TableAttribute.Name Property

Gets or sets the name of the table or view.

Namespace:  System.Data.Linq.Mapping
Assembly:  System.Data.Linq (in System.Data.Linq.dll)

public string Name { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
By default, the value is the same as the name of the class.

If you do not specify a name by using Name, the table name is assumed to be the same as the class name.

NoteNote

You can optionally use a schema name to qualify the table name (for example, Schema3.Table5). By default, the token to the left of the first period in the Name string is considered to be the schema name, and the rest to be the table name.

In the following example, the default table name, Customer, is changed to Customers.

[Table(Name = "Customers")]
public class Customer
{
    // ...
}
