Specifies whether to delay-load one-to-many or one-to-one relationships.
Assembly: System.Data.Linq (in System.Data.Linq.dll)
When the code accesses one of these relationships, null is returned if the relationship is one-to-one, and an empty collection is returned if it is one-to-many. The relationships can still be filled by setting the LoadOptions property.
The main scenario for this property is to enable you to extract a piece of the object model and send it out (for example, to a Web service).
If this property is set to false after a query has been executed, an exception is thrown. See the Valid Modes section below for more information.
Deferred loading requires object tracking. Only the following three modes are valid:
Both are set to true. This is the default.
The flags may not be changed after a query has been executed. Any change after the execution of the first query that uses that DataContext throws an exception.
