Namespace:  Microsoft.BusinessData.MetadataModel
Assembly:  Microsoft.BusinessData (in Microsoft.BusinessData.dll)


Function GetLobSystems ( _
    wildcardedName As String _
) As INamedLobSystemDictionary
Dim instance As IMetadataCatalog
Dim wildcardedName As String
Dim returnValue As INamedLobSystemDictionary

returnValue = instance.GetLobSystems(wildcardedName)
INamedLobSystemDictionary GetLobSystems(
    string wildcardedName


Return Value

Type: Microsoft.BusinessData.MetadataModel.Collections.INamedLobSystemDictionary
The collection of external systems that match the criteria.


BDC uses '*' as the wildcard character and the '\' as the escape character. For example, to obtain all external systems which have names starting with "C", and ending with "s*12", this method should be called with "C*s\*12". This will return both "Customers*12" and "Cs*12", but not "CratesOf12" or "Cs\*12".
