Remarks

You apply the UpdateAttribute attribute to a method to indicate that the method is an update method, or to specify certain values for the update method. If your method matches the expected method signature for an update method, you do not have to apply the UpdateAttribute. The RIA Services framework will infer that a method with the expected update signature should be treated as an update. You apply the IgnoreAttribute to a method to prevent the RIA Services framework from generating a domain operation for that method.

The following shows the expected signature for the update method:

Return value

None

Parameters

Entity

Name Prefix

Update, Change, or Modify

Attribute

[Update] (C#)

-or-

<Update()> (Visual Basic)

Example

public void UpdateProduct(Product product) (C#)

-or-

Public Sub UpdateProduct(ByVal product As Product) (Visual Basic)

You set the UsingCustomMethod property to true to indicate that the update method is a named update method. You use a named update method when you need to add a custom operation that does not follow a simple modification pattern.

The following shows the expected signature for a named update method:

Return value

None

Parameters

Entity

Any number of other parameters

Name Prefix

Any name other than one starting with the prefixes for Insert, Update, or Delete

Attribute

[Update(UsingCustomMethod=true] (C#)

-or-

<Update(UsingCustomMethod:=True)> (Visual Basic)

Example

[Update(UsingCustomMethod=true]

public void DiscountProduct(Product product, int percentage) (C#)

-or-

<Update(UsingCustomMethod:=True)> _

Public Sub DiscountProduct(ByVal product As Product, ByVal percentage As Integer) (Visual Basic)

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
