ColumnAttribute.IsDbGenerated Property

Gets or sets whether a column contains values that the database auto-generates.

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

public bool IsDbGenerated { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
Default = false.

IsDbGenerated members are synchronized immediately after the row of data is inserted, and the members are available after SubmitChanges is completed.


If the column holds primary key values and you designate IsDbGenerated as true, you should also add the DbType property by using the IDENTITY modifier.

	[Column(Storage="_OrderID", AutoSync=AutoSync.OnInsert, DbType="Int NOT NULL IDENTITY", IsPrimaryKey=true, IsDbGenerated=true)]
	public int OrderID
			return this._OrderID;
			if ((this._OrderID != value))
				this._OrderID = value;
