  NameDescription
Public methodChangeObjectStateChanges state of the ObjectStateEntry for a specific object to the specified entityState.
Public methodChangeRelationshipState(Object, Object, String, EntityState)Changes the state of the relationship between two entity objects that is specified based on the two related objects and the name of the navigation property.
Public methodChangeRelationshipState(Object, Object, String, String, EntityState)Changes the state of the relationship between two entity objects that is specified based on the two related objects and the properties of the relationship.
Public methodChangeRelationshipState<TEntity>(TEntity, Object, Expression<Func<TEntity, Object>>, EntityState)Changes the state of the relationship between two entity objects that is specified based on the two related objects and a LINQ expression that defines the navigation property.
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 methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetObjectStateEntriesReturns a collection of ObjectStateEntry objects for objects or relationships with the given state.
Public methodGetObjectStateEntry(EntityKey)Returns an ObjectStateEntry for the object or relationship entry with the specified key.
Public methodGetObjectStateEntry(Object)Returns an ObjectStateEntry for the specified object.
Public methodGetRelationshipManagerReturns the RelationshipManager that is used by the specified 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.)
Public methodTryGetObjectStateEntry(EntityKey, ObjectStateEntry%)Tries to retrieve the corresponding ObjectStateEntry for the object or relationship with the specified EntityKey.
Public methodTryGetObjectStateEntry(Object, ObjectStateEntry%)Tries to retrieve the corresponding ObjectStateEntry for the specified Object.
Public methodTryGetRelationshipManagerReturns the RelationshipManager that is used by the specified object.

  NameDescription
Public eventObjectStateManagerChangedOccurs when entities are added to or removed from the state manager.

ObjectStateManager tracks query results, and provides logic to merge multiple overlapping query results. It also performs in-memory change tracking when a user inserts, deletes, or modifies objects, and provides the change set for updates. This change set is used by the change processor to persist modifications.

This class is typically used by ObjectContext and not directly in applications.

These examples are based on the Adventure Works Sales Model.

The following example gets the ObjectStateManager from the ObjectContext and uses the state manager to access an object in the context.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The following example uses the TryGetObjectStateEntry(EntityKey, ObjectStateEntry%) method on the returned ObjectStateManager to get an object based on its entity key.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
