Entity Names Autogeneration

The Scaffolding Wizard tries to determine the property that can be used as a display name for this entity.

  • Specific object view model (see the last base constructor call parameter):

    This property value is used to display entity text in the tab header:

  • The ColumnBase.FieldName and BaseColumn.Header property values used to display the entity navigation property value text in the grid column.

  • The LookUpEditBase.DisplayMember and LayoutItem.Label properties used to display the entity navigation property value in the LayoutItem.

If you are not satisfied with these properties, change the mentioned property names to the correct ones.
