What remains to be implemented in order to support Windows Forms with disconnected state?

Is there a similar BindingSource that was available in 3.9.5?

Only thing we use is DataObjects.NET.UI.BindingSource component


1) Setting bindingSource.ItemType = typeof(Offline.MyEntity) 2) bindingSource.BindingContext = new DataObjects.NET.UI.BindingContext(ObjectSet); 3) calling bindingSource.EnsurePropertyExists(...) for all required properties. 4) setting bindingSource.DataSource to some DataObjectCollection or QueryResult (or using AttachList method)

And we often handle bindingSource.AddingNew event and provide e.NewObject

That's about it.

1) A way to attach an Entity, EntitySet, or IQueryable<t> as the data source. 2) To specify that some nested properties should be "available" (i.e. EnsurePropertyExists method). I don't understand fully why we need this.

Right now nothing special is done there, although we're looking for options.

What do you think, what must be done there on our side? An implementation of BidningSource for DO4, or, may be, something different?

Ok. I'll take a look at old implementation to make a decision on how fast this can be implemented, and will notify you here after v4.2 release. If I'll keep the silence for more then few days, please ping this topic.

Err... I had no time to study this yet (no release = no time :( ). I'll take a look at this right after v4.2 release.
