Hi, I am using nhibernate in my web application to interact with my SQL Server database.
and using ICriteria to extract records from the database.
My question is, can I use ICriteria just to extract a single value(eg: Max(Column name)) from database and how can I store it in an integer variable?
Till now, I have been using ICriteria only with IList , but don't know how can I use it to return a single value from the database.
Could someone please help?

it would be something like this.
Best regards.
ICriteria criteria = GetBasicCriteria();
return criteria.UniqueResult<int>();

Thanks for your reply cubaman. I am getting following error on Projections keyword.

'The name Projection does not exist in current context.

Am I missing any reference in my project?

Oh, I figured it out.
I included the reference: NHibernate.Criterion;
