[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class, AllowMultiple = false)]
public sealed class EntitySetAttribute : Attribute

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.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

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.
