MVC :: How To Use UpdateModel With An Identity Column

I'm sure this is simple, but in all my searches, I can't find out how to do this:

I'm trying to use UpdateModel, but I keep getting a "value is required" error on my ID column, which is properly defined as and identity column.

SQL Server Identity / Largest Number Record Id (identity) Column Can Hold
I am developing a application and i am using SQL Server 2008. I took a IDENTITY column as Record_ID for detail table where i will have trillions of records per year. So just want to ask whats the largest number record id (identity) column can hold and in ASP.NET which data type i should use to handle record id as i am using this id as a reference to update the table data. I don't want to end up being trapped some day.

UpdateModel Or UpdateModel Where Model Has An Array?
I have a view model class that looks something like this

public class ViewModel
public string Name { get; set; }
public IList<SubViewModel> Subs { get; set; }

Now when I call try update model it replaces the "Subs" list with a new one rather than just updating the IsSet property at the correct index.

DataSource Controls :: Reset Identity Column To A New Value?
Resetting IDENTITY column to a new valueDuring application development we always entry some test data also our tester test with test data and as a result if the table contains IDENTITY columns( specially ID column) which incremented to the number of data already entered.

However, when the application goes running with real data to the client and the client want his ID values from starting 1, then we need to RESEED the value of the IDENTITY column of the table after clearing all data. This can be done as bellows:


However, can be reseed with any values instead of zero(0) in the above statement.

Forms Data Controls :: Error When Inserting Into Table - Cannot Insert Explicit Value For Identity Column In Table
I am working on a web app for an online photo album. It is the last project in Scott Mitchell's book: "ASP.Net 2.0 in 24 hours".

I am creating a page where users can enter new photo images.  The functionality for uploading an image will come later. I am working on just inserting a new row into the Pictures table with an optional category, a required title and a required description.

I am getting an error when I try to insert a new row.

Here is a screenshot of the page with a shot of the dropdown list.

The Categories are user-specific. I am getting the correct values retrieved.


There are two pretty simple database tables involved here.

NOTE: The CategoryID and PIctureID are both autoincrement integer columns.


The page uses a DetailsView that uses a SqlDataSource that uses the Pictures table. (The DetailsView's Default Mode property is set to "Insert". The "Enable Inserting" checkbox is also checked.)

The dropdown list uses a dropdown control that uses a SqlDataSource that uses the Categories table.

When the "Insert" button is clicked the CategoryID value associated with selected (Category) Name on the dropdown list will be used along with the Title and Description values to insert a row in to the Pictures table.  (If no Category value is selected, then a null value will be used for the CategoryID. This is OK because the CategoryID column in the Pictures table allows nulls.)

My problem is that I am getting this error:

Cannot insert explicit value for identity column in table 'Pictures' when IDENTITY_INSERT is set to OFF.

(FYI: I have the full version of both Visual Studio and SQL Server.)

Here is my source code for the page:

MVC :: UpdateModel In LINQ To SQL
I have been trying to develop edit functionality for a table in database using LINQ to SQL classes (.dbml). Thoiugh updatmodel does not fail, it still does not update the database. I have tried several different things with no resort. I have something going live in a day or so, Below is my code for controller class in MVC 1.1

//Overload edit view for postback
public object Edit(Guid id, FormCollection form)
//Get the row ID which is being edited
var Weballoc = db.WebAllocationImports.Single(w => w.OGReference == id);
// Weballoc.Side = Request.Form["Side"].ToString();
// Weballoc.Commission = Convert.ToDouble(Request.Form["Commission"]);
UpdateModel(Weballoc, new[] { "ClientSubAccount", "Quantity", "TradeDate", "SecurityID", "Side", "Commission", "NetAmount", "TradeID", "Price" });
catch (Exception ex)
return View("ShowCGMAllocations",allocation);
The following is a sample of my edit.aspx view
<% using (Html.BeginForm()) {%>
<label for="ClientSubAccount">ClientSubAccount:</label>
<%= Html.TextBox("ClientSubAccount", Model.ClientSubAccount) %>
<%= Html.ValidationMessage("ClientSubAccount", "*") %>
<input type="submit" value="Save" />
<% } %>

CTP 5 EF Code First UpdateModel()?
I've been struggling with this issue for a few days now and I'm still not able to figure it out. I've created a sample project to hopefully help figure this issue out. The main issue is when I load a user from my context and perform an UpdateModel() on this object it seems to delete my entity references and I get null references in child objects. Here is the error: The operation failed: The relationship could not be changed because one or more of the foreign-key properties is non-nullable. When a change is made to a relationship, the related foreign-key property is set to a null value. If the foreign-key does not support null values, a new relationship must be defined, the foreign-key property must be assigned another non-null value, or the unrelated object must be deletedHere is the link to the code:
Here (line 42, causes the error to happen)

MVC's UpdateModel And Different Locals?
I am working on a web app which will be used in many different countries.I have a DB entity called Product which has properties one of which is of type double and is called Quantity.The user enters that via a form and then I call UpdateModel() to populate the Quantity and other properties in the entity. So far it works well.My question is the following: What if I have a user from Sweden for example enter a value like 1,2 which in USA is 1.2 and then I run UpdateModel( )  in the controller's Post Create() Action. Is

UpdateModel( ) smart enough to know that this was entered from a browser with IcultureInfo = swedish and parse 1,2 the right way?

I did not see a signature that takes a cultureInfo ( like double.parse() or Date.Parse() ) so I am assuming that it does check the cultureInfo but this is just an assumption. I am going off to test it now  which won't be trivial since I need to set up two machines with 2 different cultures

MVC Controller UpdateModel Not Updating?
Trying to get UpdateModel to work for my User. The User class has basic string properties like CompanyName, FirstName, LastName, etc so nothing exotic. Here is the header for my view:

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Public.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<User>" %>

After they submit, in my controller, the code looks like this:

MVC :: UpdateModel Calls A Property Get On The Model?
as the behaviour of the UpdateModel<T> changed in MVC 2 (RTM)? Since then I have the following problem when UpdateModel is called:UpdateModel<T1>(record, properties);record is typeof(Jumbo.Juist.Models.Bezorging) and properties is a string[] containing "Winkelnummer" and "OudRoutenummer".This now fails, because a get-property is being accessed: BerekendeAankomstTijd. In the past, it didn't fail. IMHO, this validation should be skipped, because it's only a getter (and thus/also not included in the string[] of properties to update)
