C# Convert List IEnumerable<T> to 2D multi-dimensional array

//extension method
public static object[,] To2DArray<T>(this IEnumerable<T> lines, params Func<T, object>[] lambdas)
{
  var array = new object[lines.Count(), lambdas.Count()];
  var lineCounter = 0;
  lines.ForEach(line =>
  {
    for (var i = 0; i < lambdas.Length; i++)
    {
      array[lineCounter, i] = lambdas[i](line);
    }
    lineCounter++;
  });
  return array;
}
 
[Test]
public void Test()
{
  var lines = new List<Line>();
  lines.Add(new Line() { Id=1, Name="One", Age=25 });
  lines.Add(new Line() { Id = 2, Name = "Two", Age = 35 });
  lines.Add(new Line() { Id = 3, Name = "Three", Age = 45 });
 
  //Convert to 2d array
  //[1,One,25]
  //[2,Two,35]
  //[3,Three,45]
  var range = lines.To2DArray(x => x.Id, x => x.Name, x=> x.Age);
 
  //test the result
  for(var i=0;i<lines.Count;i++)
  {
    for(var j=0;j<3;j++)//3 lambdas passed to function
    {
      Console.Write(range[i,j]+",");
    }
    Console.WriteLine();
  }
}
 
class Line
{
  public int Id { get; set; }
  public string Name { get; set; }
  public int Age { get; set; }
}

  1. Hi, i'm getting error at lines.ForEach in To2DArray() method
    error:
    System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable' does not contain a definition for 'Foreach' and no extension method 'Foreach' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?

  2. I think I've used extension method for this

    public static void ForEach(this IEnumerable enumeration, Action action)
    {
    foreach(T item in enumeration)
    {
    action(item);
    }
    }
