How to use LINQ projection Operators in ASP.NET

Introduction

Projection operators are used to transform an object into a new object of a different type. By using the Projection operators, you can construct a new object of a different type that is built from each object. The Select and SelectMany clauses are the Projection operators used in LINQ.
The Select operator performs a projection over a sequence and projects the value that is based on a transform function. The Select operator in LINQ performs function just as the Select statement in SQL. The Select operator specifies which elements are to be retrieved. For example, you can use the Select clause to project the first letter from each string in a list of strings. The syntax of using the Select clause is:

C#
public static lEnumerable<S> Select<T, S>( this IEnumerable<T> source, Function<T, S> selector);

The second type of Projection operator used in LINQ is the SelectMany operator. The SelectMany operator projects a sequence of values that are based on a transform function and then organize them into one sequence. The syntax of using the SelectMany clause is:
C#
public static IEnumerable<S> SeIectMany<T, S>( this IEnumerable<T> source, Function<T, IEnumerable<S»selector);

You must be wondering about the difference between the Select and SelectMany operators. The Select and
SelectMany operators are both used to produce a result value from a source of values. The difference lies in
the result value. The Select operator is used to produce one result value for every source value. The result
value is a collection that has the same number of elements from the query.
In contrast, the SelectMany operator produces a single result that contains a concatenated collection from the query.

Let's take an simple example of SelectMany Clause

Source view
  <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Select Many Clause" 
            onclick="Button1_Click" />
        <br />
    </div>
    <asp:ListBox ID="ListBox1" runat="server" Height="169px" Width="108px">
    </asp:ListBox>
    </form>
Code Behind View
 protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        string[] mytext = new string[] { "Hello world", " this is simple", "example of projection operator" };
        IEnumerable<string[]> myword = mytext.Select(x => x.Split(' '));
        foreach (string[] item in myword)
            foreach (string wr in item)
                ListBox1.Items.Add(wr);
            
        
    }
Code Generate the Following Output

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video



Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:


      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,



  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,


The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:




 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
