BaseObjectSpace.CreateParseCriteriaScope() Method

Used when parsing a CriteriaOperator represented by a string and containing persistent objects.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v18.2.dll

Declaration

public virtual IDisposable CreateParseCriteriaScope()
Public Overridable Function CreateParseCriteriaScope As IDisposable

Returns

Type Description
IDisposable

An IDisposable object used to restore persistent objects from a serialized string.

Use this method when you need to parse a CriteriaOperator from a string and you expect that it contains references to persistent objects.

Persistent objects are serialized as a part of a CriteriaOperator in a special format and a 'scope' object is necessary to restore objects from a serialized string.

Since the Entity Framework does not support using reference properties in criteria, this method returns null.
