Building a dynamic anonymous type Select statement using Linq

dynamic-linq linq


//list is IEnumeable NOT IEnumerable<T>

var IEnumerable<object> = list.AsQueryable().Cast<object>().Select(x=> .........);

really has a POCO class called Anonymous behind it, for example.


In the choose statement, I want the following:

AccountId = x.GetType().GetProperty("AccountId").GetValue(x,null),
Name = x.GetType().GetProperty("Name").GetValue(x,null)

The SecretInfo Column, which I may supply as a hardcoded string named "SecretInfo," is something else I wish to conceal. Basically, the Anonymous type must be used to build the choose list dynamically. How is this possible? Anyone who plays the Linq who can assist me?

Your question's resolution depends on type anonymous. You may use the code that follows:

var result = list.AsQueryable().Cast<Info>().Select(x => new
        AccountId = x.AccountId,
        Name = x.Name

You are developing an anonymous type in the select statement with two implicitly typed read-only fields within the braces that follow the new keyword (AccountId and Name). Hope this is useful!

I'd like to share the following passage from the related article:

Anonymous types typically are used in the select clause of a query expression to return a subset of the properties from each object in the source sequence. For more information about queries, see LINQ Query Expressions (C# Programming Guide).
