EntityDesignerBuildProvider Class

Extracts the model and mapping portions of .edmx files under the App_Code directory of an ASP.NET Web site, and embeds them as resources in the assembly that is dynamically compiled by the ASP.NET runtime.


Namespace:  System.Data.Entity.Design.AspNet
Assembly:  System.Data.Entity.Design (in System.Data.Entity.Design.dll)

public class EntityDesignerBuildProvider : BuildProvider

The EntityDesignerBuildProvider type exposes the following members.

Public methodEntityDesignerBuildProviderInitializes a new instance of the EntityDesignerBuildProvider class.

Public propertyCodeCompilerTypeRepresents the compiler type used by a build provider to generate source code for a custom file type. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected propertyReferencedAssembliesRepresents the assemblies to compile with the source generated by the build provider. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected propertyVirtualPathRepresents the file to be built by this build provider implementation. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public propertyVirtualPathDependenciesRepresents a collection of virtual paths that must be built before the build provider generates code. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGenerateCodeGenerates C# or Visual Basic code based on the model and mapping portions of an .edmx file. (Overrides BuildProvider.GenerateCode(AssemblyBuilder).)
Protected methodGetCodeCompileUnitRepresents the container for the generated CodeDOM graph. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodGetCustomStringInfrastructure. Generates a string to be persisted in the compiled assembly. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodGetDefaultCompilerTypeReturns the compiler settings for the default language in the application. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodGetDefaultCompilerTypeForLanguageReturns the compiler settings for the build provider based on the specified language. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodGetGeneratedTypeReturns a type generated by the build provider from the virtual path. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetResultFlagsProvides instructions to the ASP.NET compiler about building a project. (Overrides BuildProvider.GetResultFlags(CompilerResults).)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodOpenReader()Opens a text reader for reading from the virtual path of the current build provider object. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodOpenReader(String)Opens a text reader for reading from a specified virtual path. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodOpenStream()Opens a stream for reading the virtual path of the current build provider object. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Protected methodOpenStream(String)Opens a stream for reading from a specified virtual path. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodProcessCompileErrorsWhen overridden in a derived class, enables you to review compiler error messages so that you can modify them to provide more information. (Inherited from BuildProvider.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
