Example text

Any() doesn't have any similar query syntax and is always used as a method. The All() query operator All() checks that every item of the collection matches the condition. You always need to provide a condition. "); [ 44 ] Chapter 4 collection is still the same string array with the "quick brown fox" phrase. As our smallest word has a length of three letters, this will return true, as shown in the following screenshot: All() will stop as soon as an item does not match the condition. All() doesn't have any similar query syntax and is always used as a method.

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).

You could also (as we saw in the previous chapter) use a named function rather than a lambda expression. Length == 5; } Running the query will yield result as shown in the following screenshot: It's also worth noting that Any() will stop enumerating as soon as an item matching the condition is found. Any() doesn't have any similar query syntax and is always used as a method. The All() query operator All() checks that every item of the collection matches the condition.
