Display Property Type in EDM

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Is it possible to display the data type of an entities properties in the Designer?  For instance I have a dateofbirth property for my Person Entity. In the designer I want it to show "dateofbith    datetime" 

This would be helpful when printing out the entity model to paper.

Form opening in infopath client despite Content Type settings "Display as a Web Page"

Hi all,   I have a strange behavior with my forms. The infopath template is defined as Content Type for my Form library, in the advanced settings I have checked "Display as a Web page" for the "Opening browser-enabled documents" setting. Despite that when the client is availble on the computer which is browsing the Form Library, I'm asked to "Open", "Save" or "Cancel" instead of opening the form in the browser.   Any idea why this is happening ?

Thank you for your comments and thoughts. Sincerely, Tim

Type-Sensitive display of a Model.

Say I have a Form model which contains a list of Field objects loaded from a database. Each field object has a type that defines whether it is a listbox, combobox, input or textarea.What would be the best way for displaying the Field objects correctly? I was thinking in my View using a switch statement and calling a specific partial depending on the case.<% foreach (var field in model.GetFields()){ switch(field.Type){ case "T": Html.RenderPartial("PartialView", field); break; ...... } }%>Is this a valid approach? What other methods would people recommend to do this?Thanks

How to display TreeViewItems different ways based on the item type under a single node?

Hi, I am having trouble trying to display hiearchical data under each node in two different ways depending on the data.  I hope someone will be able to provide me some help on this since I am rather new to WPF development. Maybe I am going about this all wrong but for now, I am trying to create a customized TreeView to represent data similar to the xml I provided in the code below.  The <ItemsPresenter/> instances listed in the code are not exactly doing what I need.  I will probably need to filter the content that I list with each of the two <ItemsPresenter/> tags based on the type of each item although I have no idea if this is possible.   <Window x:Class="Wpf_treeview_testing.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml" Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300"> <!-- * The "xmlData" describe roughly the type of data that I require visual representaion of. * Since I could not find a WPF Control that will present a Hierachical Data Template close to what we need, I am trying to setup a TreeView to represent this information by using a ControlTemplate for TreeViewItem. * The preferred result is to present different items types in

Web Part property of type "Managed Metadata"


I want to build a custom web part where the user filters the results by selecting a term from a managed metadata property. I want this property to appear in that "Edit Web Part" property panel.

I know if I want to expose a simple string property, I just add the following attributes:




WebDescription("Select the category to filter your results.")]

public string Filter{





How do you do the same thing...but with a managed metadata datatype?

(Not to confuse the question...but the managed metadata datatype I want to show is defined as a Site Column. How can I expose that to a web part property?)


Any help would be appreciated.

Determine node type selected in TreeView and reading property values


I am hoping that someone can help me get past some problems I am having when using the WPF TreeView control.  I have a TreeView that at most can have 3 levels.  The levels are defined as Project, Discipline, Person which would look like the following:

+ Project

    + Discipline

        - Person

My TreeView is bound to a database using two HierarchicalDataTemplate's and then one DataTemplate (the binding is done in the XAML).

What I would like to get is the following information when selecting an item:

  1. Read the selected value (text of the selected node)
  2. Display custom property in propertywindow during design time


    Hi there,

    I derive a control from an existing one (a treeview) and properties to it. I want these properties to be easily editable during design-time in the properties window of the control.

    When I add a public property representing a simple datatype (boolean, integer, ...) the property value can be edited in the property window. But when the datatype is a morge complex object, the property is disabled in the property window and can't be edited.

    Below is a sample property which should be used to allow the user of the property to choose a color. What needs to be added to the code to make it work?

      Private _SelectedNodeColor As System.Drawing.Brush
      ''' <summary>
      ''' Gets or sets the SelectedNodeColor.
      ''' </summary>
      ''' <value>SelectedNodeColor</value>
      ''' <returns>SelectedNodeColor</returns>
      ''' <remarks></remarks>
