DataSource Controls :: Entity Framework - Send The Values To Be Inserted As Strings To The DAL?

Feb 5, 2010

I've sucefully created a method to insert values through EF, but i've a question (maybe, a newbie question).

Should i send the values to be inserted as strings to the DAL, and then i create the object there or should i create the object in View Layer and then send him to DAL?

Example 1 (DAL):


Example 1 (View Layer, on a click button for example):


Or should i receive the strings in DAL like this: public bool NoticiasInsert(string tituloPT, string tituloEN, string descricaoPT, string descricaoEN)

Then i create the object cdcModel.noticias and set the fields there with the strings values.

What do you advice me to do? I know that both ways works, but i'm trying to develope with better patterns (i don't know if this is the exacly word, sorry my bad english)

cdcModel.noticias campos = new cdcModel.noticias();
campos.tituloPT = "a";
campos.tituloEN = "b";
campos.descricaoPT = "a";
campos.descricaoEN = "a";
if (DAL.NoticiasInsert(campos)

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.

DataSource Controls :: Microsoft Matrix Framework DataGrid - Update Command - Convert Empty Strings To NULL?

Sep 30, 2010

we have a AutoGenerateColumns-enabled WmxDataGrid in which we are able to update table rows in a DataBase connected with a SqlDataSource.

Each time we clear a field an empty string is written to the database where we want to write DBNull values.

At the moment we generate the update string via UPDATE... SET.. and the SQL Server function NULLIF(value, '').

Works proper but when I want to add the values to e.NewValues in BeginUpdate event I'm not able to read the values from the auto generated text boxes. How do I do that? Is there an easier way to automatically convert empty strings to NULL values?

Then a new article is saved to the database but the entity framework must be generating a new blank Guid and saving that to the database rather than allowing it to be auto generated as the articleid that shows up saved is all 0.How can i get the Entity Framework to let the Database generate the ArticleId?

I have 3 tables User, role and UserInRole THe entity frame work made entities for User and Role and I have successfully made a join with the user and role entities using user.add(role); but I can't seem to get it to remove the link (I want to retain the user and role just remove their association).

User u = context.User
.Where(n => n.ApplicationName == application)
.Where(n => n.Username == username).First();
Roles r = context.Roles
.Where(n => n.ApplicationName == application)

DataSource Controls :: Use Database Instead Of MDF File With Entity Framework?

Jan 11, 2010

I transfered my data from MDF files to MS SQL Database, but I can't get it working with entity framework.

My Old connection string is:

metadata=res://*/Models.EntityModel.csdl|res://*/Models.EntityModel.ssdl|res://*/Models.EntityModel.msl;provider=System.Data.SqlClient;provider connection string="Data Source=.SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|TripsDB.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User

I put all data from TripsDB.mdf to Trips table in local MS SQL 2008 Enterprise database. Also changed connection string to:

Server=WIESIEK;Database=Trips;Trusted_Connection=True;providerName=System.Data.SqlClient;User ID=Jan J. Roman

But my application throws System.ArgumentExceptio with message: The 'server' keyword is not supported.

on line:

private TripsDBEntities2 _entity = new TripsDBEntities2();where TripsDBEntities2 is Entity Framework instance.

DataSource Controls :: Entity Framework EntityKey (Defaults To 0?)

Feb 6, 2010

Id - PK
Id - PK
TypeId - FK to CarType

I have this simple example here and I want to insert a new CarDetail into the database but for some reason I cannot get the EntityKey to work in EF4 and Framework4 beta 2.

If i declare the following

car_detail.CarTypeReference.EntityKey = new System.Data.EntityKey("MyDB.CarType", "Id", 1)

Each time i try to call SaveChanges, it throws a INSERT constraint error saying that there is a conflict between CarType and CarDetail with the FK. It just seems like the hard coded 1 for CarType is NOT being passed through but instead the default value of 0. What is going on?

If i call car_detail.TypeId = 1 then it works fine with the INSERT.

Why doesn't the EntityKey method work?

DataSource Controls :: Entity Framework And Architecture Of Model - Create Application Using EF

Feb 10, 2010

I can't to understand clearly how to create strong and quickly application using EF. For example, I have class ForumPost (table ForumPost) for select one of record I write method like:

public ForumPost ForumPost(int ForumPostID)
(from i in _dataContext.ForumPostSet
where i.ForumPostID == ForumPostID select i).First();

all works. But on page (I use ASP.NET MVC) I should display info from another linked tables, ForumName (each post have ForumID) etc. So, I modify this method to:

public ForumPost ForumPost(int ForumPostID)
(from i in _dataContext.ForumPostSet
where i.ForumPostID == ForumPostID select i).First();

ok, all works. Then I want to make some actions in model with ForumPost, i.e.

public void RootPost(int PostID, ref Models.ForumPost Root)
ForumPost post = ForumPost(PostID);
if (post.RootPost != null)
Root = ForumPost(post.RootPost.ForumPostID);
Root = post;

it works too. But problem is in speed. I not need in RootPost all those includes. So, I should to create one more method like:

private ForumPost ForumPostIncludes1(int ForumPostID)
(from i in _dataContext.ForumPostSet
where i.ForumPostID == ForumPostID
select i).First();

then ForumPostIncludes2, ForumPostIncludes3 etc... second way - redesign RootPost with LINQ expr, not with call another method. But in this way difficulties to change DB. third way? How to do it correctly?

DataSource Controls :: Best Way To Handle Inserts For Entities When Using FormViews And Entity Framework 4?

I am trying to get some guidance with this issue:

I have a Customer object that has two address ID fields (one for HomeAddress and one for WorkAddress)

I am loading the Address Objects by using Include="HomeAddress, WorkAddress" and then binding to the properties using the Navigation Property on the Customer Entity

Can I use just one FormView for doing the Insert/Updates and binding it to an EntityDataSource or would I have to do all the Inserting/Updating manually?

DataSource Controls :: Foreign Key Reference Not Updating With ADO.NET Entity Framework Silverlight/Data Service

Apr 8, 2010

I'm trying to insert a new EF object containing a reference to a related table via foreign key, and cannot get the reference stored in the new object. I have two tables in a SQL Server 2008 Database:

Component Templates

with a Foreign Key linking them thus: ComponentTemplates:ID [0..1<->*] PartGroups:ComponentTemplateID

I have imported these tables into a .NET web application project .edmx file (using a new ADO.NET Entity Data Model), and then created a Data Service which I then reference in a Silverlight 3.0 project. The objects are available as expected in the data context called by my Silverlight app and load correctly. Now, when I try to save a reference of ComponentTemplate into a newly created PartGroup, the PartGroup object is created in the database, but the value of ComponentTemplateID in the newly created table record is NULL.


(Note that _ctCtrl.ComponentTemplate is a confirmed non-NULL object reference to the parent object on which PartGroup is a child)

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework ContainsAll Matching Multiple Values

Jan 21, 2011

So, have a search form where users can enter one or more keywords, these keywords are then held in a List<string> called keywords. Now using Entity Framework have an Organisation entity with a Name field. What I want to do is select those organisations whose name contains all the keywords. I don't care if they are in the right order or not but it just contain all the keywords. Also organsiations is a big table in the database so I don't want to materialise all the organsiation objects on the server and then loop through them. So what I'm looking for (excuse my LINQ naivety here) is equivalent to the non-existent LINQ statement:


I'm sure this must have already been answered but just can't find it.
