The DatabaseAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodDatabaseAttributeInitializes a new instance of the DatabaseAttribute class.

Public propertyNameGets or sets the name of the database.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

You can apply the DatabaseAttribute attribute to any strongly typed DataContext declaration.

The DatabaseAttribute attribute is optional. If you use it, you must use the Name property to supply a name.

If you do not apply this attribute and the connection does not specify a name, the database is assumed to have the same name as the DataContext class.
