Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use Aggregate<TSource,TAccumulate,TResult>(IQueryable<TSource>, TAccumulate, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TSource,TAccumulate>>, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TResult>>) to apply an accumulator function and a result selector.

string[] fruits = { "apple", "mango", "orange", "passionfruit", "grape" };

// Determine whether any string in the array is longer than "banana".
string longestName =
    fruits.AsQueryable().Aggregate(
    "banana",
    (longest, next) => next.Length > longest.Length ? next : longest,
    // Return the final result as an uppercase string.
    fruit => fruit.ToUpper()
    );

Console.WriteLine(
    "The fruit with the longest name is {0}.",
    longestName);

// This code produces the following output:
//
// The fruit with the longest name is PASSIONFRUIT. 

Dim fruits() As String = {"apple", "mango", "orange", "passionfruit", "grape"}

' Determine whether any string in the array is longer than "banana".
Dim longestName As String = _
    fruits.AsQueryable().Aggregate( _
    "banana", _
    Function(ByVal longest, ByVal fruit) IIf(fruit.Length > longest.Length, fruit, longest), _
    Function(ByVal fruit) fruit.ToUpper() _
)

MsgBox(String.Format( _
    "The fruit with the longest name is {0}.", longestName) _
)

' This code produces the following output:
'
' The fruit with the longest name is PASSIONFRUIT. 

Remarks

This method has at least one parameter of type Expression<TDelegate> whose type argument is one of the Func<T,TResult> types. For these parameters, you can pass in a lambda expression and it will be compiled to an Expression<TDelegate>.

The Aggregate<TSource,TAccumulate,TResult>(IQueryable<TSource>, TAccumulate, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TSource,TAccumulate>>, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TResult>>) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling Aggregate<TSource,TAccumulate,TResult>(IQueryable<TSource>, TAccumulate, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TSource,TAccumulate>>, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TResult>>) itself as a constructed generic method. It then passes the MethodCallExpression to the Execute<TResult>(Expression) method of the IQueryProvider represented by the Provider property of the source parameter.

The query behavior that occurs as a result of executing an expression tree that represents calling Aggregate<TSource,TAccumulate,TResult>(IQueryable<TSource>, TAccumulate, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TSource,TAccumulate>>, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TResult>>) depends on the implementation of the type of the source parameter. The expected behavior is that the specified function, func, is applied to each value in the source sequence and the accumulated value is returned. The seed parameter is used as the seed value for the accumulated value, which corresponds to the first parameter in func. The final accumulated value is passed to selector to obtain the result value.

To simplify common aggregation operations, the set of standard query operators also includes two counting methods, Count and LongCount, and four numeric aggregation methods, namely Max, Min, Sum, and Average.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use Aggregate<TSource,TAccumulate>(IQueryable<TSource>, TAccumulate, Expression<Func<TAccumulate,TSource,TAccumulate>>) to apply an accumulator function when a seed value is provided to the function.

int[] ints = { 4, 8, 8, 3, 9, 0, 7, 8, 2 };

// Count the even numbers in the array, using a seed value of 0.
int numEven =
    ints.AsQueryable().Aggregate(
    0,
    (total, next) => next % 2 == 0 ? total + 1 : total
    );

Console.WriteLine("The number of even integers is: {0}", numEven);

// This code produces the following output:
//
// The number of even integers is: 6 

Dim ints() As Integer = {4, 8, 8, 3, 9, 0, 7, 8, 2}

' Count the even numbers in the array, using a seed value of 0.
Dim numEven As Integer = _
