Predicate<T>

Overview

The Blocks that defines a set of criteria and determines whether the specified object meets those criteria.

Use case

You can use this block to represent a method that will perform some check on the object.

For example if you need to find all item that meets some criteria in the list you can use List<T> method that takes an Predicate block:

var Items := new List<String>(["John", "Jack", "Steve"]);
var Found := Items.FindAll(method (item: String): Boolean begin
                            exit item.StartsWith("J");
                           end);
Found.ForEach(item -> writeln(item));

In this example we've used an anonymous method, but it can be used with a static method or lambda expression:

var Found := Items.FindAll(item -> item.StartsWith("J"));
