I am using typed dataset in my current project.I came to know that currently there is no support for nullable types in typed dataset and visual studio code generator also does not generate nullable types for columns.I would prefer if a primitive datatype like int that allow nulls in database level can be specified as nullable types in typed dataset.

What a surprise!!?? - no update, no word, no fix.

Maybe theyre working on a new db access framework to replace the entity relationship framework. Then that can get binned just like LINQ to SQL.

Personally, I find this rediculous. This has been an issue for 6 years and when you finally introduced nullable types into .Net Framework, you didn't think to fix this?

"this will be considered as a high priority item for subsequent release"

Excellent - we're all waiting with bated breath for this to be resolved in VS2010 then. It will definitely be worth the 6 year(!!!) wait since the first reports back in 2004.

Why does this say it's resolved and closed?

is there a followup to this item. i noticed it was set to "closed" but has yet to be resolved, even in the new .net 3.5 sp1 release

Thanks for your suggestion on improving nullable type support in Typed Dataset. Unfortunately, we won't be able to address this issue in Visual Studio "Orcas". However, this will be considered as a high priority item for subsequent release.
