Thread:  Singular to Plural Fields

Filomeno (User)   Posted on: 27-May-2008 13:12:01.
Hello Experts,
Is it possible to have a template for me to include some conditional statement in pluralizing a fields that are mapped from relationship? I badly need to know this feature so that I could achieve some of my goals in renaming the fields. I know I can achieve this by explicitly rename the field but it is somehow helpful to have a template or some area to be configured to have it automatic after refreshing the catalog.
        a) In CustomerEntity
             o Rename Order Field to Orders
        b) In OrderEntity
             o Rename OrderLine Field To OrderLines

I simply achieve this by putting 's' at the end of FieldMappedOnOneToMannyPattern property of the project. But since there are fields that ends with 'y', 's', or 'ss', just like having foreign tables 'News', "Address' or 'Assembly'. So there will be fields like 'Addresss', 'Newss', or 'Assemblys' which is not good. How is it possible to have a good plural field name?
Instead of having:
     o Addresss, should be changed to Addresses
     o News, stick with it
     o Assembly, should be changed to Assemblies

You can customize the generation templates, please see Template Studio in the documentation. Keep in mind that you must implement the pluralizing algorithm, I'm sure there are plenty examples of this in the web.

I think all the pluralization rules have been taken care of, so you don't need to modify anything.

Anyway the following is copied from the manual:
These plug-ins are based on the Castle Project's Inspector class for singularization/pluralization of English names. As this is an Open Source project, the sourcecode of this class is available in the SDK sourcecode, available to all LLBLGen Pro customers in the customer area.

Hint: check the Inflector.cs file for all rules. (SDK\Sourcecode\Plugins\)

I have already found the solution to my problem. After looking into plug-in I was able to follow the logic and binds to an event.
