The Typed View Editor is the editor which allows you to alter any aspect
of a typed view definition: its fields, its mappings and its code
generation information. You open a typed view in its Typed View Editor
by selecting it in the Project Explorer and then
right-clicking it and selecting Edit..., or by pressing
The typed view editor consists of the following main parts:
- Fields tab
- This tab contains the information and editors for working with the fields of the typed view
- Field mappings tab
- This tab contains the information and editors for working with the mappings of the typed view definition on a target element in the Relational Model Data, e.g. a table, view or stored procedure resultset.
- Code generation info tab
- This tab contains the information and editors for the code generation related data of the typed view and its containing elements.
At the top of the Typed View Editor you'll find the following editor elements:
- Typed View name
- This is the name of the typed view
- Group name
- This is the name of the group the typed view is in. You can select an existing one or specify a new one. If left empty, the typed view is in the unnamed group
The designer also offers a General Typed View Editor. This is a special kind of typed view editor which allows you to edit the typed view which is currently selected in the project explorer. This editor is opened by selecting Project -> General Typed View Editor in the menu, or by clicking button in the toolbar.
The advantage of the General Typed View Editor is that it keeps the current sub tab selected when you select another typed view in the project explorer, which allows you to e.g. edit the mappings of several typed views without a lot of clicking through tabs.
