You can access every item in the ADO.NET metadata hierarchy as a strongly typed property bag. The EdmType class provides properties called Name, NamespaceName, and so on. The EdmType class also inherits a MetadataProperties property, which is a collection of MetadataProperty objects. When the application creates an instance of the EdmType class, the MetadataProperties property automatically contains a collection of MetadataProperty objects for Name property, NamespaceName property, and so on.
