[MonoDevelop] EDMX Designer Support

It doesn't but I did find out that those three files are generated by a custom tool called EdmGen.exe which currently is wrapper on entity. Framework.design. It might be possible to create a post build step to generate the meta data files from the edmx. If anyone is interested in a open project for that let me know maybe a few of us could knock this out. Maybe even add the UI portion to MonoDevelop's IDE.

Thank you,

Does EF7 actually use Edmx? If not I think you'll find it likely there won't be in built support.

That said, if all you're trying to do is compile a project that has an existing Edmx file, it's like you simply need to mark the correct files as CompileAction = Embedded.

Hope that helps

Will Mono Develop support Entity Framework's EDMX designer? If not is there
some way to make it build projects that used an edmx to compile correctly?
There are some files that i think are added as embedded resources that my
entity project is leaving out. So it compiles fine but throws an exception
at run time.
