    I'm trying to develop a widget which is based on a custom database table.

    For this particular widget, I'd like to be able to use Entity Framework to develop and map everything to the table.


    How can I achieve this? I've already installed Entity Framework from the NuGet package manager and created the code-first classes based on those tables.


    How do I use these entities on my widget now?

    I've read through custom modules (here), but the approach allowed doesn't match what I need since I'd have to create the table on the wizard and that is limiting my intended behaviour (for instance, it lacks support for foreign keys and uniqueidentifiers).
