ASP.NET (C#) Question query c# error

I was working with ASP.NET and I try to change a label text and get the value from data base.
here is what i do.

First I add database then I create a linq and then I use query to load it but it won't work.

this is query code

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
DataClasses1DataContext db = new DataClasses1DataContext();
var q = from dc in db.topboxes
where == (1)
select dc;
Lmain11.Text = q.ToString();

this is image

and this is what I get as label text

SELECT [t0].[id], [t0].[title], [t0].[dc], [t0].[adminid] FROM [dbo].[topbox] AS [t0] WHERE [t0].[id] = @p0

this image

Can someone please tell me what should I do? It is not the value that I indented to print

and also when I want to get dc from database topbox
where id = 1
I also try code without () in where line.

also my data is not null
enter image description here


Linq queries return an IEnumerable<T> and you want to access a specific item in the collection, to a specific property. Use FirstOrDefault(). (Read here for more about FirstOrDefault/First)

DataClasses1DataContext db = new DataClasses1DataContext();
var q = (from dc in db.topboxes
         where == 1
         select dc).FirstOrDefault();

Lmain11.Text = q?.SomeProperty;

FirstOrDefault might return default(T) if such was not found in query. In your case the default is null. Use C# 6 ?. operator to safely access the desired property

Using on a linq-2-sql query .ToString() will give you the sql that is being generated - Great when you want to see under the hood :)
