public sealed class ConcurrencyCheckAttribute : Attribute

The ConcurrencyCheckAttribute type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public method ConcurrencyCheckAttribute Initializes a new instance of the ConcurrencyCheckAttribute class.



  Name Description
Public method Equals Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Match When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)



You apply the ConcurrencyCheckAttribute attribute to a property to specify that the property serves as an indicator of whether the data record in the Silverlight application is still current with the data record in the data source. The value of the property should be compared to the value of the property in the data source before updating the data record. If the values are not equal, the data record in the data source has been changed by another process and the update should not overwrite the changed values.
