  • Is it possible to generate an image (jpg, png...) of the DBML that displays in the O/R Designer though c# alone?

  • Hi ACG,

    Sorry for the late response, we just noticed that your post was moved to LINQ to SQL forum.  

    As I said in this thread of yours, we need to understand or at least call O/R designer related APIs to parse the DBML file if we want the diagram image.  However I don't think LINQ to SQL export some design related assemblies for us to use O/R designer programmatically. 

    We still need to open VS and the O/R designer, and then use some Print functions of VS to export the DBML into images.  We need some VS extension knowledge here to do so.
