using DevExpress.Data.Filtering;
using DevExpress.Xpo;
// ...
CancellationTokenSource source = new CancellationTokenSource();
CancellationToken cancellationToken = source.Token;
Person personToUpdate = (Person)await session.FindObjectAsync(typeof(Person), 
    CriteriaOperator.Parse("Name='Michael Suyama'"), cancellationToken);
if(personToUpdate != null) {
    personToUpdate.Birthday = new DateTime(1986, 10, 31);
    session.Save(personToUpdate);
}

Persistent objects that are marked as deleted in the database (see Deferred and Immediate Object Deletion) are not included in the search.
