    When I create an association from one table to another using the 'Association' Toolbox item, it would be nice if all the depended properties were setup for me.  Consider the cast of an 'Org' table with a related 'OrgType'.  Both will have an Int32 key named 'ID'.  Here is what I would like to see happen:

    • Drag the association toolbox icon from Org header to OrgType header.
    • ORM determines that primary key of OrgType is ID, so it creates a model property OrgType_ID of the same type in Org.
    • ORM also creates an OrgType_ID in the database table.
    • ORM connects the model parameters OrgType_ID in the model and database table
    • ORM creates the relationship so that the owner end and target end point to the above parameters

    This would save a *HUGE* amount of effort for me since I do a ton of third-normal form database development.

    Hi Brian Womack,

     I would like to assure you that these suggestions for usability improvements of the product are seriously considered and talked over by our team. Thanks a lot for the good proposals, we will definitely implement, at least some of them, for future versions.

    Hello Iván Tajes,

     
    At the moment we are implementing a new and much more flexible Association editor which would allow you much greater control over the association you are defining. I believe that this editor should suite the needs for you and Brian who initially brought this question up in the forum.

    All the best,

    Hi Iván Tajes,

    At the moment we are working on it and doing the final polishing. If there are not any unplanned obstacles it should be there for the Q1 release. I will not promise you that but if for any reason, you do not  see a new Association Editor in the designer in the Q1 release - the first Service Pack will definitely have it.
