Count the number of element present in the sequence in LINQ?

In LINQ, you can count the total number of elements present in the given sequence by using the Count Method. This method returns the total number of elements present in the given sequence.

This method can be overloaded in two different ways:

  1. Count<TSource>(): This method returns the total number of elements present in the given specified sequence. The return type of this method is System.Int32. This method gives ArgumentNullException if the source is null and OverflowException if the value of the source is large. It does not support query syntax in C#, but you can wrap the query into brackets() and use aggregation functions as shown in Example 1. It supports query syntax in VB.NET.

    Syntax:

    int Count<TSource>();
  2. Count<TSource>(Func<TSource, bool> predicate): This method is used to return the number of items which satisfy the given condition. The return type of this method is System.Int32. This method gives ArgumentNullException if the source or predicate is null and OverflowException if the value of the source is large.

    Syntax:



    int Count<TSource>(Func<TSource, bool> predicate);

    Note: This method with predicate parameter is not supported in VB.NET.

Example 1:

filter_none

using System.Linq;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    static public void Main()
    {
  
        // Data source
        int[] sequence = {6, 455, 50, 56, 102,
                          89, 9, 100, 67, 29};
  
        // Display the sequence
        Console.WriteLine("The sequence is: ");
  
        foreach(int s in sequence)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(s);
        }
  
        // Finding the total number of elements
        // present in the given sequence
        // Using Count function
        int result = sequence.Count();
        Console.WriteLine("Total number of Elements: {0}", result);
    }
}

Output:

The sequence is: 
6
455
50
56
102
89
9
100
67
29
Total number of Elements: 10
