ObjectQuery.GetResultType Method

Returns information about the result type of the query.

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

'Declaration
Public Function GetResultType As TypeUsage

Return Value

Type: System.Data.Metadata.Edm.TypeUsage
A TypeUsage value that contains information about the result type of the query.

This example is based on the Adventure Works Sales Model. The example creates an ObjectQuery(Of T) of type DbDataRecord and uses GetResultType to determine whether the type returned represents a row.

Using context As New AdventureWorksEntities()
    Dim queryString As String = "SELECT VALUE product " & "FROM AdventureWorksEntities.Products AS product" 
    Dim query As New ObjectQuery(Of DbDataRecord)(queryString, context)

    Dim type As TypeUsage = query.GetResultType()
    If TypeOf type.EdmType Is RowType Then 
        Dim row As RowType = TryCast(type.EdmType, RowType)
        For Each column As EdmProperty In row.Properties
            Console.WriteLine("{0}", column.Name)
        Next 
    End If 
End Using
