ObjectContext.DefaultContainerName Property

Gets or sets the default container name.

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

member DefaultContainerName : string with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String that is the default container name.

DefaultContainerName never returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic); it either returns the value that was set or an empty string. The user can set this property to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), but internally the name will be set to an empty string, so the user never needs to check for both an empty string and a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The default container name is also defined as part of a constructor. If the default container name is set through the protected constructor, the property becomes read-only.
