• After more than 30 years running websites and forums I am retiring.

    I have made many friends through the years. I will cherish my time getting to know you. I wish you all the best. This was not an easy decision to make. The cost to keep the communities running has gotten to the point where it's just too expensive. Security certificates, hosting cost, software renewals and everything else has increased threefold. While costs are up ad revenue is down. It's no longer viable to keep things running.

    All sites will be turned off on Thursday 30 November 2023. If you are interested in acquiring any of the websites I own you can Email Schwarz Network.

Trouble connecting F# to an Entity Framework model


Mr Yossu


I've been trying out this MSDN walkthrough to connect F# to an edmx file. I started an empty solution, and added a C# class library, to which I added an Entity Framework model. I then added an F# console app to the solution. My solution now looked like this...


Following what was in that MSDN article, I added the following line to my F# code file...

type edmx = EdmxFile<"DonationsManagerModel.edmx", ResolutionFolder = @"..\EfModel">

However, the type name is underlined in red, and I get the error message...

The provided types generated by this use of a type provider may not be used from other F# assemblies and should be marked internal or private. Consider using 'type internal TypeName = ...' or 'type private TypeName = ...'.

I've been searching, but haven't managed to find anything that I understand that would help solve this. Anyone any ideas?
