Change database name (catalog name) in LLBLGen Designer
Consider this: you have LLBLGen projects working and everything is just nice, life is beautiful. Then your DBA, for some reason, change the name of the database. How do you manage this as LLBLGen user?
At runtime you can use Catalog Name Overwriting but What about LLBLGen Desinger? How do you refresh changes from your database if the database name changed? Well, this is briefly mentioned at docs, but for some reason users can’t figure this out, so I will try to explain it a little bit more.
1. In LLBLGen Desinger, find the Catalog Explorer toolbox. Note that I didn’t say Project Explorer but CatalogExplorer.
2. Right click on the Catalog you are interested in and click Rename.
3. Write down the new name of the database.
Done! As you can see, the catalog was renamed on Project Explorer.
…and when you refresh catalogs, the new catalog name is used.
That’s it. DBAs and LLBLGen users are friends again.
