No Generic List FindAll Method in Silverlight 2 Beta 2

9/4/2008 11:38:25 AM

Came across a need this morning to use the FindAll method. To my dismay it wasn't there.  I know that Silverlight uses a subset of the .NET Framework but the System.Collections.Generic namespace is definitely there.

You can clearly see that I'm using the namespace in the above image.

ReSharper List.FindAll Error Silverlight 2 Beta 2

Here you can see that ReSharper's background compiling caught it right away. For a second there I thought: "You know, maybe ReSharper is full of shit. This can't be right." I tried to compile to make sure (which was the case with the version 4 nightly builds).

'System.Collections.Generic.List' does not contain a definition for 'FindAll' and no extension method 'FindAll' accepting a first argument of type 'System.Collections.Generic.List' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)
