  • Hi,

    Thank you very much for the series of blogs about lightswitch. These blogs made us to strat development in lightswitch.

    We are developing HTML5 lightswitch application for tablets.

    We are having Sharepoint 2013.

    We have meetinglist where participant is one of the column which can have multiple values.

    In the lightswitch HTML application we want to query the meetingslist to get the list of meetings where the logged in person is a participant.

    Trying diferent ways of writing LINQ query in the _PreprocessQuery method.But nothing works.

                   query = from meetingsList in query

                              from meetingParticipants in meetingsList.Participants

                              where meetingParticipants.Account ==  this.Application.User.Name

                              select meetingsList;

    Gives error. Not Implemented Inner exception message: Can only project the last entity type in the query being translated.

    Tried,

                query = from meetingsList in query

                              from meetingParticipants in meetingsList.Participants

                             where meetingsList.Participants.All(q => q.Account == this.Application.User.Name)

                            select meetingsList;

    Gives error. Not Implemented Inner exception message: The method 'All' is not supported when MaxProtocolVersion is less than '3.0'.

    I posted in MSDN forum. No luck sofar.

    social.msdn.microsoft.com/.../how-to-query-in-lightswitch-to-get-only-meetings-of-logged-in-person

    Please advice how we can achieve the above functionality in lightswitch.

    Thanks in Advance,

  • Hi Abdul,

    You can't change the shape of an entity in the _PreprocessQuery methods. Looks like you're getting help in the forums. That's the best place for questions like these.

    Cheers,

    -Beth

  • Dear Madam,

    Thank you very much for your quick response. I am really sorry for posting my query as a comment in this blog.

    Forum replies were not really helpful so far. I have updated the question in the forum.

    Any help or guidence in this issue would be of great help.

    Thanks in advance,

    Abdul Raheem
