Examples

The example in this topic is based on the AdventureWorks Sales Model. The example adds new parameters to the collection. It iterates through the ObjectParameterCollection and displays the name, type, and value of each parameter in the collection.

using (AdventureWorksEntities context =
    new AdventureWorksEntities())
{
    string queryString =
        @"SELECT VALUE contact FROM AdventureWorksEntities.Contacts
        AS contact WHERE contact.LastName = @ln 
        AND contact.FirstName = @fn";

    ObjectQuery<Contact> contactQuery =
        new ObjectQuery<Contact>(queryString, context);

    // Add parameters to the collection.
    contactQuery.Parameters.Add(new ObjectParameter("ln", "Adams"));
    contactQuery.Parameters.Add(new ObjectParameter("fn", "Frances"));

    ObjectParameterCollection objectParameterCollection =
        contactQuery.Parameters;

    // Iterate through the ObjectParameterCollection.
    foreach (ObjectParameter result in objectParameterCollection)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("{0} {1} {2}", result.Name,
            result.Value,
            result.ParameterType);
    }
}
Using context As New AdventureWorksEntities()
    Dim queryString As String = "SELECT VALUE contact FROM AdventureWorksEntities.Contacts" & _
            " AS contact WHERE contact.LastName = @ln AND contact.FirstName = @fn"

    Dim contactQuery As New ObjectQuery(Of Contact)(queryString, context)

    ' Add parameters to the collection. 
    contactQuery.Parameters.Add(New ObjectParameter("ln", "Adams"))
    contactQuery.Parameters.Add(New ObjectParameter("fn", "Frances"))

    Dim objectParameterCollection As ObjectParameterCollection = contactQuery.Parameters

    ' Iterate through the ObjectParameterCollection. 
    For Each result As ObjectParameter In objectParameterCollection
        Console.WriteLine("{0} {1} {2}", result.Name, result.Value, result.ParameterType)
    Next
End Using

Represents a query parameter that is passed to an ObjectQuery<T> or a query builder method. For more information, see Query Builder Methods.

Object parameters consist of a name, a type, and a value.

This class cannot be inherited. For more information, see ObjectParameterCollection.
