Extension methods cannot be dynamically dispatched ...

Hello,

On a class library I have the following extension:

public static Int32 Execute(this IDbConnection cnn, String sql, dynamic param = null)

I am trying to expose this extension through a method on my class:

public class Repository : IRepository {

private IDbConnection _connection;

public Repository(IDbConnection connection) {
_connection = connection;
} // Repository

public Int32 Execute(String sql, dynamic param = null) {
return _connection.Execute(sql, param);
} // Execute

} // Repository

But I keep getting the following error:

'System.Data.IDbConnection' has no applicable method named 'Execute' but appears to have an extension method by that name. Extension methods cannot bedynamically dispatched. Consider casting the dynamic arguments or calling the extension method without the extension method syntax.

I tried to change my code in a few ways but no luck ...

Any idea of how to solve this?

Thank You,
Miguel

The error message has two suggestions.

But I think you should go a third route.

I am highly skeptical about you really needing dynamic, so I
would suggest you try whether object or maybe object[] / List<object>
would work just as well for you.

Yes, in fact for a 3.0 version there is object[] ...

But I was able so solve it. I just need to use something like:

SqlMapper.Execute( ... )

I forgot that ...

If SqlMapper is the class of your extension method then that is
one of the suggestions in the error message.

But even though you now have gotten it to compile, then
I still can not see any reason for using dynamic.
