IPdxInstance MethodsvFabric GemFire .NET Client Documentation
The IPdxInstance type exposes the following members.
Methods

  NameDescription
Public methodCreateWriter
Creates and returns a IWritablePdxInstance whose initial values are those of this PdxInstance. This call returns a copy of the current field values so modifications made to the returned value will not modify this PdxInstance.
Public methodOnlineDispose
Performs application-defined tasks associated with freeing, releasing, or resetting unmanaged resources.
(Inherited from OnlineIDisposable.)
Public methodEquals
Returns true if the given object is equals to this instance. If is not a PdxInstance then it is not equal to this instance. NOTE: Even if is the result of calling GetObject  it will not be equal to this instance. Otherwise equality of two PdxInstances is determined as follows:
  • The domain class name must be equal for both PdxInstances
  • Each identity field must be equal.
If one of the instances does not have a field that the other one does then equals will assume it has the field with a default value. If a PdxInstance has marked identity fields using [!:IPdxWriter.MarkIdentityField] then only the marked identity fields are its identity fields. Otherwise all its fields are identity fields. An identity field is equal if all the following are true:
  • The field name is equal.
  • The field type is equal.
  • The field value is equal.
If a field's type is then its value must be deserialized to determine if it is equals. If the deserialized object is an array then all the array element is used to determine equality. Otherwise [!:Object.Equals] is used. If a field's type is then its value must be deserialized and all the array element is used to determine equality. For all other field types then the value does not need to be deserialized. Instead the serialized raw bytes are compared and used to determine equality. Note that any fields that have objects that do not override [!:Object.Equals] will cause equals to return false when you might have expected it to return true.
Public methodGetClassName
Return the full name of the class that this pdx instance represents.
Public methodGetField
Reads the named field and returns its value. If the field does not exist is returned. A result indicates that the field does not exist or that it exists and its value is currently . The HasField(String) method can be used to figure out which if these two cases is true. If an Object[] is deserialized by this call then that array's component type will be instead of the original class that the array had when it was serialized. This is done so that PdxInstance objects can be added to the array.
Public methodGetFieldNames
Return an list of the field names on this PdxInstance.
Public methodGetHashCode
Generates a hashCode based on the identity fields of this PdxInstance. If a PdxInstance has marked identity fields using [!:IPdxWriter.MarkIdentityField] then only the marked identity fields are its identity fields. Otherwise all its fields are identity fields. If an identity field is of type then it is deserialized. If the deserialized object is an array then all the array element is used. Otherwise [!:Object.GetHashCode] is used. If an identity field is of type this it is deserialized and all the array element is used. Otherwise the field is not deserialized and the raw bytes of its value are used to compute the hash code.
Public methodGetObject
Deserializes and returns the domain object that this instance represents.
Public methodHasField
Checks if the named field exists and returns the result. This can be useful when writing code that handles more than one version of a PDX class.
Public methodIsIdentityField
Checks if the named field was [!:IPdxWriter.MarkIdentityField] marked as an identity field. Note that if no fields have been marked then all the fields are used as identity fields even though this method will return since none of them have been marked.
Public methodToString
Prints out all of the identity fields of this PdxInstance. If a PdxInstance has marked identity fields using [!:IPdxWriter.MarkIdentityField] then only the marked identity fields are its identity fields. Otherwise all its fields are identity fields.
