C# | Array.FindAll() Method

This method is used to retrieve all the elements that match the conditions defined by the specified predicate.

Syntax:

public static T[] FindAll (T[] array, Predicate match);

Here, T is the type of element of the array.

Parameters:

array: It is the one-dimensional, zero-based array to search.



match: It is the predicate that defines the conditions of the element to search for.

Return Value: This method return an array containing all elements that matches the conditions defined by the specified predicate if it is found. Otherwise, it returns an empty array.

Exception: This method throws ArgumentNullException if the array is null or match is null.

Below programs illustrate the use of Array.FindAll(T[], Predicate) Method:
