Tuple<T1, T2, T3, T4>.Item1 Property

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

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

Syntax

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Item1 As T1
public T1 Item1 { get; }

Property Value

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

Remarks

You can dynamically determine the type of the Item1 component in one of two ways:

  • By calling the GetType method on the value that is returned by the Item1 property.

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

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.
