        string CustomerName;
        string CustomerURL;

        public int CustomerID

Persist by self :
    Customer c=new Customer();
    c.Insert();//insert a new customer
    c.CustomerName="chengdu tryitsoft";
    c.Update();//update customer
    c.Delete();//delete customer
    c=c.GetObject(1005);//retrieve a customer
    string filter="CustomerName=’tryitsoft?quot;;
    DataSet ds=c.GetObjects(filter);//retrieve customers by custeomr name

Description : if you want to entity class can persist by itself , entity class must extend Grove.DataObject.EntityClassBase
  • Relation query by entity class
Use Tool Kit create relation entity class :
public class OrdersRelationQuery
    [RelationReflect("Orders","Order Details")]

        get{return "[Orders].[OrderID]=[Order Details].[OrderID]";}

    DateTime _RequiredDate;
    public DateTime RequiredDate
        get{return this._RequiredDate;}
    int _ProductID;
    [DataField("ProductID",TableName="Order Details")]
    public int ProductID
        get{return this._ProductID;}
