Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)


Public Shared Function Create(Of T1, T2) ( _
    item1 As T1, _
    item2 As T2 _
) As Tuple(Of T1, T2)
public static Tuple<T1, T2> Create<T1, T2>(
    T1 item1,
    T2 item2

Type Parameters

  • T1
    The type of the first component of the tuple.
  • T2
    The type of the second component of the tuple.


  • item1
    Type: T1
    The value of the first component of the tuple.
  • item2
    Type: T2
    The value of the second component of the tuple.

Return Value

Type: System.Tuple<T1, T2>
A 2-tuple whose value is (item1, item2).


Create is a helper method that you can call to instantiate a 2-tuple object without having to explicitly specify the types of its components. The following example uses the Create method to instantiate a 2-tuple.

Dim tuple2 = Tuple.Create("New York", 32.68)
var tuple2 = Tuple.Create("New York", 32.68);

This code is equivalent to the following call to the Tuple<T1, T2> class constructor.

Dim tuple2 = New Tuple(Of String, Double)("New York", 32.68)
var tuple2 = new Tuple<string, double>("New York", 32.68);
