IConventionPropertyBase Interface

Definition

Base type for navigation and scalar properties.

This interface is used during model creation and allows the metadata to be modified. Once the model is built, IReadOnlyPropertyBase represents a read-only view of the same metadata.

ClrType

Gets the type of value that this property-like object holds.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)
DeclaringEntityType
Obsolete.

Gets the entity type that this property belongs to.

(Inherited from IPropertyBase)
DeclaringType

Gets the type that this property belongs to.

FieldInfo

Gets the FieldInfo for the underlying CLR field for this property-like object. This may be null for shadow properties or if the backing field is not known.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)
IsInModel

Indicates whether this object is in a model, i.e. hasn't been removed from one.

(Inherited from IConventionAnnotatable)
Item[String]

Gets the value of the annotation with the given name, returning null if it does not exist.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyAnnotatable)
Name

Gets the name of this property-like object.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)
PropertyInfo

Gets the PropertyInfo for the underlying CLR property for this property-like object. This may be null for shadow properties or if mapped directly to a field.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)

Methods

AddAnnotation(String, Object, Boolean)

Adds an annotation to this object. Throws if an annotation with the specified name already exists.

(Inherited from IConventionAnnotatable)
AddAnnotations(IEnumerable<IConventionAnnotation>, Boolean)

Adds annotations to an object.

(Inherited from IConventionAnnotatable)
AddRuntimeAnnotation(String, Object)

Adds a runtime annotation to this object. Throws if an annotation with the specified name already exists.

(Inherited from IAnnotatable)
AnnotationsToDebugString(Int32)

Gets the debug string for all annotations declared on the object.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyAnnotatable)
FindAnnotation(String)

Gets the annotation with the given name, returning null if it does not exist.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyAnnotatable)
FindRuntimeAnnotation(String)

Gets the runtime annotation with the given name, returning null if it does not exist.

(Inherited from IAnnotatable)
FindRuntimeAnnotationValue(String)

Gets the value of the runtime annotation with the given name, returning null if it does not exist.

GetAnnotation(String)

Gets the annotation with the given name, throwing if it does not exist.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyAnnotatable)
GetAnnotations()

Gets all annotations on the current object.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyAnnotatable)
GetConfigurationSource()

Returns the configuration source for this property.

GetCurrentValueComparer()

Gets a IComparer<T> for comparing values in tracked IUpdateEntry entries.

(Inherited from IPropertyBase)
GetFieldInfoConfigurationSource()

Returns the configuration source for FieldInfo.

GetFieldName()

Gets the name of the backing field for this property, or null if the backing field is not known.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)
GetGetter()

Gets a IClrPropertyGetter for reading the value of this property.

Note that it is an error to call this method for a shadow property (IsShadowProperty()) since such a property has no associated MemberInfo.

(Inherited from IPropertyBase)
GetIndex()

Gets the property index for this property.

(Inherited from IPropertyBase)
GetMemberInfo(Boolean, Boolean)

Gets the PropertyInfo or FieldInfo that should be used to get or set a value for the given property.

Note that it is an error to call this method for a shadow property (IsShadowProperty()) since such a property has no associated MemberInfo.

(Inherited from IPropertyBase)
GetOrAddRuntimeAnnotationValue<TValue,TArg>(String, Func<TArg,TValue>, TArg)

Gets the value of the runtime annotation with the given name, adding it if one does not exist.

(Inherited from IAnnotatable)
GetPropertyAccessMode()

Gets the PropertyAccessMode being used for this property-like object.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)
GetPropertyAccessModeConfigurationSource()

Returns the configuration source for GetPropertyAccessMode().

GetRuntimeAnnotations()

Gets all the runtime annotations on the current object.

(Inherited from IAnnotatable)
IsIndexerProperty()

Gets a value indicating whether this is an indexer property. An indexer property is one that is accessed through an indexer on the entity class.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)
IsShadowProperty()

Gets a value indicating whether this is a shadow property. A shadow property is one that does not have a corresponding property in the entity class. The current value for the property is stored in the ChangeTracker rather than being stored in instances of the entity class.

(Inherited from IReadOnlyPropertyBase)
RemoveAnnotation(String)

Removes the annotation with the given name from this object.

(Inherited from IConventionAnnotatable)
RemoveRuntimeAnnotation(String)

Removes the given runtime annotation from this object.

(Inherited from IAnnotatable)
SetAnnotation(String, Object, Boolean)

Sets the annotation stored under the given name. Overwrites the existing annotation if an annotation with the specified name already exists.

(Inherited from IConventionAnnotatable)
SetField(FieldInfo, Boolean)
Obsolete.

Sets the FieldInfo for the underlying CLR field that this property should use.

By default, the backing field, if one is found or has been specified, is used when new objects are constructed, typically when entities are queried from the database. Properties are used for all other accesses. This can be changed by calling SetPropertyAccessMode(Nullable<PropertyAccessMode>, Boolean).

SetField(String, Boolean)

Sets the underlying CLR field that this property should use. This may be null for shadow properties or if the backing field for the property is not known.

Backing fields are normally found by convention as described here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=723277. This method is useful for setting backing fields explicitly in cases where the correct field is not found by convention.

By default, the backing field, if one is found or has been specified, is used when new objects are constructed, typically when entities are queried from the database. Properties are used for all other accesses. This can be changed by calling SetPropertyAccessMode(Nullable<PropertyAccessMode>, Boolean).

SetFieldInfo(FieldInfo, Boolean)

Sets the FieldInfo for the underlying CLR field that this property should use.

By default, the backing field, if one is found or has been specified, is used when new objects are constructed, typically when entities are queried from the database. Properties are used for all other accesses. This can be changed by calling SetPropertyAccessMode(Nullable<PropertyAccessMode>, Boolean).

SetOrRemoveAnnotation(String, Object, Boolean)

Sets the annotation stored under the given name. Overwrites the existing annotation if an annotation with the specified name already exists. Removes the existing annotation if null is supplied.

(Inherited from IConventionAnnotatable)
SetPropertyAccessMode(Nullable<PropertyAccessMode>, Boolean)

Sets the PropertyAccessMode to use for this property.

SetRuntimeAnnotation(String, Object)

Sets the runtime annotation stored under the given key. Overwrites the existing annotation if an annotation with the specified name already exists.

(Inherited from IAnnotatable)

SetField(IConventionPropertyBase, String, Boolean)

Sets the underlying CLR field that this property should use. This may be null for shadow properties or if the backing field for the property is not known.

Backing fields are normally found by convention as described here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=723277. This method is useful for setting backing fields explicitly in cases where the correct field is not found by convention.

By default, the backing field, if one is found or has been specified, is used when new objects are constructed, typically when entities are queried from the database.

Gets the name of the backing field for this property, or null if the backing field is not known.

GetGetter(IPropertyBase)

Gets a IClrPropertyGetter for reading the value of this property.

Note that it is an error to call this method for a shadow property (IsShadowProperty(IPropertyBase)) since such a property has no associated MemberInfo.

GetIndex(IPropertyBase)

Gets the property index for this property.

GetMemberInfo(IPropertyBase, Boolean, Boolean)

Gets the PropertyInfo or FieldInfo that should be used to get or set a value for the given property.
