LINQ join

HI Experts,

I have this linq which is ok except one piece

myout.AddRange((from o in context.a
                join od in context.b on o.t_id equals od.id
                select new
                {
                    od.id,
                    od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte
                }).ToList()
                  .Select( od => new MyInfo
                   {
                       Tid = od.id,
                       Timestamp = od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte == null
                                     ? "" 
                                     : od.some_dte.Value.ToString("yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm tt")
                   }).ToArray());

in first part   od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte is ok since it get via navigation property
but in second part Timestamp = od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte gives me error

"anonymous type does not contain definition for mynavigationproperty ......."

How do I fix it ?

Thanks.

Hi fpoyavo;

Please post the class MyInfo and the SQL data type of some_dte in this statement, od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte. Also what is the relationship between od and some_dte in the database for example

od           some_dte
One    to    One
One    to    Many
Many   to    Many

Your first select is projecting to an anonymous.
change it to

 select new REPLACE WITH YOUR CLASS NAME
                {
                    od.id,
                    od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte
                }).ToList()

Fernando,
Linq doesn't necessarily mean databases. The framework have no idea about the properties you are trying to read when it sees you projecting into an Anonymous.

Hi guys,

I actually fixed but now I would do groupby od.id  How I do that ? Thanks a lot.

myout.AddRange((from o in context.a
                join od in context.b on o.t_id equals od.id
                select new
                {
                    od.id,
                    od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte
                }).ToList()
                  .Select( od => new MyInfo
                   {
                       Tid = od.id,
                       Timestamp = od.mynavigationproperty.some_dte == null
                                     ? "" 
                                     : od.some_dte.Value.ToString("yyyy/MM/dd HH:mm tt")
                   }).ToArray());
