Materialized Views and Entity Developer

Post by curelom » Wed 17 Mar 2010 20:03

I'm trying to use Linq to Sql on some materialized views. In the database explorer of Entity Developer, I can see Tables and Views, but not Materialized Views. Are they not supported? Is there a work around?

We are investigating the possibility to add design-time support for materialized views in future builds.
As a workaround you can just create an entity manually (simplest way is to change Table attribute for a view with the same structure that the materialixed one). Runtime support is available.
