MVCThe generated ADO.NET Entity Data Model loses ordinal positions of columns and reorders Entity Set column names alphabetically. This causes the columns in a new MVC VIEW to appear alphabetically and needs to be reordered by hand. I am using MySQL Database.

How can I retain the ordinal positions of columns?

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?

MVC :: Using Data From Multiple Entity Framework4 Model Entity Objects In MVC2 Controller?

Sep 29, 2010

getting data from multiple Entities models into an MVC controller. Most of the examples I have seen for using EF in an MVC2 app only use a single entitiy.

I have just started using MVC2 in C# using the Entity Framework models (CIOps.model) created from an SQL database. I can create the controller and views using single tables of the model in MVC2, but I just cannot get my head around how to get data from multiple entity tables into the controller (similar to joins in T-SQL). I have included an example below of the controller code that works with a single entity table, tbl_tours (tbl_tour in DB).

Could someone please illustrate how this code would be changed to include additional columns from FK tables in addition to tbl_tours columns. E.g. the clients name from the tbl_clients, the coordinators name from the tbl_employees, and costs from tbl_costs entities? Is it possible to do this directly using the EF model entities/classes that are already created and not use LINQ, POCO, Repositories, etc.? The FK relationships are already in the EF models. I have included the whole controller code, but I just need a few examples of how to join the multiple entities, not rewrite every CRUD function function in the controller. I think this will get me over the hump in using EF in an MVC2 App. Also ignore the fact I am using the home controller, this will change in the application.

Forms Data Controls :: Using Formview, Tables, And Access Database Along With The BLL & DAL Model?

Jul 7, 2010

Really new to C# & Web developing - but have used the DAL & BLL model from a number of the turorials. Have a situation that I not sure the best way to accomplish. I have an application dealing with courses, books, etc. utilizing an Access Database. All was going well in creating an on-line catalog using Formview and tables to display the db values stored in the Course Table (Course ID the key). User is able to use dropdown list to locate the course - dropdown list showed the Course Nbr & Name, but used the Course ID to get the detail. This issue appeared when they introduced a Prerequisite field in the Course Table. This contains the Course ID of the prerequisite course, but they want to display the Course Nbr and Name in the table field. So today it show 18 (Course ID) and they want B101 Intro to Biology. Hope I have provided enough information of what the code looks like below


<asp:FormView ID="FVGeeralidades" runat="server" DataKeyNames="ClaveAsignaturas"
<asp:TableRow ID="TableRow5" runat="server">
<asp:TableCell ID="TableCell11" runat="server" HorizontalAlign="Left" Text="<STRONG>1.6</STRONG> Prerrequisito"
<asp:TableCell ID="TableCell12" runat="server"></asp:TableCell>
<asp:TableCell ID="PrerrequisitoValue" runat="server" HorizontalAlign="Left">
<%# Eval("AsignaturaPrerrequisito")%>

Here is also the OBJECT DATA SOURCE
<asp:ObjectDataSource ID="ObjectDataSource1" runat="server" OldValuesParameterFormatString="original_{0}"
SelectMethod="GetCourseByCourseID" TypeName="CoursesBLL">
<asp:ControlParameter ControlID="DDLCourse" Name="CourseID" PropertyName="SelectedValue"
Type="String" />

Forms Data Controls :: Entity Framework Using 2 Tables Databind() To A Gridview?

Jun 16, 2010

I am new to Entity Framework and working my way through it little by little. I think I have it figured out on how to get data into and out of 1 table at a time now the challenge is 2 tables into a gridview.
I have a user table that has a list of threads that a user can mark to track. Easy enough. Assign the userid number & threadid to a table with a push button while the user is logged in and viewing any of the posts that are on that thread. The new challange is to get only the posts that the user has marked to track. SQL easy. Entity not sure what to do.

If I make a view or stored procedure and add it to the database that would be an extra step. To join the 2 tables as in sql Select posts from posts where track.userid = @userid join track on post.userid=track.userid Seems Entity was made to avoid this type of thing. Than once the data is gathered I need to bind it to a gridview()

ADO.NET :: Entity Data Model - How To Use

Feb 16, 2011

I program in ASP.NET for a while now. My applications uses always the DataSet. Some told me that Entity Data Model is the DataSet for LINQ. Now I want to try to working with it I have some questions but can't find the answers. I hope someone can. When I build an application I use the 3-tier structure. So Presentation-layer, Business-layer and the Data-layer. Normally I had some classes in the Data layer with specific methods to interact with the DataSet. When I read the table or something I create an object for the business layer.

With the Entity Data Model it seems a little bit confusing. If I read a table (for example Company) the edmx has created an class already. So is the edmx a replacement for the Data-layer and also for the Business layer? Is the edmx also a good use for multi-user application or is a connected application better?

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.

Share Entity Data Model Amongst Layers?

May 17, 2010

How can I share the auto-generated entity data model (generated object classes) amongst all layers of my C# web app whilst only granting query access in the data layer? This uses the typical 3 layer approach: data, business, presentation.

My data layer returns an IEnumerable<T> to my business layer, but I cannot return type T to the presentation layer because I do not want the presentation layer to know of the existence of the data layer - which is where the entity framework auto-generated my classes.

It was recommended to have a seperate layer with just the data model, but I'm unsure how to seperate the data model from the query functionality the entity framework provides.

Update Doesn't Work In Entity Data Model?

Jul 10, 2010

I use Entity Data model for work with database.

In my program, I want to update a record of user table, so I use the code below to do this.

In this function I send changed user info and then overwrite the information with the current user information.

After I run objUser = _user; and then call objContext.SaveChanges(); to save the changes.

But when I do this, the changes are not persisted to the database. I use this code for another programs but in this case the code does not work!

public void Update(tbLiUser _user)
LinkContext objContext = this.Context;
tbLiUser objUser = objContext.tbLiUsers.First(u => u.tluId == _user.tluId);
objUser = _user;
