Type Description

A Task<TResult> that returns a result set compatible with XPDataView.


Use the ExecuteQueryAsync method to query data stores for resulting sets. You can visualize resulting sets using the XPDataView. Refer to this article for additional information: How to: Access Data in SQL Query Results.

Use QueryParameterCollection to pass strongly-typed parameters. See examples here: Always Encrypted (SQL Server only).

The connection provider automatically generates sequential parameter names (p0, p1, p2 …). To specify custom parameter names, use the overloaded ExecuteQueryAsync(String, String[], QueryParameterCollection, CancellationToken) method.

To learn more about executing SQL statements in XPO, refer to Direct SQL Queries.


The ExecuteQueryAsync method sends statements directly, so the correct statement syntax and parameter names format depends on a particular database server.
