How to: Get an LobSystem and an Entity

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms501019.aspx



It's not the same dialog picker  box, but it gives an example of how to look up instances and entities.

I ended up putting that data  into a drop down box  like below:

//load all BDC entities


NamedLobSystemInstanceDictionary sysInstances = ApplicationRegistry.GetLobSystemInstances();
foreach (string insName in sysInstances.Keys)
{
foreach (string entName in sysInstances[insName].GetEntities().Keys)
{
ddlList.Items.Add("BDC: "+insName + ": " + entName);
}
}
