Public Enumeration MergeOption
Member name Description
AppendOnly

Append new entities only. Existing entities or their original values will not be modified. No client-side changes are lost in this merge. This is the default behavior.

NoTracking

Objects are always loaded from persisted storage. Any property changes made to objects in the object context are overwritten by the data source values.

OverwriteChanges

All current values on the client are overwritten with current values from the data service regardless of whether they have been changed on the client.

PreserveChanges

Current values that have been changed on the client are not modified, but any unchanged values are updated with current values from the data service. No client-side changes are lost in this merge.

This value is used when materializing objects. Set this property to the appropriate materialization option before executing any queries or updates to the data service. The default value is MergeOption.AppendOnly.
