Integrating with ASP.NET Dynamic Data - Overview

This article is relevant to entity models that utilize the deprecated Visual Studio integration of Telerik Data Access. The current documentation of the Data Access framework is available here.

ASP.NET Dynamic Data provides a framework that enables you to quickly create functional data-driven applications. ASP.NET Dynamic Data lets you create extensible data-driven ASP.NET Web Applications by changing at run time the appearance and behavior of data fields and by deriving UI behavior from it. You could create a data-driven Web Application with little or no coding. Telerik Data Access provides the Dynamic Data Project Template and the Dynamic Data Wizard, available in Visual Studio 2010, that allow you to build Dynamic Data Web Applications (or Web Sites) based on a Telerik Data Access Domain Model. The Telerik Data Access Dynamic Data Application project template will create a new ASP.NET AJAX web application that uses ASP.NET Dynamic Data, and open the Telerik Data Access New Domain Model Wizard. Once you run through the wizard, the domain model will be added to a new class library project. Once your project is created, you could run the Dynamic Data Wizard to create custom data pages, containing List or Details forms that are implemented using the GridView and FormView controls. The wizard provides customization options, such as choosing specific columns/properties, and enabling edit, insert, and delete operations.

The Dynamic Data Wizard is available only for Visual Studio 2010 Dynamic Data Web Applications or Dynamic Data Web Sites that use .NET version 4.

The Telerik Data Access Dynamic Data Application template is available only in Visual Studio 2010 for applications that use .NET version 4.
