IDbSet<TEntity> Methods

The IDbSet<TEntity> type exposes the following members.

  Name Description
Public method Add Adds the given entity to the context the Added state. When the changes are being saved, the entities in the Added states are inserted into the database. After the changes are saved, the object state changes to Unchanged.
Public method Attach Attaches the given entity to the context in the Unchanged
Public method Create() Creates a new instance of an entity for the type of this set. This instance is not added or attached to the set. The instance returned will be a proxy if the underlying context is configured to create proxies and the entity type meets the requirements for creating a proxy.
Public method Create<TDerivedEntity>() Creates a new instance of an entity for the type of this set or for a type derived from the type of this set. This instance is not added or attached to the set. The instance returned will be a proxy if the underlying context is configured to create proxies and the entity type meets the requirements for creating a proxy.
Public method Find Uses the primary key value to attempt to find an entity tracked by the context. If the entity is not in the context then a query will be executed and evaluated against the data in the data source, and null is returned if the entity is not found in the context or in the data source. Note that the Find also returns entities that have been added to the context but have not yet been saved to the database.

Public method GetEnumerator() (Inherited from IEnumerable.)
Public method Remove Marks the given entity as Deleted. When the changes are saved, the entity is deleted from the database. The entity must exist in the context in some other state before this method is called.
