Overload List

NameDescription
Refresh(Object)
Refresh the state of the instance from the database, overwriting changes made to the entity, if any.
Refresh(Object, LockModeType)
Refresh the state of the instance from the database, overwriting changes made to the entity, if any, and lock it with respect to given lock mode type. If the lock mode type is pessimistic and the entity instance is found but cannot be locked:
  • the PessimisticLockException will be thrown if the database locking failure causes transaction-level rollback
  • the LockTimeoutException will be thrown if the database locking failure causes only statement-level
  • rollback.
Refresh(Object, Dictionary<(Of <<'(String, Object>)>>))
Refresh the state of the instance from the database, using the specified properties, and overwriting changes made to the entity, if any. If a vendor-specific property or hint is not recognized, it is silently ignored.
Refresh(Object, LockModeType, Dictionary<(Of <<'(String, Object>)>>))
Refresh the state of the instance from the database, overwriting changes made to the entity, if any, and lock it with respect to given lock mode type and with specified properties. If the lock mode type is pessimistic and the entity instance is found but cannot be locked:
  • the PessimisticLockException will be thrown if the database locking failure causes transaction-level rollback
  • the LockTimeoutException will be thrown if the database locking failure causes only statement-level rollback
If a vendor-specific property or hint is not recognized, it is silently ignored. Portable applications should not rely on the standard timeout hint. Depending on the database in use and the locking mechanisms used by the provider, the hint may or may not be observed.
