How do I persist a plain old C# object into SQL Server using DLinq? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a plain old C# class object and I want to persist it to a SQL Server database table.
    The object uses simple types like int and string.

    I have the following DLinq code, I think I am close, what am I missing?

    The error I get is "The type 'PersistObject.BidData' is not mapped as a Table."  How do I map my plain old C# class into DLinq?

            static void Main(string[] args)
                BidData bidData = new BidData();
                DataContext db = new DataContext(@"server=tcp:mattn2,1433;database=BidTrace;user id=bidTrace;password=bidTrace;");
                Table<BidData> bidDataTable = db.GetTable<BidData>();
        public class BidData
            public string createTSQL
                    return "if exists(select 1 from sys.tables where name like 'bidData') begin drop table bidData end " +
