DataSet Relation Question

    I have recently discovered the XSD DataSet tool (with Form Designer) in
    VS2008. It seems very useful to act as part of my DAL generation!

    I know all about relational databases, pk, fk, etc... My MySQL database is
    already setup to be completely relational

    My question is, what is the idea behind the "Relation" control in the
    Toolbox? Of what benefit is it to link them in the form designer (for some
    reason my tables don't show up automatically link)? Is it just useful for
    the developer to recall how they are linked? Or are there other benefits?

    The db already has the relations, so I guess I'm unclear as to how I should
    use it or what the benefit is....

    Thanks!
