>(IEnumerable<TSource>, Func<TSource,TKey>, IComparer<TKey>)

Returns the minimum value in a generic sequence according to a specified key selector function.

MinBy<TSource,TKey>(IEnumerable<TSource>, Func<TSource,TKey>)

Returns the minimum value in a generic sequence according to a specified key selector function.

MinBy<TSource,TKey>(IEnumerable<TSource>, Func<TSource,TKey>, IComparer<TKey>)

Returns the minimum value in a generic sequence according to a specified key selector function.

public:
generic <typename TSource, typename TKey>
[System::Runtime::CompilerServices::Extension]
 static TSource MinBy(System::Collections::Generic::IEnumerable<TSource> ^ source, Func<TSource, TKey> ^ keySelector, System::Collections::Generic::IComparer<TKey> ^ comparer);

static member MinBy : seq<'Source> * Func<'Source, 'Key> * System.Collections.Generic.IComparer<'Key> -> 'Source
<Extension()>
Public Function MinBy(Of TSource, TKey) (source As IEnumerable(Of TSource), keySelector As Func(Of TSource, TKey), comparer As IComparer(Of TKey)) As TSource

Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of source.

TKey

The type of key to compare elements by.

Parameters

source
IEnumerable<TSource>

A sequence of values to determine the minimum value of.

keySelector
Func<TSource,TKey>

A function to extract the key for each element.

comparer
IComparer<TKey>

The IComparer<T> to compare keys.

Returns

TSource

The value with the minimum key in the sequence.

Exceptions

source is null.

No key extracted from source implements the IComparable or IComparable<T> interface.

Remarks

If <typeparamref name="TKey> is a reference type and the source sequence is empty or contains only values that are null, this method returns null.
