Hi:

I have a field in a products table that I am trying to transform when it is in a list from "MyPic" to "/Content/Image/MyPic_small.png"

The Model is:
public class Product
    {
        public int ProductId { get; set; }
        public int GenreId { get; set; }
        public string Title { get; set; }
       public string PicUrl { get; set; }
        public virtual Genre Genre { get; set; }
    }

Open in new window


The current Linq expression is:
var genreModel = storeDB.Genres.Include("Products")
.Single(g => g.Name == genre);

Open in new window


My Pic is found in the field PicUrl.  Any help in figuring out how to do this in the Linq expression greatly appreciated.

Are you getting any run time exception? If so please post complete message.

The query if it is working will return 1 or more records for Product . If it is a collection you will need to state which one if it is a One -to-One relationship between then it will be genreModel.Product.PicUrl.

Thanks for your response - I'm afraid I found a quick solution and then went off and did other things - and well, dropped the ball.  I think looking back on it now that I probably need to create a dto but for now don't have time and my quick solution is working.

Regards,
