In this article, let's learn about how to use
LINQ in .NET.
Note: If you have not done so already, I recommend you read the article on Using LINQ Chunk to Split Data.

We can determine the type of data contained within the collection using LINQ
All() method. The idea here is to find out if all items in a
collection meet a specific condition. For primitive data types like
string, etc we can just compare the values against other value in the collection.
Common uses of All method
All() is used to answer questions about collection such as, all students passed the exam?, Do all orders got shipped? Do all customers
opted for newsletters?. Let's take a look at syntax. The syntax for All() is we apply the All() method to some
and we specify a predicate. This is then going to check if all items within the collection match the given condition. For example,
IEnumerable<T>.All(predicate). This will return a boolean value true or false indicating do
all elements in the collection met the criteria?. The boolean result will be returned only after checking all elements in the collection. Hence this will scan the entire collection.
Code Sample - LINQ All

Let's try LINQ All
- We have
Productclass with following properties -
Id, Name, Color, Price, Size
- Enter the predicate to find if all products matches the condition.
- Click on All Button
- Click on reset to try other combination

collection matches a criteria or not. All these can be used with any
