4.17 DDL T4 Template Macro

Convert an Entity Framework model to MySQL DDL code. Starting with a blank model, you can develop an entity model in Visual Studio's designer. Once the model is created, you can select the model's properties, and in the Database Script Generation category of the model's properties, the property DDL Generation can be found. Select the value SSDLToMySQL.tt(VS) from the drop-down listbox.

Note

The ability to convert an Entity Framework model to MySQL DDL code was added in MySQL Connector/Net 6.3.0.
