    In my recent article, "Is Visual Studio LightSwitch the New Access?", I looked at the suitability of LightSwitch as a replacement tool for departmental applications developed in Microsoft Access. LightSwitch is being positioned as a tool for the power user to develop Microsoft .NET Framework applications without having to face the substantial learning curve of the full .NET technology stack. I described each of the six extension types available to add the functionality to LightSwitch that an experienced .NET developer might want to use to make development in LightSwitch easier, or that a designer may want to use to build a visually appealing application.

    I was wondering what everyone else is doing vis-a-vis their lightswitch projects when a team of devs is involved.  I personally use Git for my source control, and wondered what everyone is doing about the Entity Framework and Intrinsic database changes, how to reconcile them across a team? I'm used to Git in the context of 'pure' source control-- mostly source files, whether they be C# or javascript.  Maybe a json configuration file or two as well.  Git works great with that. With lightswitch it _appears_ to be a little tougher-- the screen designers are in XML format , and if I move a field around on  one and someone else adds a new field to that screen the reconciliation in a merge tool is a bit tricky.  Never mind the Entity Framework updates if I add a new field to the database and try to figure out what's going on when Joe has added another one independently. My point is, even a small change on a screen or relationship can trigger a number of

    Hey guys, I'm creating an "simple" Silverlight application with 3 screens. Home, AddRecordToTable1, and AddRecordToTable2. I'm used to building the HTML clients, but need this one to be in Silverlight. It appears (aesthetically) like a DesktopClient screen. I've got the screens finished. On the home screen there two buttons, one to take you to each of the AddRecords screens. The method I'm currently using is the existing "AddNew" or "AddandEdit" methods for each of the tables. My problem is when you click on the button, it doesn't take you to that screen, it opens a pop up  to add the record, and displays all fields (which I don't want and had removed the unnecessary fields from the screens I created). How can I create a new method to open the screen, or edit the pop-up to not show the unnecessary fields? P.S.: I've searched around but couldn't find anything that appeared to help me, which is why I'm here.
