RemoteTable<T>

Overview

The RemoteTable class represents the data table on the remote DataAbstract server. The T-type defines which Schema tables to represent. Since it implements the interface, it can be used as LINQ Provider for DA data sources.

Service class for LINQ

To create a LINQ request for a DA server, you should have a set of classes that represent tables in the schema. These classes are used as generic types in RemoteTable instances.

In the source code below, you can see an example of a T-class:

[RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.TableName("Groups")]
    public partial class Groups : System.ICloneable, System.ComponentModel.INotifyPropertyChanged, System.ComponentModel.INotifyPropertyChanging {
        private int f____GroupId;
        private string f____GroupName;
        [RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.FieldName("GroupId")]
        [RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.DataType(RemObjects.DataAbstract.Schema.DataType.Integer)]
        [RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.PrimaryKey()]
        [RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.LogChanges()]
        public virtual int GroupId {
            get {
                return f____GroupId;
            }
            set {
                if ((System.Collections.Generic.Comparer<int>.Default.Compare(this.f____GroupId, value) != 0)) {
                    this.m____TriggerPropertyChanging("GroupId");
                    f____GroupId = value;
                    this.m____TriggerPropertyChanged("GroupId");
                }
            }
        }
        [RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.FieldName("GroupName")]
        [RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.DataType(RemObjects.DataAbstract.Schema.DataType.WideString)]
        [RemObjects.DataAbstract.Linq.LogChanges()]
        public virtual string GroupName {
            get {
                return f____GroupName;
            }
            set {
                if ((System.Collections.Generic.Comparer<string>.Default.Compare(this.f____GroupName, value) != 0)) {
                    this.m____TriggerPropertyChanging("GroupName");
                    f____GroupName = value;
                    this.m____TriggerPropertyChanged("GroupName");
                }
            }
        }
        public event System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventHandler PropertyChanged;
        public event System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangingEventHandler PropertyChanging;
        object System.ICloneable.Clone() {
            Groups v____new = new Groups();
            v____new.f____GroupId = this.f____GroupId;
            v____new.f____GroupName = this.f____GroupName;
            return v____new;
        }
        private void m____TriggerPropertyChanged(string p____PropertyName) {
            if ((this.PropertyChanged != null)) {
                this.PropertyChanged(this, new System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangedEventArgs(p____PropertyName));
            }
        }
        private void m____TriggerPropertyChanging(string p____PropertyName) {
            if ((this.PropertyChanging != null)) {
                this.PropertyChanging(this, new System.ComponentModel.PropertyChangingEventArgs(p____PropertyName));
            }
        }
    }

Normally, you will not need to create classes for your Schema manually. Instead, you can use the "Create DA Linq Classes" option of the LinqDataAdapter control to generate it. For more information about this option, see the DA LINQ article.
