Type Parameters

TSource

The type of the elements of the input sequences.

Parameters

source1
IQueryable<TSource>

An IQueryable<T> whose elements to compare to those of source2.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to use SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, IEnumerable<TSource>) to determine whether two sequences are equal. In this example the sequences are equal.

class Pet
{
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public int Age { get; set; }
}

public static void SequenceEqualEx1()
{
    Pet pet1 = new Pet { Name = "Turbo", Age = 2 };
    Pet pet2 = new Pet { Name = "Peanut", Age = 8 };

    // Create two lists of pets.
    List<Pet> pets1 = new List<Pet> { pet1, pet2 };
    List<Pet> pets2 = new List<Pet> { pet1, pet2 };

    // Determine if the lists are equal.
    bool equal = pets1.AsQueryable().SequenceEqual(pets2);

    Console.WriteLine(
        "The lists {0} equal.",
        equal ? "are" : "are not");
}

/*
    This code produces the following output:

    The lists are equal.
*/

Class Pet
    Public Name As String
    Public Age As Integer
End Class

Shared Sub SequenceEqualEx1()
    Dim pet1 As New Pet With {.Name = "Turbo", .Age = 2}
    Dim pet2 As New Pet With {.Name = "Peanut", .Age = 8}

    ' Create two lists of pets.
    Dim pets1 As New List(Of Pet)(New Pet() {pet1, pet2})
    Dim pets2 As New List(Of Pet)(New Pet() {pet1, pet2})

    ' Determine if the lists are equal.
    Dim equal As Boolean = pets1.AsQueryable().SequenceEqual(pets2)

    ' Display the output.
    Dim text As String = IIf(equal, "are", "are not")
    MsgBox("The lists " & text & " equal.")
End Sub

'This code produces the following output:

'The lists are equal.

The following code example compares two sequences that are not equal.

class Pet
{
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public int Age { get; set; }
}

public static void SequenceEqualEx2()
{
    Pet pet1 = new Pet() { Name = "Turbo", Age = 2 };
    Pet pet2 = new Pet() { Name = "Peanut", Age = 8 };

    // Create two lists of pets.
    List<Pet> pets1 = new List<Pet> { pet1, pet2 };
    List<Pet> pets2 = new List<Pet> { 
        new Pet { Name = "Turbo", Age = 2 },
        new Pet { Name = "Peanut", Age = 8 } 
    };

    // Determine if the lists are equal.
    bool equal = pets1.AsQueryable().SequenceEqual(pets2);

    Console.WriteLine("The lists {0} equal.", equal ? "are" : "are NOT");
}

/*
    This code produces the following output:

    The lists are NOT equal.
*/

Class Pet
    Public Name As String
    Public Age As Integer
End Class

Shared Sub SequenceEqualEx2()
    Dim pet1 As New Pet With {.Name = "Turbo", .Age = 2}
    Dim pet2 As New Pet With {.Name = "Peanut", .Age = 8}

    ' Create two lists of pets.
    Dim pets1 As New List(Of Pet)()
    pets1.Add(pet1)
    pets1.Add(pet2)

    Dim pets2 As New List(Of Pet)()
    pets2.Add(New Pet With {.Name = "Turbo", .Age = 2})
    pets2.Add(New Pet With {.Name = "Peanut", .Age = 8})

    ' Determine if the lists are equal.
    Dim equal As Boolean = pets1.AsQueryable().SequenceEqual(pets2)

    ' Display the output.
    Dim text As String = IIf(equal, "are", "are not")
    MsgBox("The lists " & text & " equal.")
End Sub

' This code produces the following output:

' The lists are not equal.

Remarks

The SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, IEnumerable<TSource>) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, IEnumerable<TSource>) 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 source1 parameter.

The query behavior that occurs as a result of executing an expression tree that represents calling SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, IEnumerable<TSource>) depends on the implementation of the type of the source1 parameter. The expected behavior is that it determines if the two source sequences are equal.
