I'm new to Linq and I'd like to rewrite the query I use to return results from a DomainService so that the columns are returned and a specific order.  If this was SQL I would use somthing like SELECT col1, col2, col3 from myTable.  The rows will be loaded into a datagrid in a Silverlight app.
public IQueryable<myTable> GetMyTable()
        {
            return this.ObjectContext.myTable.OrderBy(e => e.ItemID);
            
        }

I'm not 100% on this, but have you tried switching the order of the properties as defined in your myTable class?

Im not sure how you would do it with a datatable but, the syntax looks like this if you have a specific object your using:

var test = from t in myListFromDomainObject
                 select new BindingObjectThatICreated
                 {
                      ObjectVal = t.ObjectVal,
                      ObjectVal2 = t.ObjectVal2
                 }

Here are some pretty good basic examples:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vcsharp/aa336756

Hope this helps, if you need more direction just let me know.

binaryevo: I tried your solution and was getting an error on return from the DomainService to get the data.  The following thread post http://forums.silverlight.net/p/119935/270919.aspx has what you're talking about as a solution but the person who posted points out a limitation of this kind of solution.  


For what I want to do, displaying columns in a specific order in a grid, the code I've attached works the best.




<riaControls:DomainDataSource Name="questionDataSource" LoadSize="20" QueryName="GetTestQuestions" AutoLoad="True">
