Hi there to all,

I made first "alpha" version of DSL model designer to model DO classes within Visual Studio 2010. This version is only for testing purpose, it is not recommended to make real-production models of your application with this version, because DSL model structure will be changed in next version with no backward compatibility. It is just for testing purpose.

Please make some tests on it to found bugs, or some hints to make designer better.

Continue on: DataObjects.Net Entity Model Designer (Codeplex.com).

If you guys found any bug or have any idea please post it on doemd.codeplex.com in section Issue Tracker.

PS: Sorry for advertisment, but i hope some of DO.Net programmers will be happy to have such tool :-)

Peter, that's a great news! Btw, I think it's a good idea to add some screenshots / video to the page.

There are some screenshots (small text like (see screenshots in Item Templates)) but i think to place it on first home page too :-)

New version of DataObjects.Net Entity Model Designer - v1.0.5.0

New features:

  • Update T4 templates to generate also POCO classes
  • Update T4 templates to decorate classes with DataContract and DataMember attributes
  • Introduce simple "external type" definition for scalar properties
  • Introduce DataContract and DataMember settings in Designer
  • Redesign Add Association dialog to be simpler
  • New version check on opening designer

Fixed bugs:

  • Unable to add boolean as type for scalar property
  • Create "ToSelf" association creates duplicate properties
  • Allow define Key settings on navigation property
  • Allow to set access modifier on get/set of property
  • Allow source of association to be Structure


Version due to lack of time, has broken T4 template for generating VB.NET code. Sorry for any inconveniences you may have with this limitation.
