Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v21.2.dll


public Task<ClassType> GetObjectByKeyAsync<ClassType>(
    object id,
    CancellationToken cancellationToken = default(CancellationToken)


Name Type Description
id Object

An object that represents the persistent object’s key property value.

Optional Parameters

Name Type Default Description
cancellationToken CancellationToken


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

Type Parameters

Name Description

A type of objects to search for.


Type Description

A Task that returns a persistent object. This persistent object has the specified key property value and a type specified by the generic type parameter. The task returns null if no objects are found.


Below is an example of using the GetObjectByKeyAsync<ClassType> method. Here, the session is the Session instance.

using System.Threading;
using DevExpress.Xpo;
// ...
CancellationTokenSource source = new CancellationTokenSource();
CancellationToken cancellationToken = source.Token;
Person personToDelete = await session.GetObjectByKeyAsync<Person>(152, cancellationToken);

The GetObjectByKeyAsync<ClassType> method searches the memory for the object that has the key property value. If such an object is found, it is not reloaded. To get the up-to-date object from the storage, use the overloaded Session.GetObjectByKeyAsync method with the alwaysGetFromDataStore parameter set to true.


The GetObjectByKeyAsync<ClassType> method does not find objects until they are saved to a data store.
