See more: SQL LINQ Parameter
Hi everyone,

Is it possible to transform a query with parameters into LinQ to SQL (keeping the parameters in tact)?

This is what I have so far in plain SQL.

SqlCeCommand trans_comm = new SqlCeCommand("SELECT DISTINCT transmission_type FROM vehicles WHERE make = @make AND model_name = @model AND model_year = @model_year AND engine_type = @engine_type", conn);
            trans_comm.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
            trans_comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@make", makeComboBox.SelectedItem);
            trans_comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@model", modelComboBox.SelectedItem);
            trans_comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@model_year", yearComboBox.SelectedItem);
            trans_comm.Parameters.AddWithValue("@engine_type", engineComboBox.SelectedItem);

I want to transform this to the equivalent LinQ to SQL syntax, keeping parameters in tact, if possible. My main concern is that I want to prevent SQL injection, if possible.

This code works fine as is, right now.

Thanks everyone!

With LINQ to Entities, it'd look like this (the context variable would be an instance of your entity model):
var cars = (
  from car in context.vehicles
    car.make == makeComboBox.SelectedItem &&
    car.model == modelComboBox.SelectedItem &&
    car.model_year == yearComboBox.SelectedItem &&
    car.engine_type == engineComboBox.SelectedItem
  select new
    transmission_type = car.transmission_type
I've not played with LINQ to SQL, but I imagine it's very similar to LINQ to Entities.
