I am learning the Nerd Dinner MVC2 demo and see inside the NerdDinnerEntities

partial void OnContextCreated();

I am trying to understand this syntax and where the code exists.  And what it does.

Thanks,

this is a partial method declaration. so that you can extend the method in your partial class if needed.The method is invoked once the context has been created.

If it isn't clear, that syntax is a partial method, which is a 4.0 construct.

Partial Classes and Methods (C# Programming Guide)
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/wa80x488.aspx

"A partial method declaration consists of two parts: the definition, and the implementation. These may be in separate parts of a partial class, or in the same part. If there is no implementation declaration, then the compiler optimizes away both the defining declaration and all calls to the method."

That line is the definition, so if you can extend the NerdDinnerEntities with another partial class:

   public partial class NerdDinnerEntities

The other partial class could have the implementation of OnDataChanged, if you need it, since the definition is already defined.

Oh.  It's a definition for a function that doesn't even exist yet.  But if it ever should, like if I create the body, it will be called in all the right places already?  Is that right?
