Hi,

I need all contacts from BRUGGE and value for KLNT_IsBlocked whether they are klant (customer) or not. My problem is that KLNT_IsBlocked isn't nullable or can be assigned a default value, how can I fix this?

 
Using _dmeContext

            Dim contactInfo = (From c In _dmeContext.Contact _
                               Group Join k In _dmeContext.Klant On _
                               c.CONT_ID Equals k.KLNT_CONT_ID _
                               Into results = Group _
                               From result In results.DefaultIfEmpty _
                               Select New With { _
                               .CONT_ID = c.CONT_ID, _
                               .CONT_Kenmerk = c.CONT_Kenmerk, _
                               .CONT_Straat = c.CONT_Straat, _
                               .CONT_StraatNr = c.CONT_StraatNr, _
                               .CONT_StraatBus = c.CONT_StraatBus, _
                               .CONT_Postcode = c.CONT_Postcode, _
                               .CONT_Gemeente = c.CONT_Gemeente, _
                               .KLNT_IsBlocked = result.KLNT_IsBlocked})
            Dim resInfo = From cont In contactInfo Where cont.CONT_Gemeente = "BRUGGE"
            dgvContactgegevens.DataSource = resInfo
        End Using

Error: The cast to value type 'Boolean' failed because the materialized value is null. Either the result type's generic parameter or the query must use a nullable type.

I'm not sure, but can you do something like this


Using _dmeContext

            Dim contactInfo = (From c In _dmeContext.Contact _
                               Group Join k In _dmeContext.Klant On _
                               c.CONT_ID Equals k.KLNT_CONT_ID _
                               Into results = Group _
                               From result In results.DefaultIfEmpty _
                               Select New With { _
                               .CONT_ID = c.CONT_ID, _
                               .CONT_Kenmerk = c.CONT_Kenmerk, _
                               .CONT_Straat = c.CONT_Straat, _
                               .CONT_StraatNr = c.CONT_StraatNr, _
                               .CONT_StraatBus = c.CONT_StraatBus, _
                               .CONT_Postcode = c.CONT_Postcode, _
                               .CONT_Gemeente = c.CONT_Gemeente, _
                               .KLNT_IsBlocked = result.KLNT_IsBlocked == null ? false : KLNT_IsBlocked })
            Dim resInfo = From cont In contactInfo Where cont.CONT_Gemeente = "BRUGGE"
            dgvContactgegevens.DataSource = resInfo
        End Using

Hi,

Nope doesn't work at all:

Error      1      Expression expected.      
Error      2      'KLNT_IsBlocked' is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level.      
Error      3      Expression expected.
Error      4      Method arguments must be enclosed in parentheses.      
Error      5      'contactInfo' is not declared. It may be inaccessible due to its protection level.

Hi,

I think I've found a working solution:

javascript:document.getElementById('selector2').className='selectedAttach'; editCS('1081938', false, false);

This seems to do the trick.

Thanks for your suggestion though.
.KLNT_IsBlocked = CType(result.KLNT_IsBlocked, Boolean?)
