Examples

The example in this topic is based on the AdventureWorks Sales Model. The example gets the ObjectStateEntry for the given EntityKey from the ObjectStateManager. Then it gets the current value of the SalesOrderHeader.PurchaseOrderNumber property, changes the property's value, and enumerates through the collection of modified properties.

// Specify the order to update.
int orderId = 43680;

using (AdventureWorksEntities context =
    new AdventureWorksEntities())
{
    try
    {
        var order = (from o in context.SalesOrderHeaders
                     where o.SalesOrderID == orderId
                     select o).First();

        // Change the status of an existing order.
        order.Status = 1;

        // Delete the first item in the order.
        context.DeleteObject(order.SalesOrderDetails.First());

        // Create a new SalesOrderDetail object.
        // You can use the static CreateObjectName method (the Entity Framework
        // adds this method to the generated entity types) instead of the new operator:
        // SalesOrderDetail.CreateSalesOrderDetail(1, 0, 2, 750, 1, (decimal)2171.2942, 0, 0,
        //                                         Guid.NewGuid(), DateTime.Today));
