I am using ADO.NET Entity Data Model in my C# project. There is an ADO.NET Entity Data Model that is generated on the DB in my project. How do I quickly refresh the ADO.NET Entity Data Model based on DB changes? I have been deleting the model and then creating a new one. I believe that there is a more simple and quick way.
Right-click on the model designer and choose "Update Model from Database", and a dialog box will pop up. Click OK and your model will be refreshed.
FYI, I'm using EF 4.0, and I skipped the earlier version, so I can't tell you what it's like in VS 2008.
I always Ctrl-A (to select everything), the press delete, and then create model from database from scratch - update just doesn't work right in a lot of cases. At least in EF4 / VS2010 that I am developing in/with.
