    I need a Dictionary where the key would be an int and the value would be a list of strings.

    I'm using IDictionary<int, IList<string>> or IDictionary<int, IList>.

    But I get an error:

    Error    8    OpenAccess Error: Telerik.OpenAccess: Updating SQL schema failed. No RelationalTypeMapping found for class 'System.Collections.IList' used by field '<value>'. Type is interface. 

    I tried to use List instead of IList, but I get another error saying that List is not supported and that I should use IList.

    Any tips to resolve this problem or any differente approach to do the same thing?

    Hi jr,

    Unfortunately you cannot use an IList or List as a value type for IDictionary fields. Such fields are not supported. I would suggest you to use an instance of the following class instead of a Dictionary:

    public class Data
     private int id;
     public int Id
      get { return id; }
      set { id = value; }
     private IList<string> dataList = new List<String>();
     public IList<string> DataList
      get { return dataList; }
      set { dataList = value; }

    During the Forward Mapping process you should mark the Data class as persistent.
    Hope that helps.

    All the best,
