Update Model Template

The update model template generates a update model from an entity. The update model is used to shape updating of entity instances.

Output

Example of a generated model class

public partial class StatusUpdateModel
    : EntityUpdateModel
{
    #region Generated Properties
    public string Name { get; set; }

    public int DisplayOrder { get; set; }

    public bool IsActive { get; set; }
    #endregion
