How to create a Linq To Entities expression


HI, I'm using Linq To Entities and I'd like to convert this

return db.Products .Where(p => p.idUser.Equals(id) && p.Category.Genre.Any(g => g.visible))

into something like

Func<Genre, bool> expr = g => g.visible return db.Products .Where(p => p.idUser.Equals(id) && p.Category.Genre.Any(expr))

so I can add more complexity with something like this

Func<Genre, bool> expr = g => g.visible expr += g => g.position < 5

But I always have an 'internal 1025 error .NET'. Can anyone help me, please? Thanks.


You need to use Expressions, not delegates. You can use the <a href="http://www.albahari.com/nutshell/predicatebuilder.aspx" rel="nofollow">PredicateBuilder</a> class by Joseph Albahari to build your predicate dynamically :

Expression<Func<Genre, bool>> expr = g => g.visible; expr = expr.And(g => g.position < 5);
