    Good day,

    I'm having a problem here. Can you help me, how to automatically create database, tables, and schema if it does not exist? like it does not exist on MYSQL, (which is I am using), and when I run the program, it'll auto create the database and everything. 

    Thank you.

    Hello Jed,

    Telerik Data Access supports Data Definition Language which allows you to create or delete a database instance based on the connection string. To achieve this, OpenAccesContext exposes a method GetSchemaHandler() which returns a Schema Handler Instance. For more information about the Schema Handler instance please refer to this article.

    In the bottom of this article you can find an example how to Create a new database if it is not existing or to update the database with the latest changes from the model.

    I hope that helps.

    OpenAccess ORM is now Telerik Data Access. For more information on the new names, please, check out the Telerik Product Map.
