Thursday, April 23, 2015 1:19 PM

ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This post explores the options available to you when your application requirements include managing and storing time using the Entity Framework. Specifically, I am thinking of durations of time, such as the time required to complete some kind of task, not the time part of a date. Relevant examples might include storing the length of a movie, or the preparation time required for a recipe.

Wednesday, February 18, 2015 1:16 PM

ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework ASP.NET Web Pages

If you have built sites with the ASP.NET Razor Web Pages framework, you might want to look at migrating them to ASP.NET MVC at some point. This tutorial is the second in a series of three that explores how you do that by taking a step by step approach to migrating the WebMatrix Bakery template site to ASP.NET MVC 5. Along the way, each of the core parts of MVC are discussed by way of an introduction to the framework. The tutorial is divided into three parts. The first part looked at the roles of the View and Controller. This part looks at the M in MVC, the Model. Specifically, it features data access and view models. The final part will cover model binding and form posting. A download (c. 24MB) featuring the completed application is available.

This article looks at using the alphabet for paging data in MVC 5 with Entity Framework 6. Where it differs from most existing articles on alphabetical paging is that this article looks at generating paging links from the data instead of the alphabet. It also features a Bootstrap-friendly helper for generating the paging links.

MVC 5 with EF 6 in Visual Basic - Updating Related Data

Friday, June 13, 2014 1:39 PM

VB.Net ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This tutorial is the eighth in a series of 12 that teach you how to build MVC 5 applications using Entity Framework for data access and Visual Basic. In the previous tutorial you displayed related data; in this tutorial you'll update related data. For most relationships, this can be done by updating either foreign key fields or navigation properties. For many-to-many relationships, the Entity Framework doesn't expose the join table directly, so you add and remove entities to and from the appropriate navigation properties.
