LINQ GroupBy

Hi Experts,

I need your help to add grouping by T.tid   in this code. Thank you in advance.


                    var mydata = db.data
                   
                    .Where(T => T.some.Any(F => F.my_id == another_id))
                   
                    .ToArray()
                 
                    .Select(T => new MyInfo
                    {
                        TId = T.tid,
                        PData = T.data
                       
                     
                    }).ToArray();

Hi fpoyavo;

What is the data type of T.tid? Because if you create a grouping it will return a hierarchical data object. What is also the data type of MyInfo.Tid? Because it will need to store that object.

Can you show in a diagram what you want that grouping to look like or what you need it to look like.

T.tid is int. MyInfo.Tid is int. MyInfo.PData is string.

So what are you trying to accomplish by grouping in the query?

To eliminate duplicated data

Grouping will not get rid of duplicates. When you say duplicates does that mean that all columns having the same values or certain columns only.

Some of them. Not all.

Hi fpoyavo;

The IEqualityComparer below is used to see if two rows in the database table can be considered duplicates. The IEqualityComparer is only considering two columns to test whether they are considered duplicates or not. If more columns are needed to determine  if they are duplicate then you must add those columns as well.

// See comment below
var ec = new OrderEqualityComparer();

// In the query you need to add the Distinct method after the first ToArray.
var mydata = db.data
               .Where(T => T.some.Any(F => F.my_id == another_id))
               .ToArray()
               .Distinct(ec)
               .Select(T => new MyInfo
               {
                   TId = T.tid,
                   PData = T.data              
               }).ToArray();

// This class is used to match two data object from the database table
// data to see if they are considered duplicates.               
class OrderEqualityComparer : IEqualityComparer<data>
{

    public bool Equals(data d1, data d2)
    {
        if (d1.TID == d2.TID & d1.OtherCoulmn == d2.OtherCoulmn)
        {
            return true;
        }
        else
        {
            return false;
        }
    }


    public int GetHashCode(data d)
    {
        int hCode = d.TID.GetHashCode() ^ d.OtherCoulmn.GetHashCode();
        return hCode.GetHashCode();
    }

}
