public string ThisKey { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
Default = Id of the containing class.

For multiple members, use a comma-separated list.

The key is not required to match the primary key or foreign key, but the user-stated cardinality (0-1 for EntityRef<TEntity> or 0-n for EntitySet<TEntity>) is assumed to be true.

	[Association(Name="FK_CustomerCustomerDemo", Storage="_CustomerDemographic", ThisKey="CustomerTypeID", IsForeignKey=true)]
	public CustomerDemographic CustomerDemographic
			return this._CustomerDemographic.Entity;
			CustomerDemographic previousValue = this._CustomerDemographic.Entity;
			if (((previousValue != value) 
						|| (this._CustomerDemographic.HasLoadedOrAssignedValue == false)))
				if ((previousValue != null))
					this._CustomerDemographic.Entity = null;
				this._CustomerDemographic.Entity = value;
				if ((value != null))
					this._CustomerTypeID = value.CustomerTypeID;
					this._CustomerTypeID = default(string);
