MoreEnumerableSliceT Method

Extracts count elements from a sequence at a particular zero-based starting index

Namespace:  MoreLinq
Assembly:  MoreLinq (in MoreLinq.dll) Version: 2.4.0
public static IEnumerable<T> Slice<T>(
	this IEnumerable<T> sequence,
	int startIndex,
	int count


Type: System.Collections.GenericIEnumerableT
The sequence from which to extract elements
Type: SystemInt32
The zero-based index at which to begin slicing
Type: SystemInt32
The number of items to slice out of the index

Type Parameters

The type of the elements in the source sequence

Return Value

Type: IEnumerableT
A new sequence containing any elements sliced out from the source sequence

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerableT. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).
If the starting position or count specified result in slice extending past the end of the sequence, it will return all elements up to that point. There is no guarantee that the resulting sequence will contain the number of elements requested - it may have anywhere from 0 to count.
This method is implemented in an optimized manner for any sequence implementing IList{T}.
The result of Slice() is identical to: sequence.Skip(startIndex).Take(count)
