C# - How To Handle Foreign Keys With Entity Framework

Jan 3, 2011

how to handle foreign keys with Entity Framework, when editing or adding a new record. For example, I have a person table, which has a timezone_id linking to my timezone table.

But the model seems to not include timezone_id. I see it's a new way of doing things, but ... how do I store my record?

My method:


I can't do u.timezone_id = timezoneid;

I only have u.timezone (which seems to be the actual entity), and u.timezoneReference, which I am not sure what to do with.

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)

Entity Framework: Substituting Primary Columns For Foreign Key Columns

Jun 30, 2010

I've created a new ASP.NET website. I've generated an Entity Data Model from my database and have dropped a entitydatasource and gridview onto my page and wired up the gridview to pull from the entitydatasource. Now I get columns like this: id extension prefix did_flag len ten_id restriction_class_id sfc_id name_display building_id floor room phone_id department_id

In each case where the item is named something_id this reflects a foreign key relationship in the database - and I did choose to have the EDM expose foreign key relationships. I'd like to make it so the gridview pulls in the values for these foreign keys rather than just showing the ID numbers - so, for example, department_id might have a value of "101" right now but it should pull from the department table "Marketing".

Jul 9, 2010

C# - Checking Where All Foreign Key Is Being Used?

Jan 8, 2011

Lets say there's a table Table1 with Primary key as "MainID" and this MainID is being used as a Foreign key in many tables.

Now when I try and delete a record from Table1 who's MainID as foreign key is being used in some child tables, then it throws this exception that "Foreign key conflict n stuff"..

Now I want to design my Delete Strored procedure in such a way that first of all checks ALL the child t ables that have that foreign key column "MainID" and if MainID from Table1 is being used in any of the child tables it should return 0 . Based on this 0 value I want an alert box to show that will say "Still in use or watever" and wont let the user delete that record unless ALL the records in child tables have been deleted that were using that mainID from table1.

I can't use ON DELETE CASCADE. I want the user to delete child table records manually one by one. Only after child table records using the MainID have been deleted that the user can delete record from Table1

Identity_insert Error With Foreign Key

Jun 22, 2010

I've got 2 tables where each has a primary key which is also the identifier (Both fields called "id" in each table) In the "picture" table as one of the fields I've got the photoalbumid (The id of the "photoalbum" table). This field is just an int field. I'm getting the following error: "Cannot insert explicit value for identity column in table 'Picture' when IDENTITY_INSERT is set to OFF" Can anyone give me some advise? It's such a basic thing I would hope that there's just something small in the creation of the database that I've missed out. Let me know if you need more info.

Now i have a problem i cant figure out, i cant update data from a dropdown list, in the database using the updatemodel, that are foreign keys. Just all other data wich are not foreign keys and primary keys are updateable. These are automaticly created in the sql entity model.

SQL Server :: Assigning A Foreign Key?

Mar 10, 2011

I have two tables, which is table 'A' and table 'B'. Table B contains a foreign key that is referenced to table 'A'. The question now is, could I used an option in my project in visual studio an 'Others specify'? I believed that it's not possible, isn't it?If I have a selection that is bound to a datasource then is it possible to make an option 'Others specify' without adding the specified value to the database, which in turn would not have a unique ID? Table B contains the table A ID PK field, and all values from table A to table B should contain a unique ID.
