    Hi, I didn't see it mentioned anywhere, but if you're using a uniqueidentifier as a table primary key, and it's not auto-generated by the server, does OpenAccess use Guid Comb to give you the sequential guids to help with the column indexes?

    Thanks,

    Hello Chris,

    no, at the moment we are using Guid.NewGuid(). But if you set the pk value before adding the instance upfront, we will happily use that value; a new id is only generated when needed.

    Hello Michał,

    This feature is already on our TODO list. We will be implementing it most probably before the end of this year but after Q2 2010.

    Hello, this is a pretty old post but don't see that anything has changed in this regard.  Does OpenAccess use a comb algorithm out of the box?  If not, what is the recommended approach?

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Hello Eric,

    we tried to improve the situation for Guids, but the code was not ready for the Q1 2012 release. We will provide a different Guid generation in an upcoming release.
