The ExecuteFunction method is a helper method that is used to execute stored procedures or functions that are defined in the data source and expressed in the conceptual model. The Entity Data Model tools generate a method for each FunctionImport Element in the conceptual model. These methods call a strongly-typed ExecuteFunction to return a typed ObjectResult(T). For more information, see Application Code using Stored Procedures (Enity Framework).
All parameters for the function are required in the parameters array and all types are checked against the metadata for the import function, including the type of the function itself. a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) values are permitted for CLR value types. Parameter validation is performed by the provider.
