    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.

    Hi, I need to get table property attribute "DisplayName" from model. I used Justin Anderson tip to get the list of entity types without using a data workspace for entities and properties IEntityType entityType = this.Application.Details.GetModel().GlobalItems.OfType<IEntityType>().Single(e => e.Name.Equals(entityName, StringComparison.Ordinal)); IEntityPropertyDefinition entityProperty = entityType.Properties.Single(p => p.Name.Equals(propertyName, StringComparison.Ordinal)); and it works great! But how can I get entity property attribute like "DisplayName" value? I used Microsoft.LightSwitch.Model.IAttribute attribute = entityProperty.Attributes.Single(a => a.Class.Name == "DisplayName") it fails :(

    Hi, I need to lookup entity properties Name and DisplayName. Something like Ticket ticket = new Ticket(); var _list = new List<LookupTicketField>(); foreach (var prop in ticket.Details.Properties.All().OfType<Microsoft.LightSwitch.Details.IEntityStorageProperty>()) { var field = new LookupTicketField(); field.Value = prop.Name; field.DisplayName = prop.DisplayName; _list.Add(field); } Can I get this from entity model without creating an instance of an entity? Thanks

    I have a details screen that has 3 columns. shrinking the browser down to phone size does not cause the columns to reflow into one long column like I would expect.  The result is that the detail screen is unviewable at phone size, the three columns overrun each other and it looks terrible.  Anyone know about this?  The browse screens in the app resize and reflow as expected.  The issue is only in view details screens.
