Type Description

A collection of non-persistent objects of the specified type that are 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.
  • Creates objects of the specified type and instantiates them with the result set's data, based on the mapping information passed as the members parameter. Note that the GetObjectsFromQuery<T> method's generic type parameter should specify a non-persistent class decorated with a NonPersistentAttribute.
  • Populates a collection with these objects.

The GetObjectsFromQuery<T> method throws an exception if the members array includes any of the following:

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