C# - Returning A Max/limit When Using .Include () In LINQ-to-Entities Queries?

Mar 6, 2011

Is there a way to cap the number of records returned when an .Include() method is called on an ObjectQuery<>? Basically, if one of my entities is in a one-to-many relationship, such as a Band entity to a list of Fan entities (where a band can have any number of fans), how can I limit the number of fans returned?

In the example: var band = ctx.Bands.Include("Fans").SingleOrDefault(b => b.BandId == someBandId);

If I use the Include, it will return all fans. How can I query that Fans navigation property to return only a subset or max?

Constraint On Linq To Entities Include?

Jun 22, 2010

I have a message table that self joins to itself where Message.ID == Message.Parent. So I have 1 Message with several ChildMessages. This is set up nicely with a Navigation property.

The code is currently:

var message = from m in soe.Messages.Include("ChildMessages")
where m.ID == id
&& m.IsActive
select m;
return message.FirstOrDefault();

What I really want is to only return 1 Message (that is equal to a particular ID and isActive) with all of its Active ChildMessages and I want to do it in one call to the database.

Returning Single - Row Queries Using DataAdapter - DataTable And DataRow

Feb 10, 2011

I'm fairly new to ASP.NET and am working through a tutorial that demonstrates the use of DataAdapter, DataTable, and DataRow classes. The tutorial focuses on binding returned DataTables to GridView objects - I'm having trouble understanding what to do to extract one row for display. I've found I can do the following:

ProductsTableAdapter productsAdapter = new ProductsTableAdapter();
Northwind.ProductsTable productsTable = productsAdapter.GetSingleByProductID(searchID)
Northwind.ProductsRow productRow = (Northwind.ProductsRow)productsTable.Rows[0];

A ProductsTable should be able to return its own ProductRows w/o resorting to a cast, no? Can't find how to do it otherwise. I'm thinking how to go about creating a form where the user will only ever be working on one record at a time. Wouldn't it make sense for the DAL to return a ProductsRow instead of a ProductsTable?

DataSource Controls :: Queries Not Returning Proper Data?

Mar 17, 2010

I am having trouble with queries because they are not returning the data needed, and I am having trouble figuring out why because I only am testing with 2 records.First I want a query to return all records for one customer as follows:


There are two records with the customerID of 1, but it only returns one,next I try to return only one record, the AccountPrimary or customer_contacts.IsPrimary, but when I add " AND customer_contacts.IsPrimary = 'True' "at the end of my query it then returns both records, but only one IsPrimary = True and the Other = False. Is it backwards? I also tried another method and it returned 30 of the same record and I only have 2

C# - Difference Between These LINQ Queries?

Mar 18, 2010

I use LINQ-SQL as my DAL, I then have a project called DB which acts as my BLL. Various applications then access the BLL to read / write data from the SQL Database.

I have these methods in my BLL for one particular table:

public IEnumerable<SystemSalesTaxList> Get_SystemSalesTaxList()
return from s in db.SystemSalesTaxLists
select s;
public SystemSalesTaxList Get_SystemSalesTaxList(string strSalesTaxID)
return Get_SystemSalesTaxList().Where(s => s.SalesTaxID == strSalesTaxID).FirstOrDefault();

ADO.NET :: How To Build Dynamic Linq To SQL Queries

Nov 7, 2010

I'm trying to do something that on the face of it is very simple.

If I have 5 text boxes, and 1 of them is blank, I want to exclude that textbox from the query, rather than searching for where a field is blank.

I've tried to do a bit of research into dynamic linq queries, but have come up empty handed, or what I've found doesn't seem to quite answer my question.

ADO.NET :: Structure The BLL Using LINQ To Entities?

Nov 10, 2010

I am trying to learn LINQ to entities, and am working out how to best structure my BLL layer. I have generated the entity model and have created a generic repository in my DAL that returns results as IList<T>. I initially created the BLL to also return

results as IList<T>:

public IList<DAL.Customer> SelectAll()
{ [code]...

Now I am working on the aspx page, and I can create an ObjectDataSource and configure it to use my BLL, but since I am returning IList, I can't sort since I am not using a DataView. I have seen some articles on the web for converting IList to DataView, but that seems like a lot of overhead for every query.My goal is to keep a clean separation between layers without making things overly complicated. I would like to know how others have done this, or maybe a link to a good tutorial that shows how to structure all three layers.

C# - Efficient And Proper Linq Queries From Database

Nov 9, 2010

A sample linq query from MSDN: var expensiveInStockProducts = from p in products where p.UnitsInStock > 0 && p.UnitPrice > 3.00M select p; Does this query select EVERY column from the database table immediately, or does it return some sort of pointer that retieves the actual column data on demand? ie. If there are 50 columns in my table and I only use a single p.UnitsInStock in my actual code, then am I retrieving 50 times more data than I expected?

C# - Linq To Sql - Executing Multiple Queries On The Same Transaction?

Nov 2, 2010

I am creating entries in a contract table using linq to sql.

One column needs to conditionally be assigned an application number from a range of values.

I'd like to simply increment the max existing value, however it is a multi-user application and I'm concerned about multiple contracts receiving the same app number if they happen too close together.

Is there a way to either force the entire thing to use the same transaction, or to execute both during the same submit?

I would like to do something where the logic goes: for the index of [1] (which is just column 1), multiply it by 2. For the index of [2] (which is just column 2), multiply it by 3.
