    Converter is crashing when trying to convert Telerik code from MVC Grid Demo, SessionProductRepository object

    public static IList<EditableProduct> All()
    IList<EditableProduct> result =
    if (result == null)
    HttpContext.Current.Session["Products"] = result =
    (from product in new NorthwindDataContext().Products
    select new EditableProduct
    ProductID = product.ProductID,
    ProductName = product.ProductName,
    UnitPrice = product.UnitPrice.HasValue ? product.UnitPrice.Value : default(decimal),
    UnitsInStock = product.UnitsInStock.HasValue ? product.UnitsInStock.Value : default(int),
    Discontinued = product.Discontinued,
    LastSupply = DateTime.Today
    return result;

    Hi Cd,

    Thanks for reporting the issue. Unfortunately, the current version of NRefactory that powers the Telerik Converter has some trouble with the LINQ expression syntax. We will research the availability of updates to the open source NRefactory that make be able to address this. In the mean time, the Converter will not be able to convert this specific syntax.

    In the meantime, you might try this other online converter which seems to have some support for LINQ syntax conversion:

    I hope that helps!

    I have same issue. But fortunately, Linq syntax in C# and in VB are the same. So you just need to remove the Linq statement and convert, then put the Linq statement back.

    Thanks for sharing the workaround, Darren. Hopefully this helps others.

    I don't think all LINQ syntax is 100% mappable from VB to C#, but hopefully this help get more of your code easily converted.
