Custom VB CodeGenerator with RIA Services T4 Code Generator
April 15, 2011 Leave a comment
The T4 Code Generator that ships with the RIA Services Toolkit doesn’t have a VB Code Generator. So for VB Code Generation, you would have to use the CodeDom Code Generator that ships with the RIA Services Product. Or you could write your own Custom VB Code Generator using T4 templates and plug it in to the T4 ClientCodeGenerator.
However, this would not work earlier because of a bug in the code, that prevented any VB Code Generators from working. We have fixed the bug now and the fix is now available with the WCF RIA Services Toolkit (April 2011). Note that this does not contain a VB Code Generator using T4 Templates. It just contains the fix to let anyone stick in their own T4 VB CodeGenerator and use it with RIA Services.
