c# Cannot use ref or out parameter inside an anonymous method

Error      1      Cannot use ref or out parameter 'c' inside an anonymous method, lambda expression, or query expression      E:\strucccc\strucccc\Program.cs      80      76      strucccc


Hello,

i have a problem with my code in c# if someone could help resolve my problem.

In a function i am parsing an Xml file and saving it to a struct.

Then i try to retreive some info from said struct with specific node id and my code fails with

"Cannot use ref or out parameter 'c' inside an anonymous method, lambda expression, or query expression"

Here is my code:
public void XmlParser(ref Point a, ref Point b, ref Point c)
         {

             XDocument xdoc = XDocument.Load(XmlDirPath);

             var coordinates = from r in xdoc.Descendants("move")
                               where int.Parse(r.Attribute("id").Value) == c.NodeID  // !! here is the error !!
                     
                               select new
                               {
                                   X = r.Element("x").Value,
                                   Y = r.Element("y").Value,
                                   Z = r.Element("z").Value, 
                                   nID = r.Attribute("id").Value

                               };

             foreach (var r in coordinates)
             {
                 c.x = float.Parse(r.X1, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
                 c.y = float.Parse(r.Y1, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
                 c.z = float.Parse(r.Z1, CultureInfo.InvariantCulture);
                 c.NodeID = Convert.ToInt16(r.nID);
             }
             
         }

		 
	 public struct Point
        {
            public  float x;
            public  float y;
            public  float z;
            public  int   NodeID;
        }

I cannot test right now, but I would do this:

public void XmlParser(ref Point a, ref Point b, ref Point c)
         {
             int cNodeID = c.NodeID
             XDocument xdoc = XDocument.Load(XmlDirPath);

             var coordinates = from r in xdoc.Descendants("move")
                               where int.Parse(r.Attribute("id").Value) == cNodeID
 ....

Thank you!

Its var i = c.NodeiD but you were on point.
