Designating unique field/fields


  • I haven't seen a way to designate a field as required to be unique, e.g. "CompanyName", or a set of fields as unique, e.g. "User"-"Company".

    I can code it using validation code, but that's too much code compared to toggling a flag or attribute on a field :)

  • There is no built-in functionality for this in the Beta1 version of LightSwitch. It is on the list of things that we are considering for the final release of the product, however.

    For suggestions like this, please feel free to use the Microsoft Connect site (http://connect.microsoft.com/visualstudio) - it has a nifty voting function where you and other users can indicate if the feature is important or not to you.
