Does anyone know of a basic UI prototyper for CSLA business objects? I am looking for a control that will take a business object and dynamically display and bind the properties and collections of the business object. A generic control like this could be used to perform basic prototyping of the business object.

I can't think of anything off the top of my head that will automatically create a form based on an object. I am sure there is an obscure niche of tools out there somewhere. Something on the WPF side that might help you, XAML Power Toys.

I couple features of interest:

I had tried the XAML Power Toys on some of my CSLA objects and it gives me errors about not being able to reflect some properties it needs.  Have anybody been successful using it on CSLA objects?

The latest version of Code Complete code generator generates full windows and WPF applications based on CSLA. The applications follow very closely the pattern in the PTracker application. It requires a database. Samples applications generated from the Northwind and PTracker databases are available at
