Using a Checkedlistbox in a Linq statment

Hi,

I'm new to the world of Linq and trying to figure something out.

I've got a CheckedListbox which has been populated like this:-

 Dim Categories = From Category In _DB.CategoriesTable Order By Category.Name

        lstCategories.DataSource = Categories
        lstCategories.DisplayMember = "Name"
        lstCategories.ValueMember = "ID"

Open in new window


After the user checks some items, I want to take the checked items, and perform a new Linq statement like this:-

 Dim MatchedProducts = From Product In _DB.Products _
            Where Product.CategoryID = lstCategories.CheckedItems.ID

Open in new window


However, Product.CategoryID is an integer, and lstCategories.CheckedItems can contain multiple items.

I believe I have to convert lstCategories.CheckedItems into a collection to be used in the Linq statement, but I have no idea how to go about it.

Can anyone help?

Thanks
Dan

Yes create a List(of Integer) and add all checked IDs to it. Then use Contains function
