DbConfiguration.SetTableExistenceChecker(String, TableExistenceChecker) DbConfiguration.SetTableExistenceChecker(String, TableExistenceChecker) Method


Call this method from the constructor of a class derived from DbConfiguration to register a database table existence checker for a given provider.

protected internal void SetTableExistenceChecker (string providerInvariantName, System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.TableExistenceChecker tableExistenceChecker);
member this.SetTableExistenceChecker : string * System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.TableExistenceChecker -> unit

This method is provided as a convenient and discoverable way to add configuration to the Entity Framework. Internally it works in the same way as using AddDependencyResolver to add an appropriate resolver for DbProviderServices and also using AddDefaultResolver to add the provider as a default resolver. This means that, if desired, the same functionality can be achieved using a custom resolver or a resolver backed by an Inversion-of-Control container.
