Queries

To perform a query you need to have a root Query object that is an ObjectGraphType. Queries should only fetch data and never modify it. You can only have a single root Query object. Queries are executed in parallel.

query {
  hero {
    id
    name
  }
}

If you have only a single query, you can use shorthand syntax.

hero {
  id
  name
}

To provide an Operation name for your query, you add it after the query keyword. An Operation name is optional if there is only a single operation in the request.

query MyHeroQuery {
  hero {
    id
    name
  }
}

You can also provide that operation name to the ExecutionOptions.

var schema = new Schema { Query = new StarWarsQuery() };
var json = schema.Execute(_ =>
{
  _.OperationName = "MyHeroQuery";
  _.Query = @"
    query MyHeroQuery {
      hero {
        id
        name
      }
    }
  ";
});
public class StarWarsQuery : ObjectGraphType
{
  public StarWarsQuery()
  {
    Field<DroidType>(
      "hero",
      resolve: context => new Droid { Id = "1", Name = "R2-D2" }
    );
  }
}
