Glossary Item Box

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.

The Options dialog is used to customize various settings provided by various OpenAccess wizards, i.e., it customizes the behavior of the OpenAccess wizards. These options are stored in the solution file, project file or in the user profile, based on the applicability of the option.

The Options dialog may be started via the OpenAccess Menu's Options command.

Options Dialog

The Options dialog is shown on the snapshot below:

Currently, the Options dialog lets you decide two things:

  • Location of the Version Field information - you can decide whether the version field information should be written to the XML file (App.config) or to the source code (using the VersionField property of the Persistent Attribute). By default, it is written to the source code. The VersionField specifies the field that will be used for optimistic concurrency control.
  • Location of the FetchGroup definition - you can decide whether the fetchgroup definition should be written to the XML file (App.config) or to the source code (using the FetchField Attribute). By default, it is written to the source code. The FetchField attribute is used to mark those fields that need to be included in a named FetchGroup.
The specified settings would be applicable only for new entries (only when you make any changes to either the VersionField or the FetchGroup definition).
