Implicit-type lambda expression: is it possible?

Hi all, i was plaing around with LINQ and lambda expressions. I was trying to find duplicated files in my system. After a while a realized that duplicated could mean: - same name - same size and extension - ....   So i wrote this code: DirectoryInfo rootDirectory = ....; var groupFiles = selector => rootDirectory.EnumerateFiles("*", SearchOption.AllDirectories).GroupBy(selector).Select(g => new { g.Key, Info = g, Count = g.Count() }).Where(g => g.Count > 1); var groupsByName = groupFiles(f => f.Name); var groupsBySize = groupFiles(f => new { f.Length, f.Extension}); But i get the following error: Error 1 Cannot assign lambda expression to an implicitly-typed local variable So i tryed to make the type explicit and i realized that is not so easy. So what i'm missing?! IMPORTANT. 'm not tying to have the code working. I can solve the issue by duplicating code (even if i hate to do that) I'm rtying to improve my skills with LINQ and Lambda Expressions. Thanks all!!

Using the generic type 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable' requires '1' type arguments



I'm trying to create a control out of a class I found, and one of the overridden functions is the following:

protected override void PerformDataBinding(IEnumerable data)

However, when I try to build the control I'm getting the error as shown in the subject. I've tried searching, and it seems the signature for the original function matches the one I have, and all other solutions I've seen uses the same signature.

Anyone able to help out?

Bug: Does not change column type from nvarchar to ntext


Scenario: If you create a table with a column of type nvarchar, populate it with some content and try to modify it using the WebMatrix editor, from nvarchar to ntext, it does not display any error message or warning that this is not possible. It silently saves and reverts the change, back to nvarchar. Wasted some hours on this issue as I thought my column was ntext, but in fact was still nvarchar.

Expected behavior: It should change to ntext, or if SQL CE doesn't support that, it should notify the user that no change was applied.
