Experienced .NET web developer here looking to get going on all this Entity Framework stuff. I have a book ordered, but it doesn't ship till December! I have the entity data model created from my database and made a few modifications to that and I think I have a fair grasp on all that. I've also managed a couple of LINQ queries to return string lists of values from a single property queried across a range of objects (such as 'from c in entityModel.Contacts select c.Name;'). What I'd like to see is a simple example of is how to write a method like getContactList() to query my Entity Data model and return a ContactID and Name in some form that can be bound to a DropDownList control.

Thanks
