6. Using Stored Procedures with the EDM > The EDM Designer’s Model Browser

The EDM Designer’s Model Browser

To access the Model Browser, you need to right-click in the background of the model in the Designer, and then select Model Browser from its context menu.

In Figure 6-5, a number of the model’s objects have been expanded. This view of the model gives you a great way to see the overall picture of the conceptual layer and the store layer without all of the nitty-gritty XML.

Viewing the CSDL and SSDL in the Model Browser

Figure 6-5. Viewing the CSDL and SSDL in the Model Browser

The Model Browser helps you navigate the objects in the conceptual layer (entities, properties, and associations). The lower portion allows you to navigate the items in the SSDL. Notice that in the Model Browser, these are referred to as Tables, Views, and Stored Procedures and not by their SSDL schema names of Entity and Function.
