Select Context Type Dialog

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.

The Select Context Type dialog is the first page of the OpenAccessLinqDataSource wizard. Here you need to select the context object that will be used to retrieve or update data. The second option in this dialog allows you to select the target table/entity.

  • Select your domain context type - specifies the domain context type (OpenAccessContext) that will be used for CRUD operations. The drop-down contains all contexts available in the current or referenced projects.
  • Select your entity set - specifies the table that will be presented by the OpenAccessLinqDataSource control. The drop-down contains all entities exposed by the selected domain context type.
