Default never have to customize the auto-generated code

Dear co-developers,
In chapter 2 -DAL there is a partial class that is named the same as the entity class and in the new C# code can have that inherit the correct interface so one need not change the dbml self generated code.
It seems this isn't possible in VB as it doesn't implicitly add the implements statements in the dbml designer code and ENTUserAccount class.
Can the Author or anyone tell us whether this approach as designed in this fine book will work in VB. If it is possible can you give some suggestions or code to get us VBers going?

I can't contact the Author as his email address is not given but his approach being so 'professional' must have a VB equivalent. The best idea so far is to code part of the DAL in C# as a separate project. Could someone explain which classes and code need to be in C#?
Thanks for your help, Markandeya

Hi there,

What exactly are you asking? How to extend an Entity Framework class with a partial class in VB? That's possible. Assuming you have an entity called Blog, you can create the following partial Blog class and add the interface:

Partial Public Class Blog
   Implements ICanHasCheezburger
  ''' Implementation here
End Class
Public Interface ICanHasCheezburger
 Property CanHasCheezburger As Boolean
End Interface
Hope this helps,
