I am new to .net. I am trying to populate a listbox with the following code. what am I doing wrong? The compiler complaigns about the last line saying "cannot convert a non deligate type"

      private void popList()
            {
                  var context = new AWDEntities();
                  {
                        var query = from c in context.COMMITTEES
                                          where c.COMMITTEE_ID == 5
                                          select new { c.COMMITTEE_HOUSE, c.COMMITTEE_MEMBERSHIP, c.COMMITTEE_HEARING_AGENDAS };
                        var cust = query.First();
                        ListBox1.Text = cust.ToString;
                  };
            }

      }
}

List<string> MyList = new List<string>();
MyList.Add("HELLO");
MyList.Add("WORLD");

Just replace this to your last line of code
ListBox1.Add(String.IsnullorEmpty(cust.toString()))

I guess based on the error message you received, the problem is a few missing chars as below:

ListBox1.Text = cust.ToString(); // mind the trailing parentheses

as ToString is treated as a method reference otherwise rather than an actual method call.

Is your variable var cust  returns multiple data.
If yes then try with this

foreach (string newCust in cust)
{
    Console.WriteLine(newCust);
}
