Queryable.SequenceEqual<TSource> Method (IQueryable<TSource>, IEnumerable<TSource>, IEqualityComparer<TSource>)

Determines whether two sequences are equal by using a specified IEqualityComparer<T> to compare elements.

Namespace:  System.Linq
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
<ExtensionAttribute> _
Public Shared Function SequenceEqual(Of TSource) ( _
    source1 As IQueryable(Of TSource), _
    source2 As IEnumerable(Of TSource), _
    comparer As IEqualityComparer(Of TSource) _
) As Boolean
public static bool SequenceEqual<TSource>(
    this IQueryable<TSource> source1,
    IEnumerable<TSource> source2,
    IEqualityComparer<TSource> comparer
)

Type Parameters

  • TSource
    The type of the elements of the input sequences.

Parameters

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the two source sequences are of equal length and their corresponding elements compare equal; otherwise, false.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IQueryable<TSource>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter.

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

source1 or source2 is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Remarks

The SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, IEnumerable<TSource>, IEqualityComparer<TSource>) method generates a MethodCallExpression that represents calling SequenceEqual<TSource>(IQueryable<TSource>, IEnumerable<TSource>, IEqualityComparer<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>, IEqualityComparer<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 by using comparer to compare elements.
