Assembly:  System.Web.DynamicData (in System.Web.DynamicData.dll)

public abstract class TableProvider

The TableProvider type exposes the following members.

Protected methodTableProviderInitializes a new instance of the TableProvider class for use by an inherited class instance. This constructor can only be called by an inherited class.

Public propertyAttributesGets the attributes that are defined for the table that is represented by this provider.
Public propertyColumnsWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the collection of columns in this table.
Public propertyDataContextPropertyNameGets the name of the table from the data context.
Public propertyDataModelGets the DataModelProvider object.
Public propertyEntityTypeGets or sets the type that represents the table.
Public propertyNameGets the name of the table.
Public propertyParentEntityTypeGets the parent type.
Public propertyRootEntityTypeGets the root type for this entity.

Public methodCanDeleteGets a value that indicates whether the user is allowed to delete items from the table.
Public methodCanInsertGets a value that indicates whether the user is allowed to insert items into the table.
Public methodCanReadGets a value that indicates whether the user is allowed to read items in the table.
Public methodCanUpdateGets a value that indicates whether the user is allowed to update items in the table.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodEvaluateForeignKeyReturns the value of a foreign key for the specified row.
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetQueryWhen overridden in a derived class, returns the System.Linq.IQueryable object that in turn returns the elements of the table.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeDescriptorGets the type descriptor for the table.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns the Name property of the TableProvider instance. (Overrides Object.ToString().)

Table providers must extend this class. LINQ to SQL classes and the ADO.NET Entity data model are providers that extend this class.
