Thread:  DTO Annotation for Llblgen Runtime Framework


rlmartins (User)   Posted on: 03-Oct-2016 17:18:07.
I have a LLBLGen Pro Runtime Framework Project where I created a set of "Derived Models". Is it possible to auto generate Data Annotation for the generated DTO Class members?

Thanks

You can go to the "Code Generation Info" tab, select a field, and thee you can find the Attributes sub tab where you can define extra attributes.

Walaa, Thanks for the prompt response.

Would it be possible to give me an example on how to decorate the datamembers with Required and/or Length attributes?

Also, can you please point out where in the documentation i can go to reference this?

I noticed that on EF (which i am not using), this is done on the DTO Template that LLBLGen runs during code generation.

Thanks
Ricardo
