Represents a query parameter that is passed to an ObjectQuery<T> or a query builder method. For more information, see Query Builder Methods (Entity Framework).

Object parameters consist of a name, a type, and a value.

This class cannot be inherited. For more information, see ObjectParameterCollection.

The example in this topic is based on the Adventure Works Sales Model. The example adds new parameters to the collection. It iterates through the ObjectParameterCollection and displays the name, type, and value of each parameter in the collection.

using (AdventureWorksEntities context =
    new AdventureWorksEntities())
{
    string queryString =
        @"SELECT VALUE contact FROM AdventureWorksEntities.Contacts
        AS contact WHERE contact.LastName = @ln 
        AND contact.FirstName = @fn";

    ObjectQuery<Contact> contactQuery =
        new ObjectQuery<Contact>(queryString, context);

    // Add parameters to the collection.
    contactQuery.Parameters.Add(new ObjectParameter("ln", "Adams"));
    contactQuery.Parameters.Add(new ObjectParameter("fn", "Frances"));

    ObjectParameterCollection objectParameterCollection =
        contactQuery.Parameters;

    // Iterate through the ObjectParameterCollection. 
    foreach (ObjectParameter result in objectParameterCollection)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("{0} {1} {2}", result.Name,
            result.Value,
            result.ParameterType);
    }
}
