Cast Exception When Try To Insert Entity In Entity Framework (using Code-f)

Feb 9, 2011

I get an cast exception when i am trying to insert an entity in Entity Framework (using code-first). From this code :

public virtual T Insert(T entity)
return Context.Set<T>().Add(entity);

The cast exception is like "impossible to cast ...Collection'1(Entity) to type (Entity)" I can't figure out why. I am pretty sure ive done everything right. Post entity

public class Post
public long PostId { get; private set; }
public DateTime date { get; set; }
public string Subject { get; set; }
public User User { get; set; }
public Category Category { get; set; }
public string Body { get; set; }
public virtual ICollection<Tag> Tags { get; private set; }
public Post()
Category = new Category();
if (Tags == null)
Tags = new Collection<Tag>();

Entity Framework -Update Entity When Another Entity Is Updated

Jun 30, 2010

I have an EDM, it includes the entities extension and history. My goal is to use history to keep track of all the changes made to extension entity. For example, if extension with ID 223 has its property 'Name_Display' changed - I want the history entity to record this.

I'm using ASP.NET with VB.NET. Where in my code do I put the hook to say, "update the history entity" and what should that hook look like?

I use VS 2010 Ultimate. I created an ' web application' from scratch, added a 'ADO.NET Entity Model' to my project (EF4).

"The metadata specified in the connection string could not be loaded. Consider rebuilding the web project to build assemblies that may contain metadata. The following error(s) occurred:"

Exporting Entity Framework 4 Data Model To Entity Framework 3.5?

Oct 25, 2010

Is there a way to export a EF 4.0 Data Model to EF 3.5?

I looked around and found that we are not able to access EF 4.0 from a ASP.Net 3.5 project here: [URL]

Our project is the 1st to go to .Net 4.0 using Entity Framework and we (the team) were wondering if there was a way for the other projects that "might" need to access our data that are still using the .Net 3.5 framework.

How To Insert, Many-To-Many, Entity Framework

Mar 18, 2011

I have 3 tables in the database, with a Many to Many relationship:

Assessment(assessID, userID, A, B, C)Grade(gradeID, scoreA, scoreB, scoreC)AssessmentGrade(assessID, gradeID) [PK and FK]I can already Insert into the Assessment AND Grade tables without any problems.I cannot seem to figure out how to Insert into the AssessmentGrade table. There is no separate Entity, because there is only the PK/FK in the AssessmentGrade. I have looked at some tutorials, but none of them seem to address my situation.

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework - Entity Stored Procedure Mapping - Can't Update

Feb 10, 2011

I am mapping a stored procedure to an entity by right clicking on the entity (in the .edmx) and selecting "Stored Procedure Mapping." This brings you to a Mapping Details - "Name of Entity" Window that allows you to select the insert, update, and delete stored procedures associated with the Entity. It also maps the stored procedure parameter to the Entity "Property" (Column).

I'm gettin an error "error 2042: Parameter Mapping specified is not valid." The cause of the error is fairly obvious, in the Insert stored procedure that has been selected, a 'CHAR' parameter is being mapped to an Int32 Entity Property. I altered the stored procedure parameter to match the entity, I deleted the stored procedure, readded, and reslected it as the Insert function. I also cleaned, validated, updated model from database. No matter what I do, the parameter list in the mapping details doesn't reflect the change to the stored procedure. It's stuck on a char --> int32 mapping, even though it has been changed, like it's buried deep in meta data some where.

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework Copy Entity And Change PK And Save Old And New

Mar 31, 2011

I have a stupid problem with the Entity Framework. I get the following Exception:


I have an entity with a 4 fields representing the primary key. I copy it via serialization (works fine). I set the old entity to not valid (Datefield set to a date in the past, this field is part of the PK) and set the copied entity to DateTime.Now.Date. When I call context.AddObject I get the Exception above. I tried copying the entity via reflection but the entity has 3-4 references. And when copied, I get another Exception before even Adding the entity to the context. I also tried setting newObj.EntityKey = null and reset all the fields neccessary for the PK. I just want a whole copy of an entity with a different primary key (and some other fields changed too) and Create it in the database.

Insert Record Into Mysql Db With Entity Framework

Apr 19, 2010

the problem is that it will insert a new record in a mysql table, I have already done the mapping of the mysql db and I have already done tests returning data and everything works. Now I read from a file, where there are queries written, I have them run me back and the result of true or false based on the final outcome of single query written to the file. Txt; I did this:

using (var w = new demotestEntities ())
foreach (var l listaqueri)
var p = we.CreateQuery <category> (l);
we.SaveChanges ();
result = true;

but it does not work, I sense that it returns no errors, but neither the result given written in the query. txt file is as follows: INSERT INTO category (id, name) VALUES (null, 'test2')

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework: Getting Key Of Newly Inserted Entity?

Feb 3, 2011

Here's a simple code snippet where I create a new Entity object and call SaveChanges() to create a new record in the mapped database table.


What I'm trying to figure out is whether there is a way to derive this new key for my entity, e, from the ObjectContext, m? The reason for this is that the way my actual code is structured, my entity object is already out of scope at the point where I call the SaveChanges() method.

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework Code First For Print Shop

Feb 14, 2011

I have a good friend who owns a print shop and he has asked me to create him a simple online shop where he can take print orders. His print shop location is kind of hidden, and business isn't going well at the moment. This is why he wants to move online. I said I would do it for him, but it will take a while before he has anything to look at. Where I am most stuck is the Model. The problem with this sorts of shops is that each Product, depending on its category would have different attributes. How ? Here is an example: [URL] A user would choose a product category, then he/she would get to the following: [URL] Now he/she would click the Order link to order a certain qunatity. On the next page, depending on what category they are in, they'll get a form where they can choose order attributes. There aren't many attribues for BUSINESS CARDS. But if they had chosen CARBONLESS FORMS, they would get options to tweak like: Squencial Numbering to start from 103490Position of Numbering..etc

I asked for advice at the SQL Server forums, and finally I came up with something like this:[URL] But with that database design, I will have a lot of type casting to do for the attributes ! << In fact I'm not sure if that would be even possible. Then I watched this video, and the author does something cool ! she uses Inheritance. Then I started Wonding ... Is it possible for me to have a Parent [ Product ] class, and have its children entities with different (added) attributes?
