You can apply the DatabaseAttribute attribute to any strongly typed DataContext declaration.

The DatabaseAttribute attribute is optional. If you use it, you must use the Name property to supply a name.

If you do not apply this attribute and the connection does not specify a name, the database is assumed to have the same name as the DataContext class.

Silverlight for Windows Phone

Supported in: Windows Phone OS 7.1

For a list of the operating systems and browsers that are supported by Silverlight, see Supported Operating Systems and Browsers.

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