Sample text

The standard version We are going to implement a simple scenario: given a deck of 52 cards, we want to pick a random number of cards, and then take out all of the hearts. From this stack of hearts, we will discard the first two and take the next five cards (if possible), and order them by their face value for display. Resize(ref hearts, j); // check that we have at least 2 cards. FaceValue); } } [ 32 ] Chapter 3 Even if we didn't consider the CreateDeck() method, we had to do quite a few operations to produce the expected result (your values might be different as we are using random cards).

From now on (wherever possible) we'll provide the samples for both the syntaxes. [ 38 ] Chapter 3 Summary In this chapter you learned what LINQ is, what its benefits are, what a query looks like, and the two different syntaxes of LINQ. In the next chapter we are going to write your first LINQ query, and discover query operators that will let you manipulate data. [ 39 ] Discovering LINQ Query Operators In this chapter we will introduce you to the most common query operators, and see a bit more of LINQ to objects.

We will see anonymous types in Chapter 5, Databases and Relational Data. For the rest of this book, and unless the type of the variable needs to be explicitly written (for pedagogical reasons for example), I will prefer var. Feel free to experiment without var if you don't feel comfortable or prefer explicit notation. The OfType() query operator OfType() will filter your collection based on the type you provide. This can prove extremely useful when you're dealing with a base type object collection and need to extract a specific subtype (or if you are dealing with untyped collections).
