Default Unable to select Entity in Data Source Configuration Wizard

Page No 499 Step:6

There is no Entity icon in Data Source Configuration Wizard dialog box. Even i am not able to drag EntityDataSource from the toolbox. Everything is working fine before this step. For a beginner in asp.net, this is the best book you can get :)

Regards,
Kuldeep

A few things to check

1. Which version of Visual Studio are you using? Check Help | About and look for the version number in the upper halve of the dialog.

2. Are you targeting the correct version of the .NET Framework? To check, right-click your web site in the Solution Explorer and choose Property Pages. Then on the Build tab make sure that .NET 4 is the selected Target Framework.

Hope this helps,

Imar

That's really odd and not how it should be. Could be a bug.

Can you provide a bit more information? E.g. the programming language you're using, the exact steps you're following, whether or not you could create the Entity Model and whether you have build errors in the Error List?

Cheers,

Imar

Hi John.

Right-click the Data category of theToolbox and click Choose Items. Then on the .NET Framework Components tab enter Entity in the Filter text box and then select the EntityDataSource item. Once you click OK, the item should appear in your toolbox and in the Data Source Configuration Wizard.

Hope this helps,

Imar
