Classes

AssociationInverseDiscoveryConvention

Convention to detect navigation properties to be inverses of each other when only one pair of navigation properties exists between the related types.

AttributeToColumnAnnotationConvention<TAttribute,TAnnotation>

A general purpose class for Code First conventions that read attributes from .NET properties and generate column annotations based on those attributes.

AttributeToTableAnnotationConvention<TAttribute,TAnnotation>

A general purpose class for Code First conventions that read attributes from .NET types and generate table annotations based on those attributes.

ColumnAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of ColumnAttribute found on properties in the model

ColumnOrderingConvention

Convention to apply column ordering specified via System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.ColumnAttribute or the DbModelBuilder API.

ColumnOrderingConventionStrict

Convention to apply column ordering specified via System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.ColumnAttribute or the DbModelBuilder API. This convention throws if a duplicate configured column order is detected.

ComplexTypeAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of ComplexTypeAttribute found on types in the model.

ComplexTypeDiscoveryConvention

Convention to configure a type as a complex type if it has no primary key, no mapped base type and no navigation properties.

ConcurrencyCheckAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of ConcurrencyCheckAttribute found on properties in the model.

Convention

A convention that doesn't override configuration.

DatabaseGeneratedAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of DatabaseGeneratedAttribute found on properties in the model.

DecimalPropertyConvention

Convention to set precision to 18 and scale to 2 for decimal properties.

DeclaredPropertyOrderingConvention

Convention to move primary key properties to appear first.

ForeignKeyAssociationMultiplicityConvention

Convention to distinguish between optional and required relationships based on CLR nullability of the foreign key property.

ForeignKeyDiscoveryConvention

Base class for conventions that discover foreign key properties.

ForeignKeyIndexConvention

Convention to introduce indexes for foreign keys.

ForeignKeyNavigationPropertyAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of ForeignKeyAttribute found on navigation properties in the model.

ForeignKeyPrimitivePropertyAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of ForeignKeyAttribute found on foreign key properties in the model.

IdKeyDiscoveryConvention

Convention to detect primary key properties. Recognized naming patterns in order of precedence are:

  1. 'Id'
  2. [type name]Id Primary key detection is case insensitive.
IndexAttributeConvention

A convention for discovering IndexAttribute attributes on properties and generating IndexAnnotation column annotations in the model.

InversePropertyAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of InversePropertyAttribute found on properties in the model.

KeyAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of KeyAttribute found on properties in the model.

KeyDiscoveryConvention

Base class for conventions that discover primary key properties.

ManyToManyCascadeDeleteConvention

Convention to add a cascade delete to the join table from both tables involved in a many to many relationship.

MappingInheritedPropertiesSupportConvention

Convention to ensure an invalid/unsupported mapping is not created when mapping inherited properties

MaxLengthAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of MaxLengthAttribute found on properties in the model.

NavigationPropertyNameForeignKeyDiscoveryConvention

Convention to discover foreign key properties whose names are a combination of the dependent navigation property name and the principal type primary key property name(s).

NotMappedPropertyAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of NotMappedAttribute found on properties in the model.

NotMappedTypeAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of NotMappedAttribute found on types in the model.

OneToManyCascadeDeleteConvention

Convention to enable cascade delete for any required relationships.

OneToOneConstraintIntroductionConvention

Convention to configure the primary key(s) of the dependent entity type as foreign key(s) in a one:one relationship.

PluralizingEntitySetNameConvention

Convention to set the entity set name to be a pluralized version of the entity type name.

PluralizingTableNameConvention

Convention to set the table name to be a pluralized version of the entity type name.

PrimaryKeyNameForeignKeyDiscoveryConvention

Convention to discover foreign key properties whose names match the principal type primary key property name(s).

PrimitivePropertyAttributeConfigurationConvention<TAttribute>

Base class for conventions that process CLR attributes found on primitive properties in the model.

PropertyAttributeConfigurationConvention<TAttribute>

Base class for conventions that process CLR attributes found on properties of types in the model.

PropertyMaxLengthConvention

Convention to set a maximum length for properties whose type supports length facets. The default value is 128.

RequiredNavigationPropertyAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of RequiredAttribute found on navigation properties in the model.

RequiredPrimitivePropertyAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of RequiredAttribute found on primitive properties in the model.

SqlCePropertyMaxLengthConvention

Convention to set a default maximum length of 4000 for properties whose type supports length facets when SqlCe is the provider.

StoreGeneratedIdentityKeyConvention

Convention to configure integer primary keys to be identity.

StringLengthAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of StringLengthAttribute found on properties in the model.

TableAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of TableAttribute found on types in the model.

TimestampAttributeConvention

Convention to process instances of TimestampAttribute found on properties in the model.

TypeAttributeConfigurationConvention<TAttribute>

Base class for conventions that process CLR attributes found in the model.

TypeNameForeignKeyDiscoveryConvention

Convention to discover foreign key properties whose names are a combination of the principal type name and the principal type primary key property name(s).

Interfaces

IConceptualModelConvention<T>

A convention that operates on the conceptual section of the model after the model is created.

IConvention

Identifies conventions that can be added to or removed from a DbModelBuilder instance.

IStoreModelConvention<T>

A convention that operates on the database section of the model after the model is created.
