I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Better integration to FSharp-language

    F# is currently maybe best selection for microservice .NET backend language.

    So I would like better user experience for F# users and also some tutorials/documentation for that.

        • Date type for dates

          System.DateTime maps to datetime2(7) in sql server wich is not optimal for storing date-only (without time) information.

          SQL'92 has special Date type, for storing date-only.

          It could be implemented by adding [DateOnly] or [DateWithoutTime] attribute for fields.

            • recycle bin

              Hi all,

              In almost all projects I've been working on there has always been the request for a feature to be able to delete entities without deleting the phyisical data.

              Most of the time this was resolved using a 'Deleted' boolean/date in the entity. The disadvantage of that scenario is that in all queries to the data storage a where clause with at least a 'Deleted = false' should be issued.

              Wouldn't it be nice if DO could do this for us?

              Regards
              Paul

                  Visual Studio 2010 is obsolete... it's possible to get Express edition only.
                  What about 11th version support?

                        • Comprehensive offline help file

                          There is many features that are not in the .chm help file. Some of this content exists in the dataobjects.net blog and the support site. Digging it up requires online connection and its not clear where you'll find your specific answer to your question.

                          Are you able to beef up the .chm file with more content? Even more info on extensible points of the ORM, services and even architectural information for beginners.

                          Best practices should also be included and different usage scenarios.

                          Thanks.

                              • Educational process

                                I work with programming and today I have the opportunity to be a teacher of the discipline of 'systems development'. I believe we need to focus not on traditional techniques but innovative ones: the DataObjects.Net in this list. The study is in the direction of object orientation, independent of database and SQL commands.

                                  • add JSON (de)serialization optimized for DataObjects.Net

                                    Even though it is quite simple to serialize objects with the System.Web.Script.Serialization.JavaScriptSerializer it has some issues when there are circular references. There are ways to resolve this like using the [ScriptIgnore] tag or by avoiding properties who result in circular references with Linq (see also: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2002940/json-and-circular-reference-exception). The DataObjects.Key is one of the properties that results in a circular reference which means it is harder to serialize in a straight forward manner. I'm not sure what the solution should be at the moment but maybe there are more developers who see this as a usefull feature and have ideas for…
