  • Hi WGBDD,

    To create a datasource and screen template requires you to develop an extension, these two particular areas of extensibility were not fully ready in Beta 1. Extension development in general are introduce briefly in the LightSwitch Training Kit, where you can look at the mechanics of an extension such as a custom control and custom data source (using WCF RIA services). The training kit can be found at the following location: http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9741442

    Our next beta will have this capability fully available.
