The segment of a query that indicates whether data should be returned inline instead of as deferred content.
Assembly: System.Data.Services (in System.Data.Services.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|ExpandedProperty||Gets the property to be expanded.|
|Filter||The filter option in the query to which the expand segment applies.|
|HasFilter||A Boolean value that indicates whether the expand statement is used with a filter expression.|
|MaxResultsExpected||Gets the maximum number of results expected.|
|Name||The name of the property to be expanded.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|PathHasFilter||A Boolean value that indicates whether the path includes a filter option on target data.|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
An $expandclause indicates that each $expanditem should be fully expanded. For example, the value OrderLines.Product.Image with $expand causes OrderLines, the Product of each element in OrderLines, and the Image of the Product of each element in OrderLines to be expanded.
The left-most property in an $expand clause must be a property on the entity type within the entity set identified by the last path segment in the request URI.
Redundant expand clause rules are acceptable and ignored.
The following URI expands the OrderLines associated with each Order returned by the query.
