TableAttribute.Name Property


Gets or sets the name of the table or view.

 property System::String ^ Name { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
public string Name { get; set; }
member this.Name : string with get, set
Public Property Name As String

Property Value


By default, the value is the same as the name of the class.


[Table(Name = "Customers")]
public class Customer
    // ...
<Table(Name:="Customers")> _
Public Class Customer
    ' ...
End Class


If you do not specify a name by using Name, the table name is assumed to be the same as the class name.


You can optionally use a schema name to qualify the table name (for example, Schema3.Table5). By default, the token to the left of the first period in the Name string is considered to be the schema name, and the rest to be the table name.

In the following example, the default table name, Customer, is changed to Customers.
