Dynamic Data App_code directory - where is it?

I was creating a new Dynamic Data web site and I noticed that when I go to create my linqtosql class, that it puts it in the root directory, not the app_code. So when I go to create a new asp.net directory, the app_code directory doesn't even show up.

But in the online videos, they are putting it in the app_code.

Where is this and why isn't it there? I am using the 3.5 framework SP1 install of Dynamic Data.

I'm going to assume you are using vs 2008 or vwd 2008, if this is the case then the app_code directory is not created by default. So you must right click the solution explorer and click "add asp.net folder" and select app_code.

Hope this helps,

have you create a web site or a web application? in a web application, it is not important to have the app_code folder as all the code is compiled into a DLL.

It's a Dynamic Data Web Application. there's only one option, (other than using entities).
I can manually add App_Code, but it doesn't offer it in my asp.net choices.
Éric MoreauSenior .Net ConsultantCommented:
again, in a Web Application, it is not required to have the App_Code folder because all the code behind is getting compiled into a DLL.
