How to retrieve SharePoint Discussion Board replies and other information programmatically in C# code?

Hi, I have one discussion board name is PBG, user have posted some topic/subject and other users replied on those topic/subject.

Now I want to retrieve the information who replied (user login/display name) on which date topic wise.

I write below code to get all the topic/subject in that Discussion Board:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
mySite = SPContext.Current.Site;
myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
SPList discussion_list = myWeb.Lists["PBG"];
DataTable dt = discussion_list.Folders.GetDataTable();
GridView1.DataSource = dt;
GridView1.DataBind();

Please share the code to retrieve information about users who replied and replied data with topic wise.
Thanks.

Hi, thanks for sharing MSDN thread, I have written below code to get all topic/subject:
----------------------------------------------------------
mySite = SPContext.Current.Site;
myWeb = mySite.OpenWeb();
SPList discussion_list = myWeb.Lists["PBG"];
foreach (SPListItem folder in discussion_list.Folders)
{
Response.Write("Item Name: " + folder.Name + "<BR>");
Response.Write("Item ID: " + folder.ID + "<BR>");
Response.Write("Author: " + folder["Author"].ToString() + "<BR>");
Response.Write("Posted Date: " + folder["Created"].ToString() + "<BR>");
}
//----------------------------------------------------
But still I am not able to retrieve the replies information of each topic/subject means who replied and replied date because the code
 7) Loop through all discussion replies:
foreach (SPListItem listItem in myDiscussionList.Items)// not working giving error that “Unable to cast object of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SPList' to type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SPListItem'.”
{
}
,
can you please share the code how to get replies information?

The implication of the error message is that myDiscussionList.Items is returning a SPList rather than a SPListItemCollection. I'd find that very unlikely.

Can you step through the code and confirm this please?

Alernatively, post your full code and I'll replicate it in my Sandbox later.
