public interface IEntityDesignerExtendedProperty

In a Visual Studio extension, the IEntityDesignerExtendedProperty interface exposes methods for extending the functionality of the Entity Data Model Designer (Entity Designer). Specifically, the CreateProperty method of this interface allows you to create custom properties that are displayed in the Visual StudioProperties window. The CreateProperty method is called when a specified object in the Entity Designer or the Model Browser is selected by a user.
