Convert ObservableCollection to List<myType>


  • Posted this in a general Silverlight Forum before I saw this one:


    I am currently working on my first test using SL 4 and a service to return data:

    I am reading an XML file --> formatting into a class type RSSItems, however when the data is returned I get an ObservableCollection<ToadWebservice.RSSItem>.  I cannot seem to figure out how to get it into the type I need. <ToadReader.RSSItem>.

    Any ideas?  This is my first attempt with this type of project and I am unsure if I am even going down the right path.


        List<RSSItem> myFeeds = e.Result;



    Get an error on the conversion of e.Result to List<RSSItem>.


    Just A Little Frustrated...

  • Thanks for the response:

    However i am getting the following error, on I seem to not be able to get around:

    Cannot convert type 'ToadReader.ToadWebService.RSSItem' to 'ToadReader.RSSItem'


    I am not sure if I quite understand the difference why one is ToadReader.ToadWebService.RSSItem and the other just ToadReader.RSSItem.  This is the point where I have remained stuck.

    Any other ideas/suggestions/insight?
