.NET 4.5 Extension Methods on IQueryable

by Shawn R. McLean | May 2013 | .NET Enterprise Articles

In this article by Shawn R. McLean, author of Instant .NET 4.5 Extension Methods How-to , we learn about the extension methods on IQueryable. IQueryable is used to operate mainly on databases. IQueryable<T>are an extension from IEnumerable<T>, hence, we can call all extensions and methods of IEnumerable<T>. A query using IQueryable can be built up on over time, before it hits the database. The query is executed once you execute an eager function such as ToList(), looping the data or attempting to use the values. IQueryable is used by providers such as LINQ to entities or LINQ to SQL.
