EntityCodeGenerator Class

Generates object context and entity classes (object layer code) from conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) files. Starting with Entity Framework version 4, an ObjectContext class for a specific model contains properties of type ObjectSet that represent the model’s entity sets.

  NameDescription
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGenerateCode(String, String)Creates a source code file that contains the object layer code generated from the specified conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) file.
Public methodGenerateCode(XmlReader, TextWriter)Generates object layer code using the conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) specified in the XmlReader object, and outputs the generated code to a TextWriter.
Public methodGenerateCode(String, String, IEnumerable<String>)Creates a source code file that contains object layer code generated from the specified conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) file. The list of schema file paths is used to resolve any references contained in the CSDL file.
Public methodGenerateCode(String, String, Version)Creates a source code file that contains the object layer code generated from the specified conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) file. Note that the targetEntityFrameworkVersion parameter uses internal Entity Framework version numbers as described in the EntityFrameworkVersions class.
Public methodGenerateCode(XmlReader, TextWriter, IEnumerable<XmlReader>)Generates object layer code based on the conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) specified in the XmlReader object, then outputs the generated code to a TextWriter. A list of XmlReader objects is used to resolve any references that are contained in the CSDL.
Public methodGenerateCode(XmlReader, TextWriter, Version)Generates object layer code using the conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) specified in the XmlReader object, and outputs the generated code to a TextWriter. Note that the targetEntityFrameworkVersion parameter uses internal EntityFramework version numbers as described in the EntityFrameworkVersions class.
Public methodGenerateCode(String, String, IEnumerable<String>, Version)Creates a source code file that contains object layer code generated from the specified conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) file. The list of schema file paths is used to resolve any references contained in the CSDL file. Note that the targetEntityFrameworkVersion parameter uses internal EntityFramework version numbers as described in the EntityFrameworkVersions class.
Public methodGenerateCode(XmlReader, TextWriter, IEnumerable<XmlReader>, Version)Creates a source code file that contains the object layer code generated from the specified conceptual schema definition language (CSDL) file. Note that the targetEntityFrameworkVersion parameter uses internal Entity Framework version numbers as described in the EntityFrameworkVersions class.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
