RemoveAll()

ICollection interface has List type most of time, so this Extension allows to call RemoveAll() method with the same signature like on List

Source

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

public static class CollectionExtensions
{
    public static void RemoveAll<T>(this ICollection<T> @this, Func<T, bool> predicate)
    {
        List<T> list = @this as List<T>;

        if (list != null)
        {
            list.RemoveAll(new Predicate<T>(predicate));
        }
        else
        {
            List<T> itemsToDelete = @this
                .Where(predicate)
                .ToList();

            foreach (var item in itemsToDelete)
            {
                @this.Remove(item);
            }
        }
    }
}

Example

ICollection<int> items = new List<int>(new[] { 1, 3, 5 });
items.RemoveAll(x => x > 2);

ICollection<int> linkedItems = new LinkedList<int>(new[] { 1, 3, 5 });
linkedItems.RemoveAll(x => x > 2);
