Given the sample code shown below, how can I use linq to filter the collection to group By field1 and select the highest value of field2, so that my new collection would have classB and classC only in it?
public class Class1
    {
        public int field1;
        public int field2;
        public DateTime field3;
        public int field4;
    }
 
    public class Class1Collection : Collection<Class1>, IEnumerable<Class1>
    {
    }
 
 
    public static class TestClass
    {
 
        public static void Test()
        {
            Class1 classA = new Class1();
            classA.field1 = 1;
            classA.field2 = 2;
            classA.field3 = new DateTime(2009, 01, 01);
            classA.field4 = 3;
 
            Class1 classB = new Class1();
            classB.field1 = 1;
            classB.field2 = 3;
            classB.field3 = new DateTime(2009, 02, 01);
            classB.field4 = 3;
 
            Class1 classC = new Class1();
            classC.field1 = 2;
            classC.field2 = 1;
            classC.field3 = new DateTime(2009, 02, 01);
            classC.field4 = 3;
 
            Class1Collection collection = new Class1Collection();
            collection.Add(classA);
            collection.Add(classB);
            collection.Add(classC);
 
            Class1Collection filteredCollection = ??
        }
 
    }

Try this LINQ query...
from c in collection
group c by c.field1 into grouped
from g in grouped
where g.field2 == grouped.Max( m => m.field2 )
select g;

Hi weimha;

Here is some sample code showing how this can be done.

            classA.field2 = 2;
            classA.field3 = new DateTime(2009, 01, 01);
            classA.field4 = 3;

                                               where m.field2 == max
                                               select m).ToList();
 
            // Display the results
            foreach (Class1 c1 in filteredCollection)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("{0,4}{1,4}{2,24}{3,4}",
                    c1.field1, c1.field2, c1.field3, c1.field4);
            }
 
        }
    }
