Remarks

In ASP.NET Dynamic Data applications, the MetaForeignKeyColumn class represents a database column that denotes a one-to-one relationship.

The MetaForeignKeyColumn class represents the column in the table that contains the foreign-key field. However, you can access the parent table object by using the ParentTable property. You can determine if the foreign-key field is a primary key in the table that contains it by using the IsPrimaryKeyInThisTable property.
