Entity Framework Screencast

EF Title Now that Advantage supports the Microsoft Entity Framework, I put together a screencast which demonstrates the functionality. We converted the example database used in the entity framework quickstart which is available from Microsoft.

This screencast creates a new project and creating an entity model from an existing Advantage Data Dictionary. Once the entity is created we bind the objects to some controls. Finally we use the SaveChanges() method to commit any changes back to the data dictionary.

I am working on a  utility that will create the sample database. When the tool is complete I will get it posted to Code Central along with some additional entity framework samples.
