EdmScalarPropertyAttribute Class

EdmScalarPropertyAttribute Class


Attribute that indicates that the property represents a scalar property.

Namespace:   System.Data.Objects.DataClasses
Assembly:  System.Data.Entity (in System.Data.Entity.dll)


public sealed class EdmScalarPropertyAttribute : EdmPropertyAttribute


Initializes a new instance of the EdmScalarPropertyAttribute class.


Gets or sets the value that indicates whether the property is part of the entity key.


Gets or sets the value that indicates whether the property can have a null value.


When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The IsNullable and EntityKeyProperty properties cannot both be true because key members cannot be null.

The EdmScalarPropertyAttribute links a scalar property on a data class to a property of an entity type or complex type that is defined in the conceptual model.

This attribute is applied to properties that return scalar types.
