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?

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.

C# - Only Update Actually Updated Fields In Entity Framework?

Sep 13, 2010

Quite a common use case, it seems, is when re-populating an object from a form is to go

myobj.Name = "textbox value";
myobj.Content = "textbox content";

But, name may not have changed, it may only be a change to the content textbox.

The problem is that entity framework treats Name as changed just because I've set it's value, regardless of whether I've set exactly the same value or not.

Ideally, I would like EF to only mark things as changed if they genuinely have changed.

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.

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.

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.

C# - How To Update Entity Framework

Mar 20, 2011

I have been updating my Entity Framework by simply right clicking and clicking on "update model from database". I usually go under the "Add" tab and then click the tables and click finish. I also use "refresh" sometimes as well. What are the differences between these? and also when I do refresh or add sometimes the entity comes out wrong or keeps some of the old information in cache, how can I just get the entity to match my database and clean out any of the old cached things.

Entity Framework Update Methods

Sep 28, 2010

I have a few entities I'd like to update at the same time. However I'd like to write individual update methods in each classes partial class file, for each entity and call them all at the same time. For example:

public sub UpdateEntity1()
end sub

public sub UpdateEntity2()
end sub

public sub UpdateEntity3()
end sub

public sub UpdateAll()
end sub

My question is how do I manage the object context? do I create one object context in the class I'm calling UpdateAll(), then pass it as a parameter to each individual update method? Or do I create a new context for each Update? I'd like to use the same context because the object are related, and this would decrease the db calls to update all the records.

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework - How To Update A Running Production Environment

Feb 21, 2011

I have read some articles about the new enitity framework and I think it looks very cool from a development perspective.

considering a production environment loaded with data. How does one apply changes to the model? You cannot regenerate the model and in most large organizations, database changes are executed by DBS's and not developers. In such situaitons, it is the role of the developer to develop delta-scripts that the dba can execute.

My experiense with Hibernate (Java) and the like is that you have to pay double when using such frameworks.

ADO.NET :: Update A Record For Multi-user App Using Entity Framework .net 3.5?

Mar 23, 2011

I have a webservice which of course has to be .net 3.5 (a side note is does anyone know why you can't create a webservice using .net 4.0?).

Anyhow it is using entity framework, which I have recently discovered was a really bad mistake to try to use this in .net 3.5.

I have a table "Licenses" with the following columns: LicenseKey, ProductCode, OrderID, Seq, UserName.

In my asp.net 4.0 application I can simply do the following to perform an update:


But it appears there is no ExecuteStoreCommand in .net 3.5 with entity framework. Can anyone explain to me how to accomplish the same thing? The thing I need to point out is that because this is a multi-user access service. I need to verify that SQL will only update the given record where OrderID and Seq is what I tell it ONLY if the UserName is already null. So if two users process the same statement at the same time only one would work and the other would not because the sql should fail (or return 0, rather than a 1) for the second one.

C# - Entity Framework - Update Field Value To Current DB Server Time?

I've pulling back an entity object from a database and I need to update the date to the DB server's date/time - usually you could accomplish this by setting it with the SQL getDate() function.

How can I accomplish this in the following scenario:

var client = context.client.Where(c=>c.clientID == 1).FirstOrDefault();

// the value needs to be the value of the server's current date, i.e, getDate()... not DateTime.Now
client.someDate = <somevalue>;

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.
