Model Operations Dialog - 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.

The Model Operations Dialog allows you to update many (or all) classes and properties using a configurable model operation, such as changing class namespaces, names, property types, etc. If you work with a large database schema, the dialog allows you to make changes equivalent to a refactoring of many objects in your domain model, thus increasing your productivity in working with the Visual Designer.
