Lambda expression to get a list of members from a list of objects?
I don't even know how to come up with a good title for this question.
I am using VS 2008. I have a little user control that has a method whose argument is of type List<String>. I have a list of objects (call it MyObjectList, of type List<MyObject>) whose definition includes one String member (call it myString). I want to get a List<String> that contains all of the myString strings from MyObjectList. Of course, I can write a little loop that walks through MyObjectList, adding every myString value to a List<String> object. But I am trying to be as modern as I can. With the advent of lambda expressions, I think there must be a better way to do this. Is there? If so, how? And is the answer any different in VS 2012?
Thanks very much!
