Hello EE,

I have a dictionnary with KeyValuePair of integer, String.

Lets say it has:   1, "Test"    2 , "Hello    3, "Sunny"

I need to fill a ListBox that has ValueMember =  "ID  and DisplayMember = "Description"

the DataSource needs to come from the Dictionnary but since I cannot Alias a dictionnary columns, I used LINQ in this way :

                Dim q = _
                    From m In dict
                    Select ID = m.Key _
                         , DEscription = m.Value


but when I do   myLsitBox.DataSource = q

I have error...

can you help ?
