Parameters

This method has no parameters.

Return Value

An array of constraint errors. If there are no constraint errors, the length of this array is zero.

Remarks

A constraint has access to the settings that are specified by setting declarations in the ConstraintDefinition complex type.

The manager generator (Sdmg.exe) can be used to generate a partial class with properties that correspond to SDM settings.

Add the Evaluate method to the partial class that the manager generator creates.

If an exception is thrown by the manager from the Evaluate method, the exception will be reported as an error in SDM.
