DataContext.Transaction Property

Sets a local transaction for the .NET Framework to use to access the database.

Namespace:  System.Data.Linq
Assembly:  System.Data.Linq (in System.Data.Linq.dll)

public DbTransaction Transaction { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Data.Common.DbTransaction
The transaction object used by the DataContext when executing queries and commands.

The primary scenario for this property is interoperability with relational ADO.NET code. For example, use this property when you write your own Create/Update/Delete methods to set the Transaction property on the ADO Command object.

Note the following:

  • If this property has not been explicitly set, the getter returns null.

  • If the code is executing in a Transaction context, setting this property throws an exception.

  • If this property is set and a new Transaction is opened, an exception is thrown when a query or update is executed.
