    When working with older versions of Openaccess I often do something like this in data methods:

    bool shouldCommit = !scope.Transaction.IsActive;
    //Do some stuff

    This way I could either call the method "on its own" or as part of a transaction, along with other such methods,
    in which case the transaction was handled in the calling method.

    Now with the newer versions, I can't find a way to explicitly start a transaction.
    You only call context.SaveChanges() to commit the transaction.

    Is there a way I can achieve the old behavior, short of passing along a parameter to indicate whether to commit or not?

    Hi Patrik,

    I am afraid you cannot control the transactions using the Context API. If you want to achieve that goal you need to use the old classic API.

    I am sorry for the inconvenience caused.
