I’m really new to LINQ so I'm trying to figure out how to execute method with lambda expressions.

   public void GetData()
    {
     using(MyClassesDataContext context = new MyClassesDataContext())
                {
                    var problems = (from p in context.Problems select p).Take(10);
                    problems.Select(t => DisplayData(t.Text));
                }
    }
     public void DisplayData(string Text)
            {
            }

I'm getting this error:

The type arguments for method 'System.Linq.Enumerable.Select(System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable, System.Func)' cannot be inferred from the usage. Try specifying the type arguments explicitly.

at this line:

 problems.Select(t => DisplayData(t.Text));

What am I doing wrong?

    Hi Pravesh, 


    I think that if you make the following change to your code, it will work fine:

    problems.Select(t => { DisplayData(t.Text); return true; })
