Linq Read Inserted Id of a Record

Suppose we have the following code sinppets:


private BlogDataContext db = new BlogDataContext ();
...

article.Created = DateTime.UtcNow;
article.Modified = DateTime.UtcNow;

db.Articles.InsertOnSubmit(article);
db.SubmitChanges( );

The ID of the article is automatically generated. How do we get the Id of the newly inserted record?

It turns out that the article is updated with the value of Id after the method SubmitChanges( ) is invoked. So, we can just get the Id this way:


int id = article.Id;
