Hi:
I need to put my table "tblmyWebsite" data into List<T> class "List<myProductObject>
" and use LINQ to SQL.
I had encountered this err. See photo please.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Collections;

namespace myWebApplication
{
    public partial class LINQ_List : System.Web.UI.Page
    {
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            showProducts();
        }
        private void showProducts()
        {
            dbDataContext db = new dbDataContext();

            // the way to convert LINQ query to ArrayList
            List<myProductObject> myList = new List<myProductObject>

            //myList.AddRange(products).ToList();
            myList.AddRange(( from p in db.tblmyWebsites
                                select new
                                {
                                    p.Id,
                                    p.productName,
                                    p.tblprogrammingLanguage.programmingLanguage,
                                    p.tblapplicationType.applicationType,
                                    p.image,
                                    p.review,
                                    p.price
                                }).ToList());
        }
    }

        public string applicationType { get; set; }
        public string image { get; set; }
        public string review { get; set; }
        public int price { get; set; }

        public myProductObject(int Id, string productName, string programmingLanguage, string applicationType, 
            string image, string review, int price)
        {
            this.Id = Id;
            this.productName = productName;
            this.programmingLanguage = programmingLanguage;
            this.applicationType = applicationType;
            this.image = image;

To return myProductObject list, you need to specify myProductObject type in the select statement , thus please replace your LINQ query (lines 25  to 35 ) with the LINQ query shown below:
from p in db.tblmyWebsites
select new myProductObject( p.Id,
                                    p.productName,
                                    p.tblprogrammingLanguage.programmingLanguage,
                                    p.tblapplicationType.applicationType,
                                    p.image,
                                    p.review,
                                    p.price
                                )

Your actual error for #2 is in this line:
List<myProductObject> myList = new List<myProductObject>
because the line is not properly terminated. Please change this line as shown below:
List<myProductObject> myList = new List<myProductObject>();

I had seen a plenty of videos talking about using class with linq and List<T>.
The samples was always initiated hard coded objects .
I need someone to correct my information please.
Is it true that :
      I make "myProductObject" class.
      I select my "tblmyWebsites" records using "LINQ to SQL".
      I add selected records to a List< myProductObject > and name it "myList".
      Then I fill in the GridView1.DataSource = myList;
                  GridView1.DataBind();
      Is it appropriate approach to do it this way, while I'm able to fill in the GridView1.DataSource using LINQ immediately?
      What is the benefits with doing such a thing?

the code works good with me is:

private void showProducts()
        {
            dbDataContext db = new dbDataContext();

            // the way to convert LINQ query to ArrayList
            List<myProductObject> myList = new List<myProductObject>();

            //myList.AddRange(products).ToList();
            myList.AddRange(from p in db.tblmyWebsites
                      select new myProductObject( p.Id,
                                    p.productName,
                                    p.tblprogrammingLanguage.programmingLanguage,
                                    p.tblapplicationType.applicationType,
                                    p.image,
                                    p.review,
                                    p.price
                                ));
            GridView1.DataSource = myList;
            GridView1.DataBind();
        }

thanks a lot
