DataContext.GetTable Method (Type)

Returns a collection of objects of a particular type, where the type is defined by the type parameter.

Namespace:  System.Data.Linq
Assembly:  System.Data.Linq (in System.Data.Linq.dll)
Public Function GetTable ( _
	type As Type _
) As ITable

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type

The type of the objects to be returned.

Return Value

Type: System.Data.Linq.ITable
A collection of objects defined by the type parameter.

This is a weakly typed version of GetTable. It is important to have a weakly typed version because it is a relatively common practice to construct queries dynamically. It would be inconvenient to force the application to use reflection to call the correct generic method.

If there is no collection for a particular type, an exception is thrown.
