Id not passed correctly for classes that inherit from IEntity

Aug 2, 2012 at 7:27 PM

When model classes inherit from Entity, everything seems to work ok, but we had a problem with serialization (only the Id was serialized). So we now inherit from IEntity and add our own Id property as follows

        public string Id { get; set; }

At that point the id is not recognized correctly

            string id = "actualId";
              // GetSingle will return the class
            var sample = _db.GetSingle(c => c.Id == id);

              // GetById will return null (Delete will do nothing)
            var model = _db.GetById(id);

Any ideas?

By the way, I tried adding


to the Id property without any noted effect.

Sorry for the late reply, I was on holiday. I will look into your question soon (hopefully this week sometime).

This seems to be similar (and/or related) to this post. Could you elaborate a bit more on "we had a problem with serialization" like: what kind of serialization (JSON? XML? Other?) and what kind of product (or BCL class) used for the serialization? Also; the post I referred to might point you in the right direction. If not, please let me know.

The referenced post solves the issue with Entity, so we will avoid this one by switching back to using the Entity class.
