Public Class Hints


Hint support is database-dependent. LightSpeed does not warn if you provide a hint which is not supported by the database engine. Some combinations of hints and database engines may not be supported from LightSpeed even if the engine supports them: use LightSpeedContext.Logger to check the generated SQL query, and refer to the documentation for information on what hints are supported on what databases.
