DataServiceCollection(Of T) Constructor (DataServiceContext)

Creates a new instance of the DataServiceCollection(Of T) class that uses the specified DataServiceContext.

Namespace:  System.Data.Services.Client
Assembly:  System.Data.Services.Client (in System.Data.Services.Client.dll)

Public Sub New ( _
	context As DataServiceContext _


Type: System.Data.Services.Client.DataServiceContext
The DataServiceContext used to track changes to objects in the collection.

Use this constructor to create an empty DataServiceCollection(Of T) to which entity objects can be added without executing a query against the service or when an IEnumerable(Of T) is not available.

By default, automatic change tracking is enabled for a DataServiceCollection(Of T). You can create an instance of DataServiceCollection(Of T) that uses manual change tracking when you create an instance using a constructor that enables you to supply a value of None for TrackingMode. When you use manual tracking, you must implement INotifyPropertyChanged and INotifyCollectionChanged and handle the raised events to manually report changes to the DataServiceContext.
