  • Hi Andrewc9,

    According to your description, Do you want to retrieve the primary key name form entity class? if so, we could use the following code to achieve it.

    using (var db = new DemoContext())
                    var objectContext = ((System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.IObjectContextAdapter)db).ObjectContext;
                    ObjectSet<Song> set = objectContext.CreateObjectSet<Song>();
                    IEnumerable<string> keyNames = set.EntitySet.ElementType.KeyMembers.Select(k => k.Name);
                    Console.WriteLine("{0}", string.Join(",", keyNames.ToArray()));

    Best regards,
