ColumnAttribute::CanBeNull Property

Gets or sets whether a column can contain null values.

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

public:
property bool CanBeNull {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
Default = true.

If you set this value to false, the data in the corresponding column is assumed to be non-null.

NoteNote:

This property is duplicated from the DbType property for convenience. The CreateDatabase method uses only the DbType property. For this reason, you must specify whether a column can contain null values in the DbType property also.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
