trying to obtain anonymous object from IList<object>

Hi

I have to use NHibernate and an SQL query (cant use HQL etc.), which means I get a flat table back  not typed objects as usual.

For example:

NHibernateHelper.GetCurrentSession().CreateSQLQuery(query).List<object>();

Where query is some T-SQL code.

This gives me an IList<object> - so the flat table is represented as a list of objects (rows) which are in fact string arrays containing each rows data (columns).

Usually I am dealing with a typed list (e.g. IList<Item> where item is a simple object with a few fields). So I can create anonymous object like this:

IList<Item> list;

object items;

items = from i in list
                        select
                        new
                        {
                            id = i.ItemId,
                            cell = new[]
                                {
                                    i.ItemId.ToString(),
                                    i.ItemName
                                }
                        };

I would like to do the same but do not know how.

Thanks in adavance,

Christian

Thanks DTribe,

I did something like this inthe end:

test = new object[list.Count];
                int counter = 0;

                foreach (object[] o in list)
                {
                    test[counter] = new
                    {
                        id = o[0].ToString(),
                        cell = new[]
                        {
                            o[0].ToString(), // ItemId
                            o[1].ToString(), // Version
                            ...
                        }
                    };
                   
                    counter++;
                }
