Good Day

i have a service that i previously used the "Location" type , so i could not serialize that type , so i converted it to a string so that i can pass the data from the service to the View. On the other side in the Viewmodel i have a property that is using a "Location" Type and now i am trying to convert the string to location and the Casting does not look like it works.

m.Location = (Telerik.Windows.Controls.Map.Location)lstIncidents[1];


 
Cannot convert type
string to 'Telerik.Windows.Controls.Map.Location'

Hi Vuyiswa Maseko,

Casting in code behind don't work for most of the string->object conversions. As for the Location type you should use Parse static method of the Location class:

m.Location = Telerik.Windows.Controls.Map.Location.Parse(lstIncidents[1]);

Thanks for the Reply. 

I resolved the problem by using it as "Object" datatype in the Service and when i get to the view i made it a Location Type and it worked.
