Hi,

I have 5 checkboxes for different Job types.  

the user can select multiple checkboxes.

my linq filter is wrong.

how can I say if the user select one or more of the checkboxes to filter it.

here's what I have

    if (Contract)
                {
                    ResultSet = ResultSet.Where(c => c.a.JobTypesID.Value == 2);
                }

                if (Intership)
                {
                    ResultSet = ResultSet.Where(c => c.a.JobTypesID.Value == 3);
                }

                if (NonProfit)
                {
                    ResultSet = ResultSet.Where(c => c.a.JobTypesID.Value == 5);
                }

                if (PartTime)
                {
                    ResultSet = ResultSet.Where(c => c.a.JobTypesID.Value == 4);
                }

                if (Telecommute)
                {
                    ResultSet = ResultSet.Where(c => c.a.JobTypesID.Value == 1);
                }

right now if I select more than one selection it will not display anything.

Thanks,

You filter first on one id, then you filter the filtered resultset on a second id... That's like doing a logical AND on two exclusive states...  This is why you get no results.  You want something along these lines:
                List<int> filterList = new List<int>();
                if (Contract)
                {
                    filterList.Add(2);
                }

                if (Intership)
                {
                    filterList.Add(3);
                }

                if (NonProfit)
                {
                    filterList.Add(5);
                }

                if (PartTime)
                {
                    filterList.Add(4);
                }

                if (Telecommute)
                {
                    filterList.Add(1);
                }
                ResultSet = ResultSet.Where(c => c.a.JobTylesID.HasValue && filterList.Contains(c.a.JobTypesID.Value));

Hi lulu50;

I think something like this will give you the solution you are looking for. The main reason why you solution was not giving the wanted results is that doing multiple where clauses like you were doing is a AND operation and not OR.

List<int> jobType = new List<int>();

if (Contract) jobType.Add(2);
if (Intership) jobType.Add(3);
if (NonProfit) jobType.Add(5);
if (PartTime) jobType.Add(4);
if (Telecommute) jobType.Add(1);

ResultSet = "The first part of the query HERE".Where(c => jobType.Contains(c.a.JobTypesID.Value));
