            this.OnFirstNameChanging(value);
            this.SendPropertyChanging();
            this._FirstName = value;
            this.SendPropertyChanged("FirstName");
            this.OnFirstNameChanged();
        }
    }
}
<Column(Storage:="_FirstName", DbType:="NVarChar(10) NOT NULL", CanBeNull:=false)>  _
Public Property FirstName() As String
    Get
        Return Me._FirstName
    End Get
    Set
        If ((Me._FirstName = value)  _
                    = false) Then
            Me.OnFirstNameChanging(value)
            Me.SendPropertyChanging
            Me._FirstName = value
            Me.SendPropertyChanged("FirstName")
            Me.OnFirstNameChanged
        End If
    End Set
End Property

Remarks

Use this property to specify the exact text that defines the column in a Transact-SQL table declaration. Specify the DbType property only if you plan to use CreateDatabase to create an instance of the database.

The default value of DbType is inferred from the member type. For more information, see SQL-CLR Type Mapping.
