DataContext.Transaction Property


Gets or sets a local transaction for the .NET Framework to use to access the database.

 property System::Data::Common::DbTransaction ^ Transaction { System::Data::Common::DbTransaction ^ get(); void set(System::Data::Common::DbTransaction ^ value); };
public System.Data.Common.DbTransaction Transaction { get; set; }
member this.Transaction : System.Data.Common.DbTransaction with get, set
Public Property Transaction As DbTransaction

Property Value


The transaction object used by the DataContext when executing queries and commands.


The primary scenario for this property is interoperability with relational ADO.NET code. For example, use this property when you write your own Create/Update/Delete methods to set the Transaction property on the ADO Command object.

Note the following:

  • If this property has not been explicitly set, the getter returns null.

  • If the code is executing in a Transaction context, setting this property throws an exception.

  • If this property is set and a new Transaction is opened, an exception is thrown when a query or update is executed.
