Link<'T> Structure

 
System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Used to enable deferred loading of individual properties (similar to EntityRef<'TEntity>).

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

[<Sealed>]
type Link<'T> = struct end

Type Parameters

T

The type of the elements in the deferred source.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodLink<'T>('T)

Initializes a new instance of the Link<'T> structure by referencing the value of the property.

System_CAPS_pubmethodLink<'T>(IEnumerable<'T>)

Initializes a new instance of the Link<'T> structure by referencing the source.

System_CAPS_pubmethodLink<'T>(Link<'T>)

Initializes a new instance of the Link<'T> structure by copying the internal state from another Link<'T> instance.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyHasLoadedOrAssignedValue

Specifies whether the Link<'T> has loaded or assigned a value.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyHasValue

Gets a value that specifies whether the source has a value.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyValue

Gets or sets the value assigned to or loaded by the Link<'T>.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Indicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal.(Inherited from ValueType.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from ValueType.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns the fully qualified type name of this instance.(Inherited from ValueType.)

If you assign a deferred source (IEnumerable<'T>) to Link<'T>, Link<'T> loads the value by enumerating the source the first time the Value property is accessed.
