QueryMultiple


This method is used to query the data as multiple resultsets from the table based on the given number of target types.

Code Snippets

Below is the sample code to fetch a single parent row from the [dbo].[Customer] table and all the related orders made from the [dbo].[Order] table.

using (var connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
{
    var result = connection.QueryMultiple<Customer, Order>(p => p.Id == 10045,
        o => o.PersonId == 10045);
    var customer = result.Item1.FirstOrDefault();
    var orders = result.Item2.AsList();

    // Do the stuffs for the `customer` and `orders` here
}

It returns a type of Tuple<T1, .., T7> object. The maximum type that it can cater is 7. Each item in the tuple object is an IEnumerable<T> object of the target generic type.

Table Hints

To pass a hint, simply write the table-hints and pass it in the hints argument.

using (var connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
{
    var result = connection.QueryMultiple<Customer, Order>(p => p.Id == 10045,
        o => o.PersonId == 10045,
        hints1: "WITH (NOLOCK)",
        hints2: "WITH (NOLOCK)");
    var customer = result.Item1.FirstOrDefault();
    var orders = result.Item2.AsList();

    // Do the stuffs for the `customer` and `orders` here
}

Or, you can use the SqlServerTableHints class.

using (var connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
{
    var result = connection.QueryMultiple<Customer, Order>(p => p.Id == 10045,
        o => o.PersonId == 10045,
        hints1: SqlServerTableHints.TabLock,
        hints2: SqlServerTableHints.TabLock);
    var customer = result.Item1.FirstOrDefault();
    var orders = result.Item2.AsList();

    // Do the stuffs for the `customer` and `orders` here
}

Ordering the Results

To order the results, you have to pass an array of OrderField objects in the orderBy argument.

using (var connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
{
    var orderBy = OrderField.Parse(new
    {
        OrderDateUtc = RepoDb.Enumerations.Order.Descending
    });
    var result = connection.QueryMultiple<Customer, Order>(p => p.Id == 10045,
        o => o.PersonId == 10045,
        orderBy2: orderBy);
    var customer = result.Item1.FirstOrDefault();
    var orders = result.Item2.AsList();

    // Do the stuffs for the `customer` and `orders` here
}

Filtering the Results

To filter the results, you have to pass a value at the top argument.

using (var connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
{
    var result = connection.QueryMultiple<Customer, Order>(p => p.Id == 10045,
        o => o.PersonId == 10045,
        top2: 100);
    var customer = result.Item1.FirstOrDefault();
    var orders = result.Item2.AsList();

    // Do the stuffs for the `customer` and `orders` here
}
