Dynamic Data DataAnnotations setting dynamically using t4 template RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-507312421 posted


    Is there any way to set dynamically the dataannotations according to some values in database?

    My requirement is like this:


     public string DName{get;set;}

     Instead of hardcoding Name="DispName" for Display DataAnnotation, I want to fetch some value from DataBase and fit int the Name attribute. like:


    public string DName{get;set;}

    This should be done using t4 template also. Is there any way to accomplish this?

    no DataAnnotations are loaded at app startup not during runtime. This does not mean that there is not a way you can do this one way woudl be to use Resources or you could write a custom provider as I have doen here Dynamic Data – Custom Metadata Providers Matt's origional does not seem to be avaiulable any longer.
