[KnownTypeAttribute("GetKnownConditionValueTypes")] 
[DataContractAttribute(Name="MetadataConditionExpression", Namespace="http://schemas.microsoft.com/xrm/2011/Metadata/Query")] 
public sealed class MetadataConditionExpression : IExtensibleDataObject

The following code snippet from Sample: Query Metadata and Detect Changes shows the use of MetadataConditionExpression to set conditions for Entities and Attributes to return.



     // An array SchemaName values for non-intersect, user-owned entities that should not be returned.
     String[] excludedEntities = {
"WorkflowLog",
"Template",
"CustomerOpportunityRole",
"Import",
"UserQueryVisualization",
"UserEntityInstanceData",
"ImportLog",
"RecurrenceRule",
"QuoteClose",
"UserForm",
"SharePointDocumentLocation",
"Queue",
"DuplicateRule",
"OpportunityClose",
"Workflow",
"RecurringAppointmentMaster",
"CustomerRelationship",
"Annotation",
"SharePointSite",
"ImportData",
"ImportFile",
"OrderClose",
"Contract",
"BulkOperation",
"CampaignResponse",
"Connection",
"Report",
"CampaignActivity",
"UserEntityUISettings",
"IncidentResolution",
"GoalRollupQuery",
"MailMergeTemplate",
"Campaign",
"PostFollow",
"ImportMap",
"Goal",
"AsyncOperation",
"ProcessSession",
"UserQuery",
"ActivityPointer",
"List",
"ServiceAppointment"};

     //A filter expression to limit entities returned to non-intersect, user-owned entities not found in the list of excluded entities.
     MetadataFilterExpression EntityFilter = new MetadataFilterExpression(LogicalOperator.And);
     EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(new MetadataConditionExpression("IsIntersect", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, false));
     EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(new MetadataConditionExpression("OwnershipType", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, OwnershipTypes.UserOwned));
     EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(new MetadataConditionExpression("SchemaName", MetadataConditionOperator.NotIn, excludedEntities));
     MetadataConditionExpression isVisibileInMobileTrue = new MetadataConditionExpression("IsVisibleInMobile", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, true);
     EntityFilter.Conditions.Add(isVisibileInMobileTrue);
	
	...
	
	
 //A condition expresson to return optionset attributes
 MetadataConditionExpression[] optionsetAttributeTypes = new MetadataConditionExpression[] { 
 new MetadataConditionExpression("AttributeType", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, AttributeTypeCode.Picklist),
 new MetadataConditionExpression("AttributeType", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, AttributeTypeCode.State),
 new MetadataConditionExpression("AttributeType", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, AttributeTypeCode.Status),
 new MetadataConditionExpression("AttributeType", MetadataConditionOperator.Equals, AttributeTypeCode.Boolean)
 };

 //A filter expression to apply the optionsetAttributeTypes condition expression
 MetadataFilterExpression AttributeFilter = new MetadataFilterExpression(LogicalOperator.Or);
 AttributeFilter.Conditions.AddRange(optionsetAttributeTypes);

 //A Properties expression to limit the properties to be included with attributes
 MetadataPropertiesExpression AttributeProperties = new MetadataPropertiesExpression() { AllProperties = false };
 AttributeProperties.PropertyNames.Add("OptionSet");
 AttributeProperties.PropertyNames.Add("AttributeType");
	
	...
	
	
 //An entity query expression to combine the filter expressions and property expressions for the query.
 EntityQueryExpression entityQueryExpression = new EntityQueryExpression()
 {

  Criteria = EntityFilter,
  Properties = EntityProperties,
  AttributeQuery = new AttributeQueryExpression()
  {
   Criteria = AttributeFilter,
   Properties = AttributeProperties
  },
  LabelQuery = labelQuery

 };
 
 //Retrieve the metadata for the query without a ClientVersionStamp
 RetrieveMetadataChangesResponse initialRequest = getMetadataChanges(entityQueryExpression, null, DeletedMetadataFilters.OptionSet);
