VS2008 and Linq

Postby ericdes » Thu 03 Apr 2008 09:25

I'm trying to drop a table to create a class entity with Linq but I'm getting the following message:
The selected object(s) use an unsupported data provider.

What I did:
- Create a "Data Connection" with a PostgreSQL database
- Open a new "LINK to SQL Classes" item (Entity Data Model)
- Try to drag and drop a table (from that Data Connection to the Enity Data Model .dbml file, this is where I'm getting the error message)

What can I do about it?

PostgreSQLDirect .NET supports Entity Framework with LINQ to Entities,
although id does not currently integrate with LINQ to SQL due to technology limitations.

Will you support Linq To SQL ?

You are the reference in .NET provider for PostGresql. Tell me you will provide this feature in near future ?

For the current moment we actively develop LINQ to Entities technology.
We are exploring LINQ to PostgreSQL. Some prototypes exist, but
unfortunately, no time frame is available for the release version.
