I am trying to select a collection of entities into a custom class using the following code:

 
Public Function GetKeywordSummaries(ByVal _Keywords As EntityCollection(Of Keyword)) As System.Linq.IQueryable(Of KeywordSummary)



            Return (From k In _Keywords _

                        Order By k.Word _

                        Select New KeywordSummary With { _

                           .Id = k.Id, _

                           .Word = k.Word, _

                           .ArticleCount = k.Articles.Count})



        End Function

Open in new window


In the code, I have an entitycollection named Keywords and a custom class KeywordSummaries.

When executing the function, the following error occurs:

 
Unable to cast object of type 'WhereSelectEnumerableIterator`2[Pipeline.Blogjammer.Keyword,Pipeline.Blogjammer.KeywordSummary]' to type 'System.Linq.IQueryable`1[Pipeline.Blogjammer.KeywordSummary]'

Open in new window


Does anyone know why and how to get around this problem?

I'm not sure, maybe you need to specify what type you are returning.  Gave you an example.

Public Function GetKeywordSummaries(_Keywords As EntityCollection(Of Keyword)) As System.Linq.IQueryable(Of KeywordSummary)



	Return (From k In _Keywords

                 Order By k.Word 

                 Select New KeywordSummary With { _

		 .Id = k.Id, _

		 .Word = k.Word, _

		 .ArticleCount = k.Articles.Count }).[Single](Of System.Linq.IQueryable(Of KeywordSummary))



End Function

This doesn't seem to work.  I am getting an IntelliSense error in Visual Studio:

"Overload Resolution failed because no accessible 'Single' accepts this number of type arguments"

I seem to have solved the problem myself by adding .AsQueryable at the end of the LINQ statement
