EF no longer identifying default value getdate() and newId()

Post by johnwest80 » Wed 08 Feb 2012 15:28

A while back, you changed ed to automatically recognize when a uniqueidentifier field was primary key and set to newid(), and automatically set the field appropriately. You also recognized when a datetime field was automatically set to getdate().

Well, I just updated from database for the first time in a while, and these fields didn't get set correctly. It's back to what it was before you changed ed.

Is there a chance you somehow removed that from the latest build? I know you'd like to have version #s and all that from when it worked and when it didn't, but I don't remember when you made the changes, and it's possible it's been a couple of releases since i did an update from db. So I can't tell you for sure. I'm currently using ed standalone 4.2.110.

Can you check into it and see if it should still be working?

Please make sure that you have turned on the [right click on the designer surface > Model Settings > Detect function-based column default value] option.
