ColumnTypeCasingConvention Class

Entity Framework 5.0

Convention to convert any data types that were explicitly specified, by using data annotations or the DbModelBuilder API, to be lowercase.


Namespace:  System.Data.Entity.ModelConfiguration.Conventions
Assembly:  EntityFramework (in EntityFramework.dll)

public sealed class ColumnTypeCasingConvention : IConvention

The ColumnTypeCasingConvention type exposes the following members.

Public methodEquals (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCode (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToString (Inherited from Object.)

The default SqlClient provider is case sensitive and requires data types to be lowercase. This convention allows the ColumnAttribute and DbModelBuilder API to be case insensitive.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
