How best to make a XPO version of this?

description

Hi guys,
 
I like the concept of your modelling using the Visual Designer for EF, it really does look like a great option.
 
However it is tightly coupled to XAF, and I can understand that implementing attributes which alter the View are neccesary.
 
I was thinking of somehow forking this to have an XPO version, any ideas on if there is any issues with this?
 
Another thing that was interesting is if you run this in VB.NET the generator still produces C# code and files.

Hi miles,

I have commented on the discussion about VB support http://efxaf.codeplex.com/discussions/234403

In regards to an XPO version, I am already in discussions with Patrick about this. His thoughts are about using Templates to achieve this, another way is during the rewrite to use CodeRush we could add more options to "disable" XAF properties, I have looked through the extension code and believe it is doable without too much effort.

So this is something that me primarily coming from the XPO field is after too. Will keep this ticket updated as we work on it.
