4.4 Item Templates versus Project Templates

Beginning with MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.5, the project templates used to create MySQL Windows Forms and MySQL MVC projects are no longer be available, as they were replaced with MySQL Item Templates:

  • MySQL MVC Item replaces MySQL MVC Project

  • MySQL Windows Forms Item replaces Windows Form Project

These item templates offer the benefit of adding items to existing projects new windows forms or MVC controllers/views connected to MySQL, based on MySQL Entity Framework models, without the need of create an entirely new MySQL project.

In addition, item templates better follow the Visual Studio template standards, which are oriented to create projects regardless of the database connectivity.

For information about using Item Templates, see Section 4.14, “MySQL Project Items”
