Choose Database Items 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 Choose Database Objects dialog is part of the Telerik Data Access Create Model Wizard and appears after selecting the server and database to use. This dialog box displays the tables, views, stored procedures and functions available to include in the domain model.

Select the objects to include in the domain model. By default, no objects are selected in the database.

Group By Schemas

This option is useful when objects from more than one database schemas are loaded. Checking it will group the database objects by schemas.

Use Schema Names for Class Namespaces

When your tables are grouped in different schemas (for example the AdventureWorks database), you have the option to separate the generated persistent classes in different namespaces (by using the database schema name).

Create Separate Diagrams Per Schema

Allows you to split a model into multiple diagrams. You might want to use this feature when your model contains multiple schemas and it becomes too large to view or edit. The wizard will combine the generated entities into separate diagrams based on the database schema.

Choose Schemas List

Shows all schemas defined in the database. By default only items from the default schema are loaded in the treeview.

Any errors, warnings, or messages that are generated by the wizard will be visible in the Error List pane after the wizard closes.

If no objects are selected, or if there are no objects in the selected database, a message appears and asks you to continue and create an empty model. If you click yes, the wizards goes to the next dialog.
