In ASP.NET Dynamic Data applications, the MetaForeignKeyColumn class represents a database column that denotes a one-to-one relationship.

The MetaForeignKeyColumn class represents the column in the table that contains the foreign-key field. However, you can access the parent table object by using the ParentTable property. You can determine if the foreign-key field is a primary key in the table that contains it by using the IsPrimaryKeyInThisTable property.


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