Tuple<T1,T2,T3>.Item3 Tuple<T1,T2,T3>.Item3 Tuple<T1,T2,T3>.Item3 Tuple<T1,T2,T3>.Item3 Property

Definition

Gets the value of the current Tuple<T1,T2,T3> object's third component.

public:
 property T3 Item3 { T3 get(); };
public T3 Item3 { get; }
member this.Item3 : 'T3
Public ReadOnly Property Item3 As T3

Property Value

T3 T3 T3 T3

The value of the current Tuple<T1,T2,T3> object's third component.

Examples

The following example defines an array of Tuple<T1,T2,T3> objects that contain the names of students, their average test scores, and the number of tests taken. The array is passed to the ComputeStatistics method, which calculates the mean score, standard deviation, and number of cases from which the statistics are calculated. These values are stored in the Tuple<T1,T2,T3> object that is returned by the ComputeStatistics method. The Item3 property contains the standard deviation.

Remarks

You can dynamically determine the type of the Item3 component in one of two ways:

  • By calling the GetType method on the value returned by the Item3 property.

  • By retrieving the Type object that represents the Tuple<T1,T2,T3> object, and retrieving the third element from the array that is returned by its Type.GetGenericArguments method.
