new sql server 2008 data types RRS feed

  • Question

  • hi,

    when trying to use the new sql server datatypes() I'm recieving this error “One or more selected items contain a data type that is not supported by the designer" is it true that linq to sql does not support the new datatypes? if not when it will be supported? and is there a way to use these datatypes now?

    thx

  • LNIQ to SQL doesn't support the Geometry/Geography/Hierarchyid types in SQL2008. I doubt that they'll ever be supported.

    It does, though, support new the date/time-related types DateTimeOffset, DateTime2, etc.
