Specifies certain attributes of a class that represents a database.
Assembly: System.Data.Linq (in System.Data.Linq.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
You can apply the attribute to any strongly typed DataContext declaration.
The 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.
