Namespace:  Microsoft.Data.Edm
Assembly:  Microsoft.Data.Edm (in Microsoft.Data.Edm.dll)


Public Interface IEdmType _
    Inherits IEdmElement
Dim instance As IEdmType
public interface IEdmType : IEdmElement
public interface class IEdmType : IEdmElement
type IEdmType =  
        interface IEdmElement 
public interface IEdmType extends IEdmElement

The IEdmType type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public property TypeKind Gets the kind of this type.


Extension Methods

  Name Description
Public Extension Method Errors Gets the errors, if any, that belong to this element or elements that this element contains. For example errors for a structural type include the errors of the type itself and errors of its declared properties. The method does not analyze elements referenced by this element. For example errors of a property do not include errors from its type. (Defined by ValidationExtensionMethods.)
Public Extension Method IsBad Indicates whether this element contains errors returned by the Errors(IEdmElement) method. (Defined by ValidationExtensionMethods.)
Public Extension Method IsEquivalentTo Indicates a value whether the compared type is semantically equivalent to this type. (Defined by EdmElementComparer.)
Public Extension Method IsOrInheritsFrom Determines whether a type is equivalent to or derived from another type. (Defined by EdmTypeSemantics.)
Public Extension Method IsSpatial Determines whether this definition refers to a spatial type. (Defined by EdmTypeSemantics.)
Public Extension Method Location Gets the location of the specified item. (Defined by ExtensionMethods.)
Public Extension Method ToTraceString Returns the text representation of the current object. (Defined by ToTraceStringExtensionMethods.)
