I have no idea what I'm doing wrong here but I have an action
public ActionResult Edit(string id)

        {                

            CWRepository CWA = new CWRepository();         

            var vm = new MerchantAgentViewModel()
            {
                merchantinfo = CWA.GetMerchantInfo(id),
                merchantpercentages = CWA.GetMerchantPercentages(id),
                getAgent1 = CWA.getAgentName(CWA.GetMerchantInfo(id).AGENT_ID.Value),
                getAgent2 = CWA.getAgentName(CWA.GetMerchantInfo(id).AGENT_ID2.Value),
                getAgent3 = CWA.getAgentName(CWA.GetMerchantInfo(id).AGENT_ID3.Value),
                getAgent4 = CWA.getAgentName(CWA.GetMerchantInfo(id).AGENT_ID4.Value)
            };        

              return View(vm);
        }

Open in new window

I have this in my repository
public string getAgentName(int id)
        {
            using (CWA_MerchantEntities context = getDataContext())
            {
                var info = (from n in context.MERCHANT_AGENT
                            where n.Agent_ID == (id)
                            select n.Agent_F_Name + " " + n.Agent_L_Name   
                      );
                return info.ToString();              

            }
        }

Open in new window


and this in my view
@Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.getAgent1, new { @class = "AgentName" })

Open in new window

The textboxes which should show the agents name, is filled with a query VS must be running.

What am I doing wrong.

Thanks in advance

The variant that is returned from your LINQ query is most likely a list of objects. Try using info.First().ToString().

I apologise I went back and read your reply properly because I had posted what I had tried.
When I read it again I noticed the .first. and that was the right answer. Thank you

I was struggling with that for hours
