## Using Quantifiers in LINQ

In this article, I will explain how to use Quantifiers in LINQ. Basically quantifiers are operators that return a boolean value. Further, these quantifier operators return a value that indicates whether all elements in a set satisfy a particular condition or only few. Also, whether a specific element is available in the set. Accordingly, the […]

## Performing Set Operations in LINQ

In this article, I will explain how to perform Set Operations in LINQ. Basically, Language Integrated Query (LINQ) has several query methods for performing set operations such as union, intersection, and set difference. Query Methods for Performing Set Operations in LINQ The following section provides a description of query methods available in LINQ. In fact, […]

## Recursive Binary Search in C#

Basically, binary search is an efficient way to search a given value from a list of values. The following code example shows Recursive Binary Search in C#. So, let us assume that we have a linear data structure such as an array. Our aim is to find a particular target value in the array. As […]

## Generic Binary Search in C#

Today I will explain the Generic Binary Search in C#. Basically, Binary Search is a technique that is used to find a target value from a list of values. In general, Binary Search takes a list of values as input and searches for a target value by dividing the list into two equal halves in […]

## Grouping Queries in LINQ

To begin with, this post aims to make you understand Grouping Queries in LINQ. Basically, we need to group data whenever the data elements exhibit a certain common feature. In other words, some of the members of a sequence share a specific value for an attribute while other members may have another value for that […]

## Understanding the Quantifiers in LINQ

In this post on Understanding the Quantifiers in LINQ, I will explain the three quantifier operators – Any, All, and Contains. Basically, we use quantifiers when we need to determine how many elements in a sequence satisfy a particular codition. Nevertheless, we encounter situations where we need to seek whether all members of the sequence […]

## Deferred Query Execution and Immediate Query Execution in LINQ

In this post, I will explain Deferred Query Execution and Immediate Query Execution in LINQ. Basically, a query formulated in LINQ may exhibit one of the two kinds of behaviors during execution. These two kinds of behaviors are called deferred query execution and immediate query execution. In the case of deferred query execution, the query […]

## Join Operation using LINQ

This article will demonstrate the Join Operation using LINQ. Whenever you want to write an SQL-like join query using LINQ, you can use the LINQ join operator. In order to perform the join operation on two or more data sources, it is required that those data sources must have some common value. Significantly, all the […]

## Examples of Query Operations using LINQ in C#

In this post, I will demonstrate several Examples of Query Operations using LINQ in C#. In order to get an overview of LINQ, you can read this article on Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) in C#. Examples of Query Operations using LINQ in C# Since LINQ helps us in creating queries that work with various kinds of […]

## Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) in C#

Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) in C# allows us to formulate the queries in C# language itself rather than using the syntax of SQL (Structured Query Language). The native data querying capabilities to the .NET languages have become part of the .NET Framework 3.5 with Visual Studio 2008 in the form of Language-Integrated Query (LINQ). With LINQ, […]
