Name Type Description
objectType Type

A Type of requested objects.

expressions IList<DataViewExpression>

An IList<DataViewExpression> list that specifies data view column names and expressions used to compute column values. These column names can be used for sorting and filtering the data view via the criteria and sorting parameters.

criteria CriteriaOperator

sorting IList<SortProperty>

An IList<SortProperty> collection whose elements identify the sorted columns within the data view.


Type Description

This method does not return real objects. Instead, a lightweight read-only list of data records that can be viewed much more quickly than a real objects collection is returned.

This method result can be directly cast to XafDataView.
