NET Entity Framework.aspx) is an awesome way to quickly pull data into an app. The biggest beef I have with it is that the models can get out of sync with the database and saving the EDMX file and running the “Update Model from Database…” feature doesn’t work.I’ve been building apps for a really long time and have used all the frameworks that have come out over the years. For example, let’s say I start with this model: And I add a new table to the DB called Foo: I then go back to my app and add my new table to the model using the “Update Model from Database…” feature: And it is added to the diagram: But the corresponding object model and CS file wasn’t generated: Up until today I would have recreated the EDMX file, which is a big pain.
Our site was configured as a Web Application Project, which means that all its code-behind was compiled to a single . At the same time, we wanted the new MVC pages we developed to be as tightly integrated as possible with the existing site, so we wanted to avoid a multi-project solution where each new MVC controller required its own new child project under the main application.This topic assumes that you have developed and tested the latest version of the add-in as described in the Create and debug the new version as if it were a brand new add-in.All of the Share Point components that are deployed to the add-in web are contained in Web-scoped Features in the add-in package.If a developer is only using the source-editor to customize the page, they will not get control updates, and will instead have to add these control declarations manually (which is a pain).VS 2005 uses a code-behind model conceptually the same as VS 2003.
