Field Value


There are various ways to get an invalid entity. The most common scenario is when an Entity SQL query uses the TREAT operator to interpret an instance of a polymorphic type as a particular type, and the instance in question does not match. (TREAT is similar to the C# as operator). In this case, the query returns an entity that is not valid, and the entity key of the resulting entity is set to EntityNotValidKey.
