Hi,
I have a custom content type which is not showing up in LINQ Intellisence.

I already ran the SPmetal.exe to create the MyEntitiesDataContext Class. The list is though showing up in the LINQ intellisence.
However, the list is associated with the custom content type. And, the custom column is not showing up in LINQ Intellisence.
How can i bring in the custom column in LINQ Intellisence.

Here are more details I would like to provide

            using (MyEntitiesDataContext sq = new MyEntitiesDataContext(currentSPsite.Url))
            {
                //Using LINQ to work with DataContext Object to fetch LSO Num from SequentialIDs list
                //EntityList<SeqlID> sequentialIDs = sq.GetList<SeqlID>("SequenceIDs");

                var q = from unique_Id in sq.SequentialIDs
                        where unique_Id.Title.StartsWith("LSO")
                        select new
                        {
                            unique_Id.Id,
                            unique_Id.Title,
                        };

                foreach (var a in q)
                {
                    iLsoNum = Convert.ToInt32(a.Id);
                    iLsoNum = iLsoNum + 1 ;                    
                }
            }        


In the above code the list 'SequentialIDs' has a custom column unique_Id. However, the intellisence is not picking up that column.

thanks in advance for any given help...!!

Hi Guys,
After struggling for a day, I finally found the solution.
Actually, in my case, SPMetail.exe was not recognizing the custom content type.
It was associating the list with the parent content type which in my case was item.

To resolve the issue I changed the contenty type for the custom list in the entitydatacontext.cs file.
            [Microsoft.SharePoint.Linq.ListAttribute(Name="SequentialIDs")]
        public Microsoft.SharePoint.Linq.EntityList<Ct_Unique_Id> SequentialIDs
        {
                  get {
                return this.GetList<Ct_Unique_Id>("SequentialIDs");
                  }
            }
