Request: ADO.NET Entity Data Model RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is there a way to to change the naming 'Pluralize or singularize generate object names'?

    I know it works fine when you write in English, but if you use another language it does not.

    Could it be possible to change the naming convention

    Ex Current.

    Entity 'Country'

    Entity 'State'

    'Country' has a relation to 'State'(0..1 --> *)

    'Country' Navigation Property will be 'States' (Plurailzed) if you select that in Entity Data model wizard' and

    'State' Navigation property will be 'Country'



    Ex. Request,

    Entity 'Country'

    Entity 'State'

    Country' has a relation to 'State'(0..1 --> *)

    'Country' Navigation Property will be 'cState' c stand for Collection

    'State' Navigation property will be 'oCountry' o stands for Object


    I have been doing this name changes to many times now and I really would like to get this automated.

    Working on Customers databases where the database is not written in English gives me a headache every time I have to create or update a Entity model.


    I think this will help others alot that don't use English as standard. (I do in general use only English when i write code)


    Regards Dsoft
