Entity Framework LoadProperty with Filter RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

      I am working on Entity Framework and I have question on the LoadProperty of the context. I am loading my parent entity and trying to load the navigation property through the context.loadproperty as the include is giving me a time out exception as there is a lot of data in the database and also I need to load lot of child entities. So i was using the LoadProperty which is fairly quick but the only problem i have in using this approach is that I cannot filter the data that needs to be loaded. Can anyone please suggest me better approach or if there is a possibility to include the filter with the LoadProperty.

  • Do a linq query which does the filtering you need and send out DTO (data transfer object) of the results.
