How do I loop through and display the formatted content of an entity list using a while loop.
There's more than one item in sample below.

For example:
NLAMEMEntities2 oe = new NLAMEMEntities2();
 oe.Test5.ToList().Where(x => x.t5ID == int.Parse(TextBox4.Text.ToString())).First();

I have sample code where data is uploaded to a combobox based on data from Entity Framework Table:
 
// CLASS LEVEL DATA VARIABLE
WSCGSoftwareEntities db = new WSCGSoftwareEntities();

 ' LOAD CUSTOMER EE
private void LoadCustomersEE()
{
	List<initialRowCust> Cs = (from c in db.tblCustomersorderby 
                c.FirstName + " " + c.LastNamenew initialRowCust 
                {
		    CustName = c.FirstName + " " + c.LastName,
		    CustomerID = c.CustomerID
	       }).ToList();

	cmbCustomerEE.DataSource = null;
	cmbCustomerEE.DataSource = Cs;
	cmbCustomerEE.DisplayMember = "CustName";
	cmbCustomerEE.ValueMember = "CustomerID";

}

The reason I posted, thinking you maybe wanting to cycle trough records possibly to populate a drop box.  If not, then it possibly could be used to do what you are asking for. Please tell me more about what is that you want to accomplish.

In this example, the combobox is uploaded such that displays the customer FName_LName combination. But, upon click, it gives you customer ID to help with your search.

But, if you want to cycle through names, then replace lines 15 - 18 with:

foreach (void name in Cs)
{
      MessageBox.Show(name.CustName);
}

Hi  bmanmike39;

I think this should do what you want.

var enumerator = oe.GetEnumerator();

while( enumerator.MoveNext() )
{
    [DataType] currentEntity = enumerator.Current;
    // Where [DataType] is of the type in the collection.
    // Your code here using the current entity from the collection
}

in line 8, need to add single space to change

List<initialRowCust> Cs = (from c in db.tblCustomersorderby

to

List<initialRowCust> Cs = (from c in db.tblCustomers orderby
