Designer: How to start create my own DataAdapterDesigner? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I developed .Net application for a short period. I am finding solutions of simplify for data update.  I found that the ideal solution does not exist and I would like to develop on.

    My plan is sample, just change the DataAdapterDesigner behavior.  Let me choose the updating column and parameters.

    It may easier if I create a application to generate the required class and xml and import them into project. 

    However, it will more useful if I create a DataAdapterDesigner and let user do everything in VS.  Since I am not familiar with Designer of VS.  Would you gentlemen give me a start point or some hints therefore I can start that?

    Thank you.

    I will take a look today. 

    Thank you for your helpful information.
