LINQ ReQuery

LINQ queries seem to run once and reuse the selected data if the parameters don't change. - even it the data underneath has changed. In this code the query data is not refreshed eventhough I have changed the data in the database and I want to get the refreshed data.

    '** Load Default MWH Data
    Private Sub LoadDefaultMWH()
        '* DataContext is dc_MD
        '* Table is MD_MeterPoints
        Dim wrkMWH As Double
        '** Load Selected Date data
        Dim qDM = From DM In dc_MD.MD_MeterPoints _
          Select DM Where DM.P_ID = 210

        For Each recDM In qDM                                      '* there is only 1 record
            wrkMWH = recDM.P_DefaultAvailibility
        Next

How can I get LINQ to go back to the database when it thinks it already has what I want?

Thanks!

Dim qDM = From DM In dc_MD.MD_MeterPoints
                  Where DM.P_ID == 210
                  Select DM

Try this code.

I see that you reversed the order of the WHERE and Select... I tried it but I get the same results. As an additional clue, I only get the refreshed data in this query if I actually close the application. I can see the updated data in another application function without closint the application.

Hi BEDMDunphy;

When you query the database and it returns records those records are saved in the DataContext. If your data in the database for those same records has changed by another process and you re-query the DB with the same DataContect as the original query the data for those records already in the DataContext will NOT be updated. If you change data in the records that are in the DataContext but have not executed a SubmitChanges the database will not be updated.

To get new changes that are in the database for records that are already in the DataContext execute a Refresh, something like the following :

DataContext.Refresh(RefreshMode.OverwriteCurrentValues, TheEntityTable)

For example

dc_MD.Refresh(RefreshMode.OverwriteCurrentValues, MD_MeterPoints)

Then the DataContext will have all the new values for the table MD_MeterPoints.

If you make changes to the DataContext you must do the following for the database to see them :

dc_MD.SubmitChanges()

Hi FernandoSOTO,

THANKS! For general information for other researchers on this issue - I did have to change the syntax slightly...

dc_MD.Refresh(RefreshMode.OverwriteCurrentValues, dc_MD.MD_MeterPoints)
