Tuple<T1,T2,T3,T4>.Item2 Property

Definition

Gets the value of the current Tuple<T1,T2,T3,T4> object's second component.

public:
 property T2 Item2 { T2 get(); };
public T2 Item2 { get; }
member this.Item2 : 'T2
Public ReadOnly Property Item2 As T2

Property Value

T2

The value of the current Tuple<T1,T2,T3,T4> object's second component.

Examples

The following example defines an array of Tuple<T1,T2,T3,T4> objects whose components contain the name of a city, a month of the year, and the average high and low temperatures for that month. It then retrieves and displays the value of each component.

using System;
using System.Globalization;

Remarks

You can dynamically determine the type of the Item2 component in one of two ways:

  • By calling the GetType method on the value that is returned by the Item2 property.

  • By retrieving the Type object that represents the Tuple<T1,T2,T3,T4> object, and retrieving the second element from the array that is returned by its Type.GetGenericArguments method.
