VS 2010 Struggling With OrderBy Lambda Expression?

Aug 24, 2011

I'm getting my feet wet with Lambda expressions and it's rather overwhelming.I have a UserPrincipal object called SelectedUser. I wish to get a sorted list of the user's groups This is what I have so far but when I include that code my application's form flashes a few times and closes! Also, what is the significance of the "r" in the "Return From r" statement?

Dim SortedGroups As PrincipalSearchResult(Of Principal) = GetSortedGroups(Me.SelectedUser.GetGroups())
Private Function GetSortedGroups(ByVal psp As PrincipalSearchResult(Of Principal)) As PrincipalSearchResult(Of Principal)
Return From r In psp.OrderBy(Function(t) t.Name)
End Function

C# - Lambda Expression: CS To .Net?

Aug 24, 2011

I am dumb founded at this statement....maybe its just too many hours/days of doing C# to VB.Net conversion but i am drawing a blank on this conversion.

List<string> sColors = new List<string>(this.CustomPaletteValues.Split(','));
try {
List<Color> colors = sColors.ConvertAll<Color>(s => (Color)(new ColorConverter().ConvertFromString(s)));

What i have so far:

Dim colors As List(Of Color) = sColors.ConvertAll(Of Color)(....)

As you can see its the content of the lambda that i am hitting a brick wall with.

.net - Convert C# Lambda Expression To VB?

Mar 23, 2012

In looking at Fuzzy Date Time Picker Control in C# .NET? Piotr Czaapla's answer to that question is exactly what I need. unfortunately, I'm a VB.NET guy and I'm not that familiar with lambda expresions, so my attempts to convert the code have resulted in hours of misplaced parenthesis and banging my head with a brick.

Any chance some bi-lingual wizard could convert the C# code to VB.net for me?

Currently, I have code similar to this:

I would like to create a Lamdba expression something like the following (this doesn't work):

Dim xCol As Func(Of DataRow, String, Type, Object, Object) = _
Function(dr, x, t, dflt) _
If(dr.Table.Columns.Contains(x), dr.field(Of t)(x), dflt)

So that I can say something like:

xxx, _
xCol(dr, "EnterpriseID", GetType(System.Integer), -1), _

Trick Lambda Expression In VB

Delegate Not Working Instead Of Lambda Expression

May 14, 2010

I am having a generic ListOf-collection holding the self-created User-object, I can filter for users by using lambda-expression like this:
Dim reviewers As List(Of User) = users.Where(Function(u) u.DvRoleID = 2).ToList

Instead of using the lambda expression I can also write the function and call it as argument like this:
Public Function GetReviewer1(ByVal u As User) As Boolean
If u.DvRoleID = 2 Then
Return True
[Code] .....

Now the question: why can't I create a delegate having the same signature as the GetReviewer1 function and use the delegate as argument inside the where-clause like this:
Delegate Function Criteria(ByVal u As User) As Boolean
Public Function GetReviewer1(ByVal u As User) As Boolean
If u.DvRoleID = 2 Then
[Code] .....
The compiler does not accept the crit delegate as argument.

Use A Function Both Directly And As A Lambda Expression?

Apr 24, 2012

Should I be concerned about the performance of the Compile method here?[code]...

The reason I want the lambda expression is because I want that function to be able to get all the way through LINQ-to-SQL to be converted to SQL. The reason I want the direct version is because I have other code that I want to validate individual serial numbers before submitting changes. And I fear that GetValidSerialNumbers.Contains(serialNumber) will execute a more-complex-than-necesssary query.

'ByRef' Parameter '<parametername>' Cannot Be Used In A Lambda Expression?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm using SharpZipLib to compress files. The library is wrapped in a plugin interface, in a separate DLL. I pass the plugin dll a ByRef parameter to keep track of the compression progress.SharpZipLib, while compressing, will periodically call a delegate sub passed when launching the compression. I can't figure out how to update the ByRef parameter when the delegate is called. If I try to assign the ByRef variable in the body of a lamba expression, I get a 'ByRef' parameter '<parametername>' cannot be used in a lambda expression error.

.net - "Using The Iteration Variable In A Lambda Expression May Have Unexpected Results"

Dim numbers2 As New List(Of Int32)({3, 4, 5})
For Each n1 In numbers1
' no warning '
Dim contains = numbers2.Contains(n1)
Next

[Code]...

The local variable number1 is redundant and makes the code less readable as @Meta-Knight already has emphasized. Note: All three ways are safe and give the correct result.
