DataServiceCollection<T> Constructor (IEnumerable<T>, TrackingMode)

Creates a new instance of the DataServiceCollection<T> class based on query execution and with the specified tracking mode.

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

public DataServiceCollection(
	IEnumerable<T> items,
	TrackingMode trackingMode
)

Parameters

items
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<T>

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

trackingMode
Type: System.Data.Services.Client.TrackingMode

A TrackingMode value that indicated whether or not changes made to items in the collection are automatically tracked.

This topic describes new functionality in ADO.NET Data Services that is available as an update to the .NET Framework version 3.5 Service Pack 1. You can download and install the update from the Microsoft Download Center.

By default, automatic change tracking is enabled for a DataServiceCollection<T>. Use this class constructor and supply a value of None for trackingMode to create an instance of DataServiceCollection<T> that uses manual change tracking. When you use manual tracking, you must implement INotifyPropertyChanged and INotifyCollectionChanged and handle the raise events to manually report changes to the DataServiceContext.

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