Anyone ever use a CHAR data type as a PK / FK on SQL Server using ServiceStack? Any issues doing this? The goal is to have a very small PK (similar to TinyInt) but with a bit cleaner control within C#.
Just try it, can’t see why it would be an issue.
Had to ditch the idea. Haven’t had time to look into the underlying reasons, however many of the extensions / helpers were mismatched while querying. For example, some would convert to int while others to string. Ended up reverting back to a string data type with a StringLength(1) attribute. Even though that’ll create a varchar data type in the database, if I want to reduce it to a char(1) I can override the creation of the table.
