Is LightSwitch Useless?

Is LightSwitch Useless? I have used it to create a GUI to my SQL AZURE database, but there is no generated C# code go look at. Without this, I cannot easily customize what I want to do.

I don't speak LigthSwitch. From what I've seen, I'm sure the answer to your question is "No". But as I don't speak LigthSwitch, I couldn't fill you in on any details. So instead, I'll post you a blog link, where I think you'll be able to find the answer to your question and a lot of other LigthSwitch information.

Jan Van Der Haegen has a LigthSwitch blog and he seems to know what he's writing about: http://janvanderhaegen.wordpress.com/

Finally, I must question your statement that it's seeing generated C#-code that makes it possible to customize. From the little I know about LigthSwitch - it's NOT seeing C#-code that makes it easy to build and customize apps...

LightSwitch is extremely powerful and extensible. You should check this link with the how-to videos at the bottom to get a feel of it: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/gg604823.aspx

And LightSwitch VS Solution Explorer offers 2 types of views: Logical and File. You should choose File View if you want to see the typical source files, folders etc.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
