16 June 2016 07:38

Entity Framework

A key reason behind the decision to use an ORM such as Entity Framework for your data access is to reduce or eliminate the need to write SQL as part of the development process. Nevertheless, there are times when you might need to make use of database stored procedures, and Entity Framework 6 Code First provides support for using existing stored procedures as well as generating new ones.

13 May 2016 08:13

SQL ADO.NET ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

The search facility on this site has been rudimentary at best. I have recently upgraded it to take advantage of the Full-Text Search feature in SQL Server. Although it is still a basic implementation, it is a vast improvement on the search system that existed before, which was based on Entity Framework dynamically generating SQL LIKE clauses. This article describes how I got SQL Server Full-Text Search up and running.

Entity Framework Recipe: Storing And Managing Time

23 April 2015 13:19

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.

18 February 2015 13:16

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.

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

13 June 2014 13:39

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.

You'll see two ways to customize the data model:  by adding attributes to entity classes and by adding code to the database context class.
