C# List of objects, how do I get the sum of a property
I have a list of objects. One property of the individual object entry is amount. How do I get the sum of amount?
If my list was of type double I may be able to do something like this:
double total = myList.Sum();
However I want to something similar to this, yet this syntax is incorrect.
double total = myList.amount.Sum();
How should I go about accomplishing this? I would love to use the Sum function if possible instead of looping through and calculating the value.
double total = myList.Sum(item => item.Amount);
