The EntitySetAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodEntitySetAttributeCreates a new instance of the EntitySetAttribute.

Public propertyEntitySetGets the entity set to which the class belongs.

The EntitySetAttribute class is used by the client during data binding to determine the name of the entity set to which a class belongs. This attribute is generated by the Add Service Reference dialog box when the Binding option is used and by the DataSvcUtil.exe tool when the /binding option is supplied.

You must apply the EntitySetAttribute to any user-supplied client data service classes that are used with data binding.

EntitySetAttribute is only supported when there is one entity set associated with the type.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
