the entity diagram code generation item option appears to not work in vs2012 . if i create a new project and add a entity data model,
with some tables from my database, then compile my project. When i then right click on the entity diagram and select codegeneration item the dialog which opens asks to choose a project type and no items are selectable, if i choose online and select the ef5.x
dbcontext generator for c# nothing appears to happen after adding, i cannot see any new items added to the solution.
this does work in vs2010. with mvc4rc and using ef5.

I can't reproduce this issue with the VS 2012 RC. After adding the DbContext templates I see a MyModel.Context.tt and a MyModel.tt file added to my project where MyModel is the name I used.
If you right click on the designer surface and select properties what do you see for "Code Generation Strategy"? Is it None or Default?
