Actually I am trying to join table using LINQ query and than doing select thing and trying to foreach loop of the whole thing  and trying to compare that thing but It is giving me error .

 DataClassesDataContext db = new DataClassesDataContext();
        var activities = from o in db.maintenanceOrders
                         from r in db.rentalUnits
                         from tr in db.tenantRentals
                         where tr.TenantID == Convert.ToInt32(TenantID)
                              && o.RentalUnitID == tr.rentalUnitID                            
                              && o.Scheduled_Date.Date == e.Day.Date
                         select new { o,tr};(How to select two things in LINQ and how to loop though of two things in foreach loop how can I mention that.
 

                       
        foreach (maintenanceOrders o in activities)
        {
            HyperLink link = new HyperLink();
            link.Text = o.Comments;
         
            link.CssClass = "activity";
            //link.NavigateUrl =
            //    Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackClientHyperlink(CalendarLinkButton1,
            //        a.ActivityID.ToString(), false);
            e.Cell.Controls.Add(link);
        }

You have to use join keyword to join the tables. Refer: http://www.dotnetperls.com/join

Your Linq query.ToList() will give the result in list. Then apply foreach on that.

Hello Itgirl16

Try the attached code sample. I guessed at the 2nd join as I wasn't sure how the variable 'r' was being used... So feel free to correct that :)

Thanks,

Richard
DataClassesDataContext db = new DataClassesDataContext();
			var activities = from o in db.maintenanceOrders
							 join e in db.rentalUnits
								on e.Day.Date equals o.Scheduled_Date.Date // I guessed at this line as I wasn't sure what 'r' was///
							 join tr in db.tenantRentals
								on tr.rentalUnitID equals o.RentalUnitID
							 where tr.TenantID == Convert.ToInt32(TenantID)
							 select new { o, tr };

Here is the sample to select multiple values and looping through it....(through if r is not required you can remove it)

you can either use ForEach extension or normal forach loop with having "var" data type for activity.

Note: You can use complex objects as well in place of arrays in your application.


 
var maintenanceOrders = new []{1,2,3 };
            var rentalUnits = new[] { 1.5, 2.7, 3.6 };
            var tenantRentals = new double[] { 3.22, 5.32, 2.44 };
            //DataClassesDataContext db = new DataClassesDataContext();
            var activities = (from o in maintenanceOrders
                             from r in rentalUnits
                             from tr in tenantRentals
                             //where tr.TenantID == Convert.ToInt32(1)
                             //     && o.RentalUnitID == tr.rentalUnitID
                             //     && o.Scheduled_Date.Date == e.Day.Date
                             select new { o, tr }).ToList();

            activities.ForEach(a =>
            {
                Console.WriteLine(a.o);
                Console.WriteLine(a.tr);
            }
            );
            
            /******** OR ************/
            
            foreach (var activity in activities)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(activity.o);
                Console.WriteLine(activity.tr);
            }
