Problem: I have a search form that allows users to search for something where the record date falls between 2 dates (mm/dd/yyyy)
All of the records and objects are of type Datetime but all I need to compare is the date parts not the time part.
According to MSDN, the Date property is supported in LINQ however this statement as written will not allow me to append .Date to the lambda part:
The specified type member 'Date' is not supported in LINQ to Entities. Only initializers, entity members, and entity navigation properties are supported.
I am sure this problem comes up a lot - How do I solve it?
I guess I could pad the other date by appending 23:59:59 = 86399 secs to the <= part
Here is the statement. (db is a context object)
model.Contacts = db.Prospects.Where(x => x.DateCreated >= df.Date && x.DateCreated <= dt.Date) .OrderByDescending(x => x.DateCreated) .Take(100) .ToList();
You should use the
