My Entity won't cast to IEntityWithRelationships

I am having trouble casting one of my entities to IEntityWithRelationsships. I am using a lot the method for getting context from an entity, and it's been working fine so far. I thought that entity need only to have one or more relationships defined in Model and that's it.

Here's little bit of my code:

public ActionResult Update(StavkaDokumentaVM stavka)
if (ModelState.IsValid)
    StavkaDokumenta st = AutoMapper.Mapper.Map<StavkaDokumenta>(stavka);

    db.ObjectStateManager.ChangeObjectState(st, EntityState.Modified);                

    IEntityWithRelationships test = st as IEntityWithRelationships; // I get NULL here

    st = db.StavkeDokumenta.Include("RelationEnd1").Include("RelationEnd2")
        .Where(sd => sd.IdStavkaDokumenta == st.IdStavkaDokumenta).Single();

    test = st as IEntityWithRelationships; // Also get NULL

Entity in question has like 10 relations defined, so it shouldn't be problem.

What is going on here? I am really baffled.


This is what I just did:

db.LoadProperty(st, "DokumentStavke");
IEntityWithRelationships test = st.DokumentStavke as IEntityWithRelationships; // I get NON NULL value;
test = st as IEntityWithRelationships; // I still get NULL.

Is this the way things are supposed to be?


POCO entity does not implement IEntityWithRelationships. What you are doing is a hack dependent on dynamic proxy. Dynamic proxy generated by EF implements that interface but to have dynamic proxy correctly created you must pass all prerequisites.
