Type Description

A IList collection that contains the persistent objects of the specified type. Only objects that satisfy the specified criteria will be retrieved to this collection.


To get the specified objects, this method invokes a protected virtual CreateCollection method that does nothing and returns null. So, the details on how the objects are retrieved depend on how the CreateCollection method is overridden in a particular descendant of the BaseObjectSpace class.
