LoadProperty Method

ObjectContext.LoadProperty Method

.NET Framework (current version)
 

Explicitly loads a related object when you are using POCO custom data classes.

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodLoadProperty(Object, String)

Explicitly loads an object related to the supplied object by the specified navigation property and using the default merge option.

System_CAPS_pubmethodLoadProperty(Object, String, MergeOption)

Explicitly loads an object that is related to the supplied object by the specified navigation property and using the specified merge option.

System_CAPS_pubmethodLoadProperty<TEntity>(TEntity, Expression<Func<TEntity, Object>>)

Explicitly loads an object that is related to the supplied object by the specified LINQ query and by using the default merge option.

System_CAPS_pubmethodLoadProperty<TEntity>(TEntity, Expression<Func<TEntity, Object>>, MergeOption)

Explicitly loads an object that is related to the supplied object by the specified LINQ query and by using the specified merge option.

When using POCO custom data classes, related objects cannot be explicitly loaded like instances of entity types that are generated by the Entity Data Model tools. This is because the tools generate the navigation properties that return an EntityCollection<TEntity> or EntityReference<TEntity> of related objects when Load is called on a T:System.Data.Objects.DataClasses.RelatedEnd`1. POCO entities can still be loaded by using lazy loading by setting the LazyLoadingEnabled property to true on the instance of ObjectContextOptions that is returned by the ObjectContext.ContextOptions property, or by using eager loading with the Include method on the ObjectQuery<T>.
