Entity Developer code generator system is based on its own object model and uses T4-like template language: https://www.devart.com/entitydeveloper/ ... ation.html. Our documentation doesn't include a reference for classes used in the templates, but there are some tips:
  • https://www.devart.com/entitydeveloper/ ... lates.html
  • use IntelliSense feature in our T4 Editor (completion list appears when you type the '.' character)
  • you can switch to the model in design time to read a description of a particular property in the Properties window
  • general T4 reference: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visual ... ew=vs-2019
  • definitions of types in the assemblies
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\EntityDeveloper\EntityDeveloper.Common.dll
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\EntityDeveloper\EntityDeveloper.Orm.Common.dll
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\EntityDeveloper\EntityDeveloper.Orm.EntityFramework.dll
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\EntityDeveloper\EntityDeveloper.Orm.EntityFrameworkCore.dll
    may help you to get acquainted with the needed classes and their functionality
