Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.DC

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.ExpressApp


public class AggregatedAttribute :


An aggregated object is a dependent object that is linked to its owner and cannot exist on its own. For example, Address and PhoneNumber business classes are usually not available in the navigation control and root ListView because they are created from the context of their parent object.

For Entity Framework Core and non-persistent objects, apply DC.AggregatedAttribute to reference or collection type properties. For example, you may have an aggregated Address reference type property and an aggregated collection of PhoneNumber objects. For more information on how to use the attribute, see One-to-Many (Aggregated).

If your application uses XPO, apply Xpo.AggregatedAttribute.
