Left Join LINQ

from M in Member
                            join MFL in FriendsList
                                on M.MemberID equals MFL.FriendID

Is this situation sufficient for left join in LINQ.

Hi!

Why not use "Left" keyword with join like this:

I am using this query to get the value from 2 tables, but I am getting the error. Secondly once we get the records in the variable searchresult how can I bind it to a gridview.

I think there is syntax error at where condition .
Try this
(from M in Member
                            join MFL in FriendsList
                                on M.MemberID equals MFL.FriendID into MemberList
                                where (
                                            (M.MemberFullName.Contains(searchString) || M.MemberEmailID.Contains(searchString)) 
                                            && M.IsMemberActive == 1 && M.MemberID != ConfigurationKeys.MemberID
                                            && MFL.MemberID == ConfigurationKeys.MemberID
                                      )
                                            
                                from result in MemberList.DefaultIfEmpty() 
                                select new {M.MemberID,M.MemberFullName,M.MemberEmailID,result.IsRelationApproved});

Hi

I am getting the same error again but when I change the code to

 var searchResult = (from M in Member
         join MFL in FriendsList
             on M.MemberID equals MFL.FriendID into MemberList
         where (
                     (M.MemberFullName.Contains(searchString) || M.MemberEmailID.Contains(searchString))
                     && M.IsMemberActive == 1 && M.MemberID != ConfigurationKeys.MemberID                     
               )
                            from result in MemberList.DefaultIfEmpty()
                            where result.MemberID == ConfigurationKeys.MemberID
                select new { M.MemberID, M.MemberFullName, M.MemberEmailID, result.IsRelationApproved }).ToList();

Open in new window


then I am not getting any compile time error but I am getting runtime error
LINQ to Entities does not recognize the method
'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable`1[Model.FriendsList] DefaultIfEmpty[FriendsList](System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable`1[Model.FriendsList])' method, and this method cannot be translated into a store expression.
