    The code generated from edmx designer uses a default template and doesn't use the GeneratedCodeAttribute. This was initially raised as a concern by few developers on


    And the reason for not using the attribute is specified in the above link . Just to quote from the link

    "The generated code can not follow all the fxcop guidelines because of other requirements( mainly around Serialization). The guidance here is to put GeneratedCode attribute on the members of the generated code so that FXCop does not flag these errors. In .Net 4.0( which is our next release and Beta 1 of which is available now), we moved to use T4 templates for code generation. So it will be easier to modify the templates that we ship so that these attributes are produced in the generated code. The reason we did not add these attributes in the templates we ship is because we did not want to clutter the templates."

    Hope this helps !

  • Hi Bindesh,

    Thanks for providing the above link and explaining why.

    We are agree with the comments in the link. The "clutter" seems is not a good reason.

    Does Entity Framework team plans to fix this problem in the next release?
