Mapping properties using attributes in the client library RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In the client library (System.Data.Services.Client), currently, the names of the CLR properties are used as the property name in the OData message. Is there a way of controlling the serialization using attributes, to map a property on our .NET object to a OData property with a different name?

  • Hi fcharlon,

     The client library doesnt support DataContract type attributes on the Client types for Serialization and De-Serialization of feeds.
     You can use projections to reshape a query, but that requires you have both the original and the re-mapped types on the client. 
     Short answer - Not today , sorry.
