About System.Linq.Dynamic and the grid

Apr 12, 2014 at 12:47 AM
I am trying for feed the grid from a dynamic linq query and therefore there is no specific entity class to declare as template for the Model.
After several attempts (all failed so far) I couldn't present the grid properly on page.
Any suggestions about how to handle situacions like this? Basically the collection I filled with anonymous objects.
Thanks in advance

What the reason to use anonymous objects?

You can't use collection of anonymous objects in the grid, because you need to specify generic collection type.

First of all. Thanks for your answer.

I need to have an option to hide/show selected columns from the user through a checkbox list.
This list is built upon a subset of all the columns available in the model. (For example the primary key internal id would not be available)
So.. after a user's selection I must execute a linq query based only on the marked columns... The only way ( I think ) is to use dynamic link to achieve this goal
by using a select syntax like this:
list.Select("Field1,Field2"); So... every object in the enumerator do not belong to an specific class.

I hope to make myself clear.

Thanks again for your support
