DataServiceContext.ResolveName Property

Gets or sets a function to override the default type resolution strategy used by the client library when you send entities to a data service.

Namespace:  System.Data.Services.Client
Assembly:  Microsoft.Data.Services.Client (in Microsoft.Data.Services.Client.dll)

public Func<Type, string> ResolveName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Func<Type, String>
Returns a string that contains the name of the DataServiceContext.

Enables override of the default type resolution used by the client library. Set this property to a delegate that identifies a function that is used to resolve a type in the client application to a namespace-qualified type name. This enables the client to perform custom mapping between the type name provided in a response from the server and a type on the client.


This method enables override of the entity name that is serialized to the target representation, such as Atom or JSON, for the specified type.
