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

Public Sub New (
	items As IEnumerable(Of T)


Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable(Of T)

A DataServiceQuery(Of TElement) or LINQ query that returns an IEnumerable(Of T) collection of objects that are used to initialize the collection.

The IEnumerable(Of T) collection of objects supplied for items is usually a query that returns the items in the collection. However, any IEnumerable(Of T) collection of the correct type can be supplied.

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 raise events to manually report changes to the DataServiceContext.
