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

public struct Link<T>

Type Parameters


The type of the elements in the deferred source.

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.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
