choose certain fields from dbsett>

entity-framework poco

Question

I am using EF4.1, and for performance issues I need to select only a few fields from a DbSet which is mapped to a view on the sql server.

Any ideas about how to do that?

so selecting fields from Customer would return the below error.

var result = context.Customers.Select(c => new Customer{ Name = c.Name,Age = c.Age}).ToList();

The entity or complex type 'Customer' cannot be constructed in a LINQ to Entities query.

Popular Answer

Assuming your mapping to the view is setup correctly and where Customers is a DbSet<Customer> property on your Context.

var result = context.Customers.Select(c => new {c.Name,c.Age, c.AnyOtherProperty});

Edit: To show using your own class rather than an anonymous type.

var result = context.Customers.Select(c => new YourClassName{c.Name,c.Age, c.AnyOtherProperty});
