Hi Senthil,
    Thanks for your prompt response. Visual Studio has scaffolding feature for Asp.NET MVC. It generate views based on Entity Framework Context classes that provide CRUD functionality. But it does not support scaffolding for windows forms application. Some 3rd party tools like the one provided by DevExpress have support for scaffolding in Windows Forms. Does Syncfusion Essential Studio has any feature that automatically create forms UI based on Entity Framework.

Best Regards,
Bilal Akhtar

   Thanks for your prompt response. But, unfortunately, this is not what I am looking for. I have found a youtube video on this topic from DevExpress. Here is the link to that video. I was talking about this template generator.
