DbContext.Set DbContext.Set DbContext.Set Method

Definition

Overloads

Set(Type) Set(Type) Set(Type)

Returns a non-generic DbSet instance for access to entities of the given type in the context and the underlying store.

Set<TEntity>() Set<TEntity>() Set<TEntity>()

Returns a DbSet<TEntity> instance for access to entities of the given type in the context and the underlying store.

Set(Type) Set(Type) Set(Type)

Returns a non-generic DbSet instance for access to entities of the given type in the context and the underlying store.

[System.Diagnostics.CodeAnalysis.SuppressMessage("Microsoft.Naming", "CA1716:IdentifiersShouldNotMatchKeywords", MessageId="Set")]
public virtual System.Data.Entity.DbSet Set (Type entityType);
abstract member Set : Type -> System.Data.Entity.DbSet
override this.Set : Type -> System.Data.Entity.DbSet
Public Overridable Function Set (entityType As Type) As DbSet

Parameters

entityType
Type Type Type

The type of entity for which a set should be returned.

Returns

A set for the given entity type.

Remarks

Note that Entity Framework requires that this method return the same instance each time that it is called for a given context instance and entity type. Also, the generic DbSet<TEntity> returned by the Set(Type) method must wrap the same underlying query and set of entities. These invariants must be maintained if this method is overridden for anything other than creating test doubles for unit testing. See the DbSet class for more details.

Set<TEntity>() Set<TEntity>() Set<TEntity>()

Type Parameters

TEntity

The type entity for which a set should be returned.
