Use the ToArray method to create an array from results of a LINQ query. Calling ToArray also forces immediate execution of the query. The following example uses the ToArray method to immediately evaluate the query and convert the sequence into an array.
|To run the code in this example, you need to create a new Telerik Data Access Domain Model based on the Northwind database.|
The following code is the LINQ example.
using ( EntitiesModel dbContext = new EntitiesModel() )
IQueryable<Product> products = from p in dbContext.Products
orderby p.ProductName descending
Product productsArray = products.ToArray();
foreach ( Product product in productsArray )
Console.WriteLine( product.ProductName );
Using dbContext As New EntitiesModel()
Dim products As IQueryable(Of Product) = From p In dbContext.Products
Order By p.ProductName Descending
Dim productsArray() As Product = products.ToArray()
For Each _product As Product In productsArray
