Hello Stuart Hemming,
Yes, you are right, the aforementioned information is not mentioned in the help. Thanks a lot for your remark, it will be evaluated on our side and the corresponding information will be added in the help documentation.
However, in the current version of the documentation there is a information regarding the tracing and logging mechanisms in OpenAccess. For example, the following topic (Programming Guide>OpenAccess ORM Visual Designer>Programming Guide>OpenAccess Tasks>Managing the OpenAccessContext>How to: Trace SQL Statements Generated by OpenAccessContext
) could be usefull for you. It demonstrates how to create a custom trace listener, based on the Telerik.OpenAccess.Diagnostic.TraceAdapter class. Please note, nevertheless the fact that this topic is from the Visual Designer section, it could be used and for the classic version of OpenAccess (reverse/forward mapping).
Just a last note, if you are using the Visual Designer, you could enable the trace & log feature of OpenAccess in a few clicks. In the Model Settings dialog > Backend Settings tab page > Tracing & Loging tab page, just enable the Write Events to Text File
option and specify a path in the File Name
Once again, thanks for the feedback. Making a good documentation is a continued effort - the more feedback we get, the more we improve the documentation.
All the best,
the Telerik team
