Search 2 entities

I have 2 related entities.

public class Projects
    {
        [Key]
        public int ProjectID { get; set; }
        public int VersionNo { get; set; }        

        [StringLength(30)]
        public string CreateUserName { get; set; }


        public virtual ICollection<ProjectDetails> ProjectDetails { get; set; }

    } //public class Projects 

Open in new window

And
public class ProjectDetails
    { 
        public int ProjectDetailsID { get; set; }

        [Key, Column(Order = 1)]
        public int ProjectID { get; set; }
        [Key, Column(Order = 2)]
        public int VersionNo { get; set; }
              
        [StringLength(50), Display(Name = "Name")]
        public string ProjectLead { get; set; }



        public Projects Projects { get; set; } 
    
    } //public class ProjectDetails

I want to return the project and details to a gridview and am using this
public List<Projects> SearchProjectWithDetails(string SearchText, string sortExpression)
        {            

            using (var db = new CERTContext())
            {               
                List<Projects> PList = new List<Projects>();
                //PList = db.Projects.Where(p => p.ProjectID == 19).ToList();   //This worked
                                
                //This also works
                var Projects = (from p in db.Projects
                                where p.ProjectID > 10
                                orderby p.VersionNo descending
                                select p).Take(3);


                foreach (var Project in Projects)
                {
                    PList.Add(Project);
                }//foreach (var Function in Functions)

                return PList;

            }// using (var db = new CERTContext())

        }//public Projects GetProject(int ProjectId)

It does work but I would like to be able to search/filter on the Project lead.

Sql would have been select Projects.ProjectId , ProjectDetails.ProjectLead From
Projects inner join ProjectDetails on Projects.ProjectId = ProjectDetails.ProjectId
 and Projects.VersionNo= ProjectDetails.VersionNo
Where Projects .ProjectID > 10 And  ProjectDetails.ProjectLead  like '%Eamon%'
Order by Projects.VersionNo desc.

Can someone please help with the correct way to do this
Thanks

Try:

using System.Data.Linq.SqlClient;

...

                var Projects = (from p in db.Projects
                                join d in db.ProjectDetails on p.VersionNo equals d.VersionNo
                                where p.ProjectID > 10 &&
                                      SqlMethods.Like(d.ProjectLead, "%Eamon%")
                                orderby p.VersionNo descending
                                select p).Take(3);

The type or namespace name 'Linq' does not exist in the namespace 'System.Data'

so sqlMethos is not working.

I didn't realize this was L2E. Try using Contains instead:

....

                var Projects = (from p in db.Projects
                                join d in db.ProjectDetails on p.VersionNo equals d.VersionNo
                                where p.ProjectID > 10 &&
                                      d.ProjectLead.Contains("Eamon")
                                orderby p.VersionNo descending
                                select p).Take(3);

....
