Querying data from a custom table inside the umbraco database

Dont use raw SQL

//Get the latest db connection
var ctx = ApplicationContext.DatabaseContext;
var sb = New DatabaseSchemaHelper(ctx.Database, ApplicationContext.ProfilingLogger.Logger, ctx.sqlSyntax);
//Build the query
var query = new Sql().Select(“your cols”).From(“your table”).Where(c => c.SomeProperty).OrderByDescending(c => c.someProperty, ctx.sqlSyntax);
//Run the query
var items – ctx.Database.Fetch(query)
