Microsoft.VisualStudio.Data.Framework Namespace

The Microsoft.VisualStudio.Data.Framework namespace provides the implementation of interfaces under the Microsoft.VisualStudio.Data.Services.SupportEntities namespace.


  Class Description
Public class ClipboardObject Represents a clipboard object for the purpose of data transfer. This object interoperates between DataObject, IDataObject, and IDataObject.
Public class DataAsyncCommand Enables executing data commands in an asynchronous manner.
Public class DataClientObject<T> Represents a client wrapper object that interacts with an underlying provider object.
Public class DataCommand Provides the ability to build and execute data commands of various types against data sources, and to retrieve read-only results or a command status code.
Public class DataConnectionClientService<T> Represents a base implementation of the IVsDataClientObject<T> interface for data connection services.
Public class DataConnectionEquivalencyComparer Provides the ability to compare data connection properties for equivalence.
Public class DataConnectionPromptDialog Represents a dialog box that can prompt the user for information when a data connection is being opened.
Public class DataConnectionProperties Provides support for the parsing and formatting of connection strings containing data connection properties, as well as for strongly typed property storage, custom attributes, and synonyms.
Public class DataConnectionSupport Provides properties and methods that enable you to work directly with connections to a data source.
Public class DataConnectionUIConnector Provides the ability to customize the behavior of opening a connection when in the context of a connection UI (for example, the data connection dialog box).
Public class DataConnectionUIControl Enables a custom UI control for editing connection properties in the Data Connection dialog box.
Public class DataDefaultObject Provides a way to create default instances of provider objects.
Public class DataMappedObject Represents a well-known concept for use by a generic designer.
Public class DataMappedObjectConverter Provides the ability to convert restrictions passed to the mapped object selector into underlying restrictions to pass to the data source–specific type selector, thus allowing mapped selection. Also allows conversion of members of an underlying data object to members of a mapped object, resulting in mapped representations of data objects.
Public class DataMenuCommand Represents an extended MenuCommand class to support status updates.
Public class DataObjectIdentifierConverter Provides the ability to convert data source–specific object identifiers from strings to identifier parts, and from identifier parts to strings.
Public class DataObjectIdentifierResolver Provides the ability to expand and contract an identifier for a specified data object.
Public class DataObjectMemberComparer Allows you to compare two data object identifier parts or properties.
Public class DataObjectSelector Enables getting data source–specific metadata about objects from the object store. The source of the object store is the data object support XML file.
Public class DataObjectSupport Enables you to retrieve an XML stream that describes a set of data object types on a data source, which you can then interpret and manipulate programmatically.
Public class DataParameter Represents a data parameter that is derived from a data source command, or that is passed with a command to a data source.
Public class DataProviderObjectFactory Provides the ability to create DDEX provider implementations of support entities.
Public class DataReader Provides the ability to expose data from any data source.
Public class DataSiteableObject<T> Provides a simplified way to support communication between an object and its site in the container.
Public class DataSiteableServiceProvider<T> Combines the functionality of an IVsDataSiteableObject<T> object and a ServiceProvider object. This implementation of the IVsDataSiteableObject<T> and IServiceProvider interfaces allows access to services while supporting communication to a site.
Public class DataSourceInformation Allows you to retrieve well-defined information about a specified data source in the form of properties constructed as name/value pairs.
Public class DataSourceSpecializer Provides the ability to specialize the behavior of a DDEX provider, depending on the data source to which it is connected.
Public class DataSourceVersionComparer Provides the means to compare two data-source-specific version strings.
Public class DataSpecifier Represents a utility class that provides the ability to parse and resolve data specifiers.
Public class DataSupport Represents the base class for all classes that provide data support XML.
Public class DataTransaction Enables transaction-processing, which allows you to commit or roll back a series of related operations as a batch.
Public class DataViewBrowseObject Represents a dynamic browse object for a node in a data view hierarchy.
Public class DataViewBrowseObjectProvider Allows you to retrieve a specialized browse object for a specified node in a given data view.
Public class DataViewCommandProvider Provides the ability to implement commands, specifically custom commands, for nodes in a data view.
Public class DataViewDocumentProvider Provides the ability to open a document, get a document moniker, and perform other actions pertaining to a document in the Visual Studio Sever Explorer.
Public class DataViewMenuCommand Represents a base implementation for menu commands offered by high-level or shortcut menus as part of a data view hierarchy.
Public class DataViewPropertyDescriptor Represents a dynamic property for a node in a data view hierarchy.
Public class DataViewSelectionMenuCommand Provides the ability to determine the status of a shortcut menu command when multiple nodes are selected in Server Explorer for a specific data connection, and to invoke the command.
Public class DataViewSupport Enables retrieving an XML stream that provides a description of one or more data views.
Public class DSRefBuilder Allows you to create a Data Source Reference (DSRef) object that identifies one or more data objects.
Public class DSRefClipboardObject Provides the ability to create and read a clipboard object used for drag-and-drop operations between Server Explorer and the data designer. The DSRefClipboardObject object contains identifying information about the underlying object that is transferred.
Public class NameAttribute Specifies the string literal name of a given connection property when specified in a connection string.
Public class ServiceProvider Provides an object that can proffer services by using both the managed and unmanaged IServiceProvider interfaces.
Public class SynonymsAttribute Provides a comma-delimited list of connection property names that are synonymous with a primary connection property name.


  Delegate Description
Public delegate DataSpecifier.Resolver Provides a mechanism to dispatch the call for resolving the data specifier to the appropriate method.
