public enum class SaveChangesOptions

Member nameDescription

All pending changes are saved in a single batch request.


Pending changes are saved by using multiple requests to the server, and the operation continues after an error occurs.


Pending changes are saved by using multiple requests to the server, but the operation stops on the first failure (default).


Pending updates are made by replacing all values of the entity in the data source with values from the updated entity (HTTP PUT) instead of just updating changed values (HTTP MERGE), which is the default behavior.

When the ContinueOnError option is set, subsequent operations are still tried even after an error occurs.

When batching is not used, the BatchHeaders property on the DataServiceResponse instance returns an empty collection and the BatchStatusCode property is zero.

You cannot set both Batch and ContinueOnError at the same time.
