Is there any way that I can access my SQL views in SubSonic 3.0? The code generation seems to skip views altogether

+1  A: 

The SubSonic 3 templates don't generate code for views yet. You could add the functionality yourself quite easily though, have a look at the LoadTables and GetSPs methods in SQLServer.ttinclude to see how SubSonic builds lists of tables\stored procedures.

To include views in your project

simply open SQLServer.ttinclude Find the query that load the tables ( search form 'const string TABLE_SQL') then change it to

const string [email protected]"SELECT *
    FROM  INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_TYPE='BASE TABLE' 
    union
    select Table_catalog, table_schema, table_name, 'View' table_type 
    from information_schema.views";

if you are using it in an asp.net project you can exclude the aspnet table and views like so

const string [email protected]"SELECT *
    FROM  INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES
    WHERE TABLE_TYPE='BASE TABLE' 
     and table_name not like '%aspnet_%'
    union
    select Table_catalog, table_schema, table_name, 'View' table_type 
    from information_schema.views
    where table_name not like '%aspnet_%'";

Only problem is then you have Save(),Delete(), etc methods on the view objects that don't really apply to Views

I have not tried to save or delete a view, but sql wise it's possible to update a view. I guess the best solution would be to create a template for view and return read-only objects.
