public static readonly EntityKey EntityNotValidKey

Field Value

Type: System.Data.EntityKey

There are various ways to get an invalid entity. The most common scenario is when an Entity SQL query uses the  operator to interpret an instance of a polymorphic type as a particular type, and the instance in question does not match. ( is similar to the C# as operator). In this case, the query returns an entity that is not valid, and the entity key of the resulting entity is set to EntityNotValidKey
