Edmx file not updating
I have tried adding a new table, which shows up fine in the model, but then if I try to use it somewhere the table does not show up in intellisense and I can't use it.I have also tried changing datatypes of a column, which again shows up fine if I look at the model file, but visual studio will still give me compiler errors on that field because I am trying to assign the incorrect datatype. NET Entity Framework.aspx) is an awesome way to quickly pull data into an app. The biggest beef I have with it is that the models can get out of sync with the database and saving the EDMX file and running the “Update Model from Database…” feature doesn’t work.I’ve been building apps for a really long time and have used all the frameworks that have come out over the years. For example, let’s say I start with this model: And I add a new table to the DB called Foo: I then go back to my app and add my new table to the model using the “Update Model from Database…” feature: And it is added to the diagram: But the corresponding object model and CS file wasn’t generated: Up until today I would have recreated the EDMX file, which is a big pain.Now, in "Model Browser" under "Entity Types" for model, I can see the table name exists.But in Solution Explorer it is not showing the auto-generated file for the table I have added newly under file.
In my case it was down to issues with how I had built the DB in SQL2012.
