    This is my first attempt to read some data from an Azure table in my MVC app. I added only one property to my Azure table called UserId which is of Integer type.

    Looks like my code retrieves the record with the proper value. I just haven't been able to grab the value. Here's my code:

    TableResult retrievedResult = table.Execute(retrieveOperation);

    How do I grab the property value from here and put it into an integer variable?

    property "Result" of retrievedResult should contains the value you are looking for.

    For example:

    TableOperation retrieveOperation = TableOperation.Retrieve<Person>("1","1");
    // Execute the retrieve operation.
    TableResult retrievedResult = table.Execute(retrieveOperation);


    retrievedResult contains object of type Person.

    I.e. Person is defined in this way:

        public class Person: TableEntity
            public Person(string partitionKey, string rowKey, string firstName, string lastName, double salary)
                :base(partitionKey, rowKey)
                FirstName = firstName;
                LastName = lastName;
                Salary = salary;
            public Person():base() { }
            public string FirstName { get; set; }
            public string LastName { get; set; }
            public double Salary { get; set; }
