XpoTypesInfoHelper.ForceInitialize() Method

Forces the initialization of the metadata information on XPO business classes.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Xpo.v21.1.dll


public static void ForceInitialize()


Since the ForceInitialize method is static, you can call in from any appropriate context.


The XpoTypesInfoHelper.GetXpoTypeInfoSource calls the ForceInitialize method internally. So, there is no need to call ForceInitialize manually before using GetXpoTypeInfoSource.

Refer to the How to: Use XAF Reports in a non-XAF Application topic to see an example on how to use the ForceInitialize method.
