How to retrieve SQL Server Identity column value when row is added by Lightswitch RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think this has been asked before, but darn I can't find it.

    I working with VS2013 on a Lightswitch desktop app.

    If I add a row to a SQL Server table via Lightswitch and the table has an Identity column, how do I find the value of the Identity column for the row I just added? I want to both tell it to the user and be able to retrieve the row later.

    Thanks in advance.

    var objPhoneCall = serverContext.DataWorkspace.ApplicationData.PhoneCalls.AddNew();
    // Set values
    objPhoneCall.CallType = ddlCallType.SelectedValue;
    objPhoneCall.Description = txtDescription.Text;
    objPhoneCall.PersonCalling = txtPersonCalling.Text;
    objPhoneCall.PhoneNumber = txtPhoneNumber.Text;
    // Save changes
    // Get the ID
    var ID = objPhoneCall.Id;
