Does addLinkedEntity have an outer join type?

Pretty much as the title suggests I'd like to add related entities/columns on occasion for a dataset control but I'd like this to be an outer join. Is this possible?

Hope this helps.


Kind regards,

I tried this a while ago, but acted like an inner join at the time. So there's missing documentation here again? I've submitted a comment on that page. Could someone from MS give me some insight on this?
