MVC :: Creating Foreign Key In Model Classes?

May 31, 2010

I am trying to create a relation between 2 of my model classes. I have separated my Model classes to be in their own project "Domain Model" and the application exists in the "WebUI" project.

I have 2 models.... SupportIssues and Users....

SupportIssues has a column UserID which is also a primary key in the Users table.

I want to create a relationship where one user can have many support issues.

I just can figure out how to do this?

Here is a snippet of my supportIssue.cs class:


How can i link UserID to my User.cs class?

Is it anything to do with the [Associate] tag?

Visual Studio :: Configure SQL Server In VS2010 / Creating Model Classes With Linq To SQL?

Mar 17, 2011

I can't believe I'm having so much trouble finding this information. I'm endeavouring to learn about creating model classes with Linq to SQL. By default VS2010 wants to use SQL Express, but our organisation has several database servers for development so I'd rather use one of those. PLEASE can somebody tell me how I can configure VS2010 to do that, as all I get is 'A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server ... Verify that the instance name is correct'. Yeah, thanks Microsoft. Actually telling me how to verify the instance name would be a really good move here.

Map Model Classes To ViewModel Classes Or Aggregate Model Classes In ViewModel Classes

Dec 15, 2010

I'm curious as to what people consider better practice, between duplicating model structure in the view model and using a mapping tool to move data between the two, or aggregate the model inside the view model, i.e. have a property on the view model class that is a reference to the actual model. Which is considered a better approach in general?

MVC :: How To Use DropDownListFor With Model Binding For Foreign Key Column

Dec 18, 2009

I have an edit MVC view page that is built up with the following

<%= Html.DropDownList("PatientID", (SelectList)ViewData["Patients"]) %>

I want to use Html.DropDownListFor, but it doesn't work because it builds up the select list with the name "Patient_PatientID" or "Patient.PatientID" and that then fails in the update.

The controller sets up the following

ViewData["Patients"] = new SelectList(scheduleRepository.FindAllPatients(), "PatientID", "Lastname", appointment.Patient.PatientID);

I can save with this code

Appointment appointment = scheduleRepository.GetAppointment(id);
appointment.PatientReference.EntityKey = new EntityKey("SimpleScheduleEntities.Patients", "PatientID", Int32.Parse(collection["PatientID"]));

MVC :: Create View With A Model Class With A Lookup / Foreign Key?

May 14, 2009

I am following along with the Contact example [URL], and using my own model. Instead of the Contact class, mine has a foreign key field to a lookup table for "Locations." I have the following code.


When I fill out my Create view, and submit it I get the following error:

There is no ViewData item with the key 'LocationID' of type 'IEnumerable<SelectListItem>'.


I am guessing I need to add a Location parameter to my Post-Create action, so I can assign it to pagerToCreate.Location. but, how do i pass that in from the view, and is there a more auto-magic way?

MVC :: Display Foreign Key-bound Property From Model View

Apr 17, 2010

but I am new with MVC and database-driven applications.

I hava a table with Cities (ID,Name) and one with Businesses(ID,CityID,Name). The later has a foreign key relationship with the first table.

I used a linq-to-SQL class to create my models.

My problem is that I need to access the City Name(not the ID) when displaying the Business Model View.

How can I do this? if from my controller I call the View passing the auto-generated Business Model, I only have access to the ID.

MVC :: Change The Default Template For Model Classes?

Oct 15, 2009

I tried ASP.NET MVC 2 preview 2, and I have a question about the templates :

When I use Html.DisplayForModel(), the template used is the one which name is the same as my model type name : if my class name is "BlogPost" (for example), the template musst be in the file BlogPost.ascx.I didn't find how to change the default template used. I tried to use the UIHintAttribute to change the template, but it only works on properties, not on the class name.

Is there a way to change the default template for a class ?

MVC :: To Put The Data Annotation Attributes - On The Viewmodel Classes Or On The Model?

Mar 20, 2010

I am using a model but as I want to have clean views I use the viewmodel approach which is like a downsized model which I map in my controller actions before sending to the view or getting it back in a HttpPost attributed action.

My question is: where to put the data annotation attributes. On the viewmodel classes or on the model? If I get it clearly the viewmodel annotations are used for the client side generation of validation right?

Do does that mean I have to put data annotations everywhere on both model and viewmodel?

MVC :: Creating Table Records With Foreign Key Constraints / Separate Controllers?

Oct 3, 2010

I have multiple tables that are all linked back to a central table with foreign keys. I want to be able to create a new record in table 2, but I'm having trouble because I don't know how to create a new instance of table 2's record while referencing the ID of the record it will be tied to.


Database: Collection
Table: Collection Field 1: id Field 2: name
Table: Book Field 1: collectionId Field 2: id Field 3: name

Now, I don't want to be able to create a book without setting it's collectionID, but I can't figure out how this should be divided in the controllers/views.

Should Book have a controller separate from Collection, or should the Collection controller have a createBook method, separate from it's own create method?

I want to call the createBook method (from it's own controller, or the Collection controller) from the Collection Details view.

When I invoke the create method of Book, how do I create a new Book that is instantiated with the collectionId set from the details view of the Collection item that was listed in the details view?

I should point out, I'm using the entity framework for my model, and I'm definitely new to this.

Best Practice For Creating/Using LinqToSql Classes?

Sep 18, 2009

I've recently discovered LinqToSql classes where you simply drag over tables from your datasource and it automatically generates psuedo classes that can be used.What is the best practice for creating/using LinqToSql classes?For instance, if my database contains 20 tables (assuming that the 5 table would be related to on another), should all these be dragged and contained within 1 LinqToSql.dbml? Or should it be separated into 4 dbml classes (all related tables in their respective dbml class)? Does having all of them in 1 dbml hurt performance?

Object Relational Designer Not Creating LINQ To SQL Classes?

Sep 23, 2009

I'm a complete .NET novice working my way through a book at the moment to get to grips with things.

I'm trying to use LINQ to SQL and create classes in Visual Web Developer 2008. This is what I've done:

- Right clicked on the app_code folder in my project, and gone to add > new item.

- Selected 'LINQ to SQL classes', called it 'MyDatabase.dbml' and clicked add

- This creates a file and opens up O/R designer.

- I then click 'database explorer', go to the one table I have in my database (Called 'Clients'), and drag it on to the design pane. I can then see the table and all it's properties.

However, I'm then expecting it to generate a .vb file in the app_code folder that is the LINQ to SQL entity. However, no such file seems to be created. I've built the app, and the files still don't seem to be generated. I'm confused, these are all the steps I have in my book, and all I can see in guides online, why doesn't it work?

ADO.NET :: EF: Creating Database And Model?

Mar 25, 2011

This is a simplified example of what I need. Imagine a person table with several different club tables. Every person can belong to any number of clubs, but must belong to at least one club. The association would be a 1 to zero or one between the person table and each of the club tables.I've created the databases, then the entity model. The associations are all 1 to many, which isn't what I want.

Is there a way to modify the database so that the model is created correctly? I'm still building the project, making lots of changes, and I've had problems with updating the model, so I keep recreating it. Setting up the database correctly would be preferable.I'm trying to follow the quickstart here: [URL]but I'm using the SQL Management Studio designer, and I can't find how to fix the associations I add.

I've been reading about using or not using foreign keys in the model, but it's only confused me more. Can someone help me understand this? I'm starting to write code with what I have, and I'm running into problems. I'm about to start using joins, which means I'm trying to use a hammer instead of a saw because I don't know how to use my saw. I'd rather understand my tools and use them the right way!
