ICustomCriteriaOperatorQueryable.GetCriteria(CriteriaOperator[]) Method

When implemented by a class, returns a CriteriaOperator equivalent to a custom function used in LINQ to XPO expressions, based on specified function parameters.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v19.2.dll


CriteriaOperator GetCriteria(
    params CriteriaOperator[] operands
Function GetCriteria(
    ParamArray operands As CriteriaOperator()
) As CriteriaOperator


Name Type Description
operands CriteriaOperator[]

An array of CriteriaOperator containing function parameters.


Type Description

A CriteriaOperator object which corresponds to parameters passed as the operands.


The code below shows a sample GetCriteria implementation processing the operands.

public class MyConcatFunction : ICustomFunctionOperatorBrowsable, ICustomFunctionOperatorFormattable,
    ICustomCriteriaOperatorQueryable {
    const string FunctionName = "MyConcat";
    // ...

    public CriteriaOperator GetCriteria(params CriteriaOperator[] operands) {            
        if(operands == null || operands.Length != 1 || !(operands[0] is MemberInitOperator)) 
            throw new ArgumentException(FunctionName);
        CriteriaOperatorCollection operandCollection = new CriteriaOperatorCollection();
        foreach(XPMemberAssignment operand in ((MemberInitOperator)operands[0]).Members) {
        return new FunctionOperator(FunctionName, operandCollection);
