I've got the following setup:
 
class A
{
   ObservableCollection Bs {get;set;}
}
class B
{
   string Title {get; set;}
   ObservableCollection<C> Cs {get;set;}
}
class C
{
   string Title {get;set;}
}
 
I'm trying to get a list of unique Title's in the entire of A.
So far I've got
   var bTitles = A.Bs.Select(f=> f.Title).Distinct();
   var cTitles = A.Bs.Select(f=> f.Cs).Select(h=> h.Select(g=> g.Title));
 
   return bTitles.Union(cTitles);
 
But that's not right, I can't 'flatten' cTitles, at least I think that's what I've got wrong.

Solution 1

var titles = A.Bs
                .Select(b => b.Title)
                .Union(A.Bs.SelectMany(b => b.Cs, (b, c) => c.Title))
                .Distinct();
