EntityKey Constructor (String, IEnumerable<KeyValuePair<String, Object>>)

Initializes a new instance of the EntityKey class with an entity set name and a generic KeyValuePair collection.

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

public EntityKey(
	string qualifiedEntitySetName,
	IEnumerable<KeyValuePair<string, Object>> entityKeyValues
)

Parameters

qualifiedEntitySetName
Type: System.String

A String that is the entity set name qualified by the entity container name.

entityKeyValues
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<KeyValuePair<String, Object>>

A generic KeyValuePair collection.

Each key/value pair has a property name as the key and the value of that property as the value. There should be one pair for each property that is part of the EntityKey. The order of the key/value pairs is not important, but each key property should be included. The property names are simple names that are not qualified with an entity type name or the schema name.

This example is based on the Adventure Works Sales Model. The example shows you how to create and use an EntityKey.
