Async methods missing in my LinQ method calls. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried writing the following short query code in my program (EF6 .NET 451 with MVVM Light) to see how to access asynchronously the db, however, I DON'T have ANY Async methods except SaveChangesAsync.  That is, I don't have for example FirstOrDefaultAsync()???

    I tried the following code (my Intellisense that shows methods after my Where() clause shows absolutely NO async methods):

    private static async Task<Student> GetStudent()
        Student student = null;
        using (var context = new SchoolDBEntities())
            Console.WriteLine("Start GetStudent...");
            student = await (context.Students.Where(s => s.StudentID == 1).FirstOrDefaultAsync<Student>());
            Console.WriteLine("Finished GetStudent...");
        return student;

  • I didn't have the following:

    using System.Data.Entity;
