Parent child relationship RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi, this code won't create service reference.

    public class Base
    public int ID { get; set; }

    public class Container : Base
        public Container Parent { get; set; }

    public class Node : Container
    public string Name { get; set; }

    The problem is in red. Without the "Parent" all works well

    Error message

    Writing object layer file...
    error 7001: Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not
    closed: End, AssociationSet, EntityContainer, Schema, edmx:DataServices, edmx:Edmx. Line 104, position 23.

  • Hi,

     Navigation properties on Derived types are not supported in this release.

     Please move the navigation property "Parent" to the base type "Base" and then this should work
