C# 4.0 New feature - Named Parameter

C# 4.0 has one new cool features which is the named parameter. Suppose you have so many parameter in function and when you call them its hard to remember the sequence of the code now with the named parameter you can have name of the parameter with value like Parameter:value and one another cool feature of the name parameter is the you don't need to pass the parameter in exact sequence. Let see the following example



Code Snippet



  1. protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
  2. {
  3. foreach (int i in Square( max:10,min:1))
  4. {
  5. Response.Write(i.ToString() + " ");
  6. }
  7. }

  8. public static IEnumerable<int> Square(int min, int max)
  9. {
  10. for (int i = min; i < max; i++)
  11. {
  12. yield return i*i;
  13. }
  14. }





In above example I am having a function called square with two parameter min and max and having a function which will return the square of the given range between min and max. See the for each loop carefully. I have named parameters and another thing you will notice that i have changed the sequence of parameter but still its working fine. So this is a very cool new feature from the C# 4.0.

Happy Programming...

How to use migration with Entity Framework Core

Entity framework core is  the lightweight, extensible and cross-platform version of Entity Framework. Before some time, Microsoft has Released a new version of Entity Framework RC2. I have written a couple of blog post about Entity framework code first migration earlier for Entity framework 6.0.

This post will cover a basic scenario where we are going to create the database with existing ASP.NET Identity migration and then we are going to create a new model and have that migration applied in the database.

How to use Entity Framework Migrations: Let’s get started, To demonstrate entity framework core migrations, I am going to create a sample asp.net core web application like following.



Once we select asp.net core application it will appear the following dialog.
