Session.CreateObjectTypeRecordsAsync(CancellationToken) Method

Asynchronously stores valid persistent types for all the types which are defined within the assemblies that have been loaded in the current application domain.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v21.1.dll

Declaration

public Task CreateObjectTypeRecordsAsync(
    CancellationToken cancellationToken = default(CancellationToken)
)

Optional Parameters

Name Type Default Description
cancellationToken CancellationToken

null

A CancellationToken object that delivers a cancellation notice to the running operation.

Returns

Type Description
Task

A Task that stores valid persistent types for all the types which are defined within the assemblies that have been loaded in the current application domain.

Remarks

For thread-safe data access layers (see ThreadSafeDataLayer) to function correctly, it’s necessary to provide complete metadata information on the persistent objects in a data store before performing any operations with persistent objects. Call the CreateObjectTypeRecordsAsync method and pass persistent class metadata information as the types parameter to store valid persistent types for the corresponding persistent objects. This creates all the necessary records within a special table called XPObjectType which is used to support object polymorphism.
