This documentation article is a legacy resource describing the functionality of the deprecated OpenAccess Classic only. The contemporary documentation of Telerik OpenAccess ORM is available here.

By default, the old wizards (Reverse/Forward Mapping, Enable Project) are hidden and not immediately usable. For example, the snapshot below shows the Telerik OpenAccess ORM menu in Visual Studio.

And the project context menu in Solution Explorer:

As you can see the old menu entries are no longer available.

Enabling the Old OpenAccess Menu Entries

In order to enable the old OpenAccess menu entires:

  1. First, you need to open your solution/project in Visual Studio.
  2. From the OpenAccess menu, open the Options dialog.

    The Options menu entry is available only if a solution is opened.
  3. The old wizards are not deprecated and will not be removed in one of the next releases, but you have to specify on a solution level that you want to use them. To make the old menu visible open the Options Dialog from the Telerik OpenAccess menu and check the Show Old menu entries… option in the General tab.

    The setting is stored inside the solution file on a per solution base. If you want to start with a new solution and use the old menu you have to re-enable it.
  4. Click OK to commit the changes. Now the old menu entries are available.
