Setup

Linq Meta Data Assembly Path - Path to a LLBL generated assembly containing an ILinqMetaData implementation, path can be relative the the EXE or to the starting directory.

Adapter Assembly Path - Path to a LLBL generated assembly containing an Adapter implementation, if there are more than one adapter, e.g. one each for Oracle and SQL Server, include both paths separated by a semicolon. Upon specifying the  Linq Meta Data Assembly above it will attempt to fill in the adapter assembly if they are in the same directory.

The other setup options are the defaults for the Entity Explorer tabs and can be overridden in each tab, to set all the tabs back to the defaults press ‘Reload’.

To add a connection click ‘Add’ or right click anywhere in the application to bring up a menu to do so. The connection dialog is a standard Visual Studio database connection dialog.

The connection/tab name can be edited in a separate dialog.

The configuration and connections are saved on application shutdown to the applications config file.
