Where Query Syntax Help in  C# Code Behind

Hope this is an easy one.  I have a combobox in silverlight that is querying from a database service with a where clause.  The data has commas so it works when using the single quotes, but I can't figure out the query code in C# to get the single quotes to work.  

This works outside of Visual Studio
(MBR_112th = 'LastName, FirstName MiddleInitial.')


queryName.OutFields.AddRange(new string[] { "MBR_112TH", "DIST", "WEBSITE", "PERSONAL_WEBSITE" });
queryName.Where = "MBR_112TH = " + QueryComboBoxName.SelectedIndex.ToString();

did you try this?
queryName.OutFields.AddRange(new string[] { "MBR_112TH", "DIST", "WEBSITE", "PERSONAL_WEBSITE" });
queryName.Where = "MBR_112TH = '" + QueryComboBoxName.SelectedIndex.ToString() + "'";

You might find it a tad more readable to use string.Format, though dwe761's approach should work as well:

queryName.OutFields.AddRange(new string[] { "MBR_112TH", "DIST", "WEBSITE", "PERSONAL_WEBSITE" });
queryName.Where = string.Format"MBR_112TH = '{0}'",  QueryComboBoxName.SelectedIndex.ToString());

Open in new window


where "{0}" gets substituted for the first parameter after the format string (i.e. the first parameter to string.Format).

P.S.

I forgot an opening parentheses on the function call. Corrected below:
queryName.OutFields.AddRange(new string[] { "MBR_112TH", "DIST", "WEBSITE", "PERSONAL_WEBSITE" });
queryName.Where = string.Format("MBR_112TH = '{0}'",  QueryComboBoxName.SelectedIndex.ToString());
