PostPosted: Visual Studio Extensibility, PostgreSQL as data provider? Top

I would like to be able to use PostgreSQL as a data provider\data source within Visual Studio 2005. I am using the free\open source Npgsql ADO.Net data provider in my code, but now I would like to be able to use the visual tools provided by Visual Studio. Is this possible

When I go to choose a data source, one of the options is "<other>", but I don't see any way to add a different data provider to the listing.

You need a Data Designer Extensibility (DDEX) provider, that you can build with the DDEX SDK:
