A Boolean value that indicates whether the expand statement is used with a filter expression.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyMaxResultsExpected

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

System_CAPS_pubmethodSystem_CAPS_staticPathHasFilter(IEnumerable<ExpandSegment>)

A Boolean value that indicates whether the path includes a filter option on target data.

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

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.

http://host/service.svc/Orders?$expand=OrderLines
