Screencast: LightSpeed + Dynamic Data = Win

I have just published a new screencast showing how to quick and easily create a dynamic data website that sits over a LightSpeed domain model. LightSpeed has been able to work with Dynamic Data for some time now but hopefully this screencast will help those who have not been aware that this could be done.

Topics covered:

  • LightSpeed enabling a Dynamic Data website
  • Improving the display of associated entities in display lists
  • Passing LightSpeed entity validation to Dynamic Data’s validation capabilities to improve the editing & creation process in Dynamic Data (This is a new feature a

What is dynamic data?

The official Microsoft description is “ASP.NET Dynamic Data provides a framework that enables you to quickly build a functional data-driven application, based on a LINQ to SQL or Entity Framework data model. It also adds great flexibility and functionality to the DetailsView, FormView, GridView, and ListView controls in the form of smart validation and the ability to easily change the display of these controls using templates.”

Of course now you don’t need to shackle yourself to L2S or L2E just to use Dynamic Data – you can work with your existing LightSpeed models :-) Watch the dynamic data screencast here (a direct download is also available if you do not like to watch flash videos in your browser)

I hope that helps!
