Given a simple inheritance hierarchy:
Person -> Student, Teacher, Staff
Say I have a list of Persons, L.
In that list are some Students, Teachers, and Staff.
Using LINQ and C#, is there a way I could write a method that could retrieve only a particular type of person?
I know I can do something like:
var peopleIWant = L.OfType< Teacher >();
But I want to be able to do something more dynamic. I would like to write a method that will retrieve results for any type of Person I could think of, without having to write a method for every possible type.
