Does anybody here have any pointers to screencasts, demos, webcasts for the latest enhancements in Dynamic Data as listed in above link? I'm repeating them here for ready reference :
I have never tried a group by with linq, now I do and I'm stuck.
I try to convert this sql statement to its linq counterpart :
SELECT COUNT(tb_Mailer_Smses.Id) AS [cnt], tb_Mailer_mailing.Id As [Id]
,SUM( CASE WHEN tb_Mailer_smses.DLRStatus = 200 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) As [Delivered]
,SUM(CASE WHEN DLRStatus BETWEEN 300 AND 499 THEN 1 WHEN DLRStatus BETWEEN 800 AND 899 THEN 1 END) AS [Errors]
FROM tb_Mailer_mailing INNER JOIN
tb_Mailer_Smses ON tb_Mailer_mailing.Id = tb_Mailer_Smses.MailingId
WHERE tb_Mailer_mailing.ApplicationId = 1
GROUP BY tb_Mailer_mailing.Id
Is there some one who can me show me the convertion process ?
