public ICollection GetObjectsFromQuery(
    XPClassInfo classInfo,
    List<XPMemberInfo> members,
    string sql
Public Function GetObjectsFromQuery(

Name Type Description
classInfo XPClassInfo

An XPClassInfo object which contains the metadata information on a non-persistent class corresponding to the query's result set. The class must be decorated with NonPersistentAttribute.

members List<XPMemberInfo>

A list of XPMemberInfo objects representing classInfo members that are mapped to the query's result set columns. The order of list elements should correspond to the order of result set columns.

sql String

A String value that specifies a SQL query.


Type Description

A collection of non-persistent classInfo objects instantiated with data obtained via the specified SQL query.


This method performs the following:

  • Executes the specified SQL query and obtains the query result as a result set.
  • Populates a collection with classInfo objects that are instantiated with the result set's data, based on the mapping information passed as the members parameter. Note that classInfo should represent a non-persistent class decorated with a NonPersistentAttribute.

The GetObjectsFromQuery method throws an exception if the members list includes any of the following classInfo members:

  • A property that is not defined within the classInfo object.
  • A struct type member.
  • A reference to a class with a struct type member.
  • A collection used in object relations.
