Hi,

When I create a new Domain Model with the Telerik OpenAccess ORM Data Wizard and choose "Populate from database" I can filter the objects by schema so I can see only the database objects from the default schema.

If I try to update my model from the database afterwards (In the Model Schema Explorer right click and choose "Update From Database..") I see all the objects from all the schemas. I can not distinguish the database tables which have the same tablename and come from different schemas. The schema name is not visible.
Because all the objects from all the schemas are loaded (not only the default schema) the loading of the dialog takes very long.

Is it possible to make the schema name of the database objects visible and filter by schema with "Update From Database.." just like the dialog when you create a new model?

Kind Regards.

Hello Henk,

In fact we have already addressed the problem. In Q3 there will be an additional page in the Update from Database wizard where you will be able to select which schemas are used in the metadata comparison. We have plans to redesign a bit more the wizard post Q3 but this should be a good start.
Another useful option that will be introduced in Q3 is the ability to update a single table from the context menu of a class on the diagram. You will get the same dialog but only the table mapped to the selected class will be checked for updates.
Hope that will help.

Sincerely yours,
Alexander
