CSharp - Reference element index in Select operator


The following code shows how to embed the index that is passed to our selector method into our output sequence's element type.


using System;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections;
using System.Collections.Generic;

class Program/*from  w ww  . ja  v a2  s .c o m*/
    static void Main(string[] args)
          string[] names = {
            "Python", "Java", "Javascript", "Bash", "C++", "Oracle"};
          var nameObjs = names.Select((p, i) => new { Index = i, LastName = p });
          foreach (var item in nameObjs)
            Console.WriteLine("{0}.  {1}", item.Index + 1, item.LastName);



This example will output the index number plus one, followed by the name.
