I have one query that does a count/group by where I don't need a parameter (there is no where clause).
What is the syntax to run a parameterless query with dapper?
var _results = _conn.Query<strongType>("Select Count(columnA) as aCount, ColumnB, ColumnC from mytable group by ColumnB, ColumnC");
does not work.
I've tried it a few different ways but I still keep getting "ArgumentNullException was unhandled by user code".
Tried to figure it out myself, searched all over and I'm giving up. Thanks in advance.
Edit: Below is the line of code from SqlMapper.cs that throws the error. It's line 1334
il.Emit(OpCodes.Newobj, typeof(T).GetConstructor(BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.NonPublic, null, Type.EmptyTypes, null));

Mapping a single result back works just fine:
var a = cnn.Query<int>("select 1").Single() // a is 1
You may face trouble if somehow your query returns no results, for example:
select count(Id) from ( select top 0 1 as Id, 2 as Title ) as X group by Title
return 0 results, so doing a
Single on an empty result set is not going to work.
