A possible extension / addition to the data project

Hi, this seems like a really nice library, thanks.

The data project returns datasets, however often you may want to convert the data in the datatable to an IList<T> and have some strongly typed object. I use some utility functions which can be used to do just that.

I wonder if it may make sence to add those to this library, either in the data, or as a separate folder as it would take away the need to interate over the rows.

Appreciate that an ORM is a better way, however where one has to use sql for business reasons, then having these utility functions may help.

Mickey...there is already some functionality like this in the Database class. Take a look at the following files for more information:

* {"<root>\src\lib\CommonLibrary.NET\_samples\Example_Database.cs"}

* {"<root>\src\lib\CommonLibrary.NET\Data\RowMapper.cs"}

* {"<root>\src\lib\CommonLibrary.NET\Data\DataQuery.cs"}

The DataQuery.cs contains extension methods to the Database class. They take in a parameter that represents a rowmapper.

Let me know if this is what you were looking for. If you have any other suggestions... please post here.
