LINQ to Objects (Visual Basic)LINQ to Objects (Visual Basic)

术语“LINQ to Objects”指直接将 LINQ 查询与任何 IEnumerableIEnumerable<T> 集合一起使用,而不使用中间 LINQ 提供程序或 API,例如 LINQ to SQLLINQ to XMLThe term "LINQ to Objects" refers to the use of LINQ queries with any IEnumerable or IEnumerable<T> collection directly, without the use of an intermediate LINQ provider or API such as LINQ to SQL or LINQ to XML. 可以使用 LINQ 来查询任何可枚举的集合,例如 List<T>ArrayDictionary<TKey,TValue>You can use LINQ to query any enumerable collections such as List<T>, Array, or Dictionary<TKey,TValue>. 该集合可以是用户定义的集合,也可以是由 .NET Framework API 返回的集合。The collection may be user-defined or may be returned by a .NET Framework API.

从根本上说,“LINQ to Objects”表示一种新的处理集合的方法。In a basic sense, LINQ to Objects represents a new approach to collections. 采用旧方法,必须编写指定如何从集合检索数据的复杂的 For Each 循环。In the old way, you had to write complex For Each loops that specified how to retrieve data from a collection. 而采用 LINQ 方法,只需编写描述要检索的内容的声明性代码。In the LINQ approach, you write declarative code that describes what you want to retrieve.

此外,LINQ 查询与传统 For Each 循环相比具有三大优势:In addition, LINQ queries offer three main advantages over traditional For Each loops:

  1. 它们更简明、更易读,尤其在筛选多个条件时。They are more concise and readable, especially when filtering multiple conditions.

  2. 它们使用最少的应用程序代码提供强大的筛选、排序和分组功能。They provide powerful filtering, ordering, and grouping capabilities with a minimum of application code.

  3. 无需修改或只需做很小的修改即可将它们移植到其他数据源。They can be ported to other data sources with little or no modification.

通常,对数据执行的操作越复杂,就越能体会到 LINQ 相较于传统迭代技术的优势。In general, the more complex the operation you want to perform on the data, the more benefit you will realize by using LINQ instead of traditional iteration techniques.

本节的目的是使用一些精选示例来演示 LINQ 方法。The purpose of this section is to demonstrate the LINQ approach with some select examples. 并不打算详尽说明。It is not intended to be exhaustive.
