DTO generator for Entity framework

Feb 22, 2009 at 11:38 AM
I have been searching on the web for a DTO generator [codes/tools] that will generate the data transfer objects from a edmx or csdl file, and it would be able to re-generate the DTO code once the edmx has been altered. I thought this is a common task that developers need to do, and should be easy to find one, but i was wrong.

Can this task be achieved with T4 Toolbox?

thanks

Yes, it can!

Although, there isn't something like it implemented yet, you could start by checking the LinqToSql template in T4Toolbox... It creates custom classes based in the .dbml file, LinqToSql designer creates.
