FieldLikePredicate Class
Implementation of a LIKE predicate expression, using the following formats: IEntityField(Core) LIKE Parameter (f.e. Foo LIKE @Foo ) A specified pattern will be set as the parameters value.

public class FieldLikePredicate : Predicate

The FieldLikePredicate type exposes the following members.

Public propertyCaseSensitiveCollation
Gets / sets caseSensitiveCollation flag. If set to true, the UPPER() function (or db specific equivalent) is applied to the field. Default: false
Public propertyDatabaseSpecificCreator
Object which will be used to create valid parameter objects, field names, including prefix/postfix characters, and conversion routines, and field names, including prefix/postfix characters. Uses the strategy pattern so the generic code can work with more than one target database.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Public propertyField
Field used in the comparison expression (SelfServicing).
Public propertyFieldCore
Field used in the comparison expression (IEntityFieldCore).
Public propertyInstanceType
The PredicateType of this instance. Used to determine the instance nature without a lot of casting.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Public propertyNegate
Flag for setting the Predicate to negate itself, i.e. to add 'NOT' to its result.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Public propertyObjectAlias
Alias for the object the field belongs to. Used to identify which entity to use when the entity is present multiple times in a relation collection. Alias has to match an alias specified in the relation collection or should be left empty if no alias is specified (or no relation collection is used).
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Public propertyParameters
The list of parameters created when the Predicate was translated to text usable in a query. Only valid after a succesful call to ToQueryText
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Public propertyPattern
Gets / sets the pattern to use in a Field LIKE Pattern clause.
Public propertyPatternIsRegEx
Gets or sets a value indicating whether the string specified in Pattern is a regular expression (true) or not (false). Only used for in-memory filtering, ignored when predicate is used in database filters.
Public propertyPersistenceInfo
Gets / sets persistenceInfo for field
Public methodEquals
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetFrameworkElementsInPredicate
Gets a list of all framework objects (fields, expression objects etc.) which are located in this IPredicate instance. E.g. a FieldCompareValuePredicate will return a list with 1 IEntityFieldCore instance: the field to compare. If no framework elements are present in the predicate, the base implementation is used, which returns an empty list. This routine is used to gather information for Linq queries.
(Overrides PredicateGetFrameworkElementsInPredicate.)
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodInterpretPredicate
Interprets this predicate on the passed in entity
(Overrides PredicateInterpretPredicate(IEntityCore).)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodReadAdditionalXmlData
Reads the additional a derived type has from the reader's XML data. The reader is positioned at the 'predicate' element.
(Overrides PredicateReadAdditionalXmlData(XmlReader).)
Public methodToQueryText
Implements the IPredicate ToQueryText method. Retrieves a ready to use text representation of the contained Predicate.
(Overrides PredicateToQueryText.)
Public methodToQueryText(Boolean)
Retrieves a ready to use text representation of the contained Predicate.
(Overrides PredicateToQueryText(Boolean).)
Public methodToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodWriteAdditionalXmlData
Writes the additional data a derived type has to the writer specified.
(Overrides PredicateWriteAdditionalXmlData(XmlWriter).)
Extension Methods
Public Extension MethodCaseInsensitive
Makes the predicate a case-insensitive comparison by using the UPPER() function on the value to compare to the pattern specified in the predicate. Make sure the predicate's pattern is specified with uppercase characters. Only useful on case-sensitive collations.
(Defined by PredicateExtensionMethods.)
Explicit Interface Implementations
Explicit interface implementationPrivate methodIXmlSerializableGetSchema
This method is reserved and should not be used. When implementing the IXmlSerializable interface, you should return null (Nothing in Visual Basic) from this method, and instead, if specifying a custom schema is required, apply the XmlSchemaProviderAttribute to the class.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Explicit interface implementationPrivate methodIXmlSerializableReadXml
Generates an object from its XML representation.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Explicit interface implementationPrivate methodIXmlSerializableWriteXml
Converts an object into its XML representation.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Explicit interface implementationPrivate methodIPredicateReadXml
Deserializes the predicate data on the xml reader into a predicate instance
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Explicit interface implementationPrivate methodIPredicateWriteXml
Serializes the predicate as xml to the writer specified.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
Explicit interface implementationPrivate methodIPredicateInterpretInterpret
Interprets the implementing class on the entity passed in.
(Inherited from Predicate.)
