LINQ, where in (Value1, Value2, Value3.) equivalent Statement.

Posted By:Sajid P K       Posted Date: November 09, 2010    Points: 15    Category: LINQ    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

This Code Segment Help you to write Where in (x1, x2 ) equivalent statement in LINQ. The "IN" clause is built in linq via the .Contains() method

While Working, I have come across scenario to write Linq equivalent for following query.


SELECT     ID,Name, ContactTitle, Address,   City, Region, PostalCode, Country, Phone
FROM    Author WHERE    Country IN ('UK', 'USA', 'Australia')

Please see the Equivalent statement in LINQ below...

Query syntax 


string[] countries = new string[] { "UK", "USA", "Australia" };

var Author =    from c in context.Author s   
                   where countries.Contains(c.Country)   
                   select c;


Lambda expression

string[] countries = new string[] { "UK", "USA", "Australia" };

var Author =    Author.Where(c => countries.Contains(c.Country));
