I'm using this snippet of code...

Using dc = New Context(ConnectionString)
                Dim model = New System.Data.Linq.Mapping.AttributeMappingSource().GetModel(GetType(Context))

                For Each mt In model.GetTable()
                    dBug(mt.TableName)
                    For Each dm In mt.RowType.DataMembers
                        dBug(" " + dm.MappedName + " " + dm.Type.ToString)
                    Next
                Next

Open in new window


Is there a way that I can specify the TableName (As String) to return the mappings for a given table ?

oops the code I posted was mid edit.  It should have read..

For Each mt In model.GetTables()

Open in new window


I was hoping that there would be a way to get the table directly using model.GetTable. But this requires a CLR Row Type.  I don't understand how a row type can return a metatable ?

'code

MetaTable t = model.GetTables().Where(Function(tbl) tbl.Name == TableName).SingleOrDefault()

if t isNot Nothing then
  'do something
end if
