EntityEntry.GetDatabaseValuesAsync(CancellationToken) Method


Queries the database for copies of the values of the tracked entity as they currently exist in the database. If the entity is not found in the database, then null is returned.

Note that changing the values in the returned dictionary will not update the values in the database.

Multiple active operations on the same context instance are not supported. Use await to ensure that any asynchronous operations have completed before calling another method on this context.
