Is it possible in the Fluent interface to define a custom type?

This is what I normally do, but I'm wondering if it can be done inline without needing to manipulate the collection a second time

Hi Steve,

Can you please clarify the question? I think that I am not able to understand fully what you want to achieve.

Kind regards,

Something like

var (dyanmic?) person = App.WorkWith().
                                                  ....
                                                  .Get()
                                                  .Select(x => new
                                                      Name = x.FullName,
                                                      Address = x.Address
                                                       );

...so the "person" comes back as a dynamic or anon type in the Fluent query without needing to re-flatten it

Hi Steve,

I think that we already support this. Isn't the below what you want to do:
var newsQuery = from nI in App.WorkWith().NewsItems().Get()
                where nI.Status == Telerik.Sitefinity.GenericContent.Model.ContentLifecycleStatus.Live
                select new Title = nI.GetString("Title") ;

The peculiarity here is the LString type, to be able to serve those properties you need to get their string representation for the current culture.

Best wishes,

Yeah okay so I guess it was more of a Linq question really...

So the from <x> in <y> syntax is the only way to do it

Thanks! :)

Hi Steve,

Well, no. What ever is supported on IQuerieable, see sample below:
var newsQuery = App.WorkWith()
                   .NewsItems()
                   .Where(nI=> nI.Status == Telerik.Sitefinity.GenericContent.Model.ContentLifecycleStatus.Live).Get()
                   .Select(nI => new Title = nI.GetString("Title"), nI.Id);
