Simple Insert,Update,View and Delete with LINQ-To-SQL

Today one of my friend asked me about simple insert,update and delete example with LINQ-To-SQL but at that time i was not having any simple example which will show the power of LINQ-To-SQL Example. So i have decided to create one simple example with LINQ-To-SQL and also decide to blog about it. Let's create a simple example which is very simple and also show basic step to use LINQ-To-SQL. First i have created a simple table called which have 4 fields like ProductId,Name,Description and Price. Like following.

Table-for-which-LINQ-To-SQL-Classes-Generated

Here is the description for each fields
  1. ProductId- A id which uniquely identify each product.
  2. Name- Name of Product
  3. Description- A short description about product
  4. Price- Price of Product.
Now, Lets create a Linq-To-SQL and rename it as MyDataContent.dbml as following. For that Go to your project ->Right Click->Add New Item->Go to Data Template-> LINQ to SQL Classes like following.

How-to-add-LINQ-To-SQL-Classes-to-your-application

Then open Database Explorer and drag and drop Product table on the newly generated LINQ-to-SQL Class like following.

How-Drag-and-Drop-Database-Tables-to-Linq-To-SQL-Classes

Now our LINQ-SQL-Class is Ready. Now we will insert some data to our table and then first we will write code to get all product information from the database. I have created a function called GetProduct which will print all the product information on page with the help of Response.Write . Following is code for that.
public void GetProducts()
{
using (MyDataContentDataContext context = new MyDataContentDataContext())
{
var Products = from product in context.Products
orderby product.Name
select product;
foreach(Product p in Products)
{
Response.Write(string.Format("<B>Id</B>:{0}", p.ProductId.ToString()));
Response.Write(string.Format("<B>Name</B>:{0}", p.Name));
Response.Write(string.Format("<B>Description</B>:{0}", p.Description));
Response.Write(string.Format("<B>Price</B>:{0}", p.Price.ToString()));
Response.Write("===========================================");
}
}
}
Now Let's Create a function to Add Product. Following is code for function to add product.
public void AddProduct(Product product)
{
using (MyDataContentDataContext context = new MyDataContentDataContext())
{
context.Products.InsertOnSubmit(product);
context.SubmitChanges();
}
}
In the above function i am passing a new object of product and passing that object to above function following is a code for that which create a new product via calling above function.
//Add New Product
Product product = new Product();
product.Name = "Product3";
product.Description="This is product 3 Description";
product.Price=10;
AddProduct(product);
Now we have added the code to add product now lets create a function to update the current product information. Following is a code for that.
public void UpdateProduct(int productId, string name, string description, double price)
{
using (MyDataContentDataContext context = new MyDataContentDataContext())
{
Product currentProduct = context.Products.FirstOrDefault(p => p.ProductId == productId);
currentProduct.Name = name;
currentProduct.Description = description;
currentProduct.Price = price;
context.SubmitChanges();
}
}
With the help of above function you can update current product like following.
////Update Product
UpdateProduct(2,"New Product2","New Description for product",20);
Now we added the code for update product so now let's create a sample code to delete a specific product. Following is a code for that.
public void DeleteProduct(int productId)
{
using (MyDataContentDataContext context = new MyDataContentDataContext())
{
Product currentProduct = context.Products.FirstOrDefault(p => p.ProductId == productId);
context.Products.DeleteOnSubmit(currentProduct);
context.SubmitChanges();
}
}
You can delete the product via passing product id as following.
//Delete product
DeleteProduct(3);
So that's it. you can create insert,update,delete operation with the help of LINQ-To-SQL within some minutes without writing so much code for .net and queries for databases.

Happy Programming...

How to create Rest API(Web API) with ASP.NET Core 1.0

Recently Microsoft has released ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2, I am getting lots of request from readers that about creating Web API. So I thought it will be a good idea to write a blog post about how to create Rest API(Web API) with ASP.NET Core 1.0.

So let’s get started via creating an ASP.NET Core 1.0 Web Application like following.



Once you click on ASP.NET Web Application, It will ask whether you need to create Web Application or Web API application. We are going to Web API so I am going to select Web API Application like following. Please note that in ASP.NET Core 1.0 there is no separate libraries or DLLs required for creating web APIs. This is just a project template.



Now once you click on OK It will create a Web API application with default values controller and program.cs.  As you know Program.cs is now starting point for the ASP.NET Core 1.0 application so It contains all the required configuration and startup items. Following is a code for that.
using System.IO; using Microsoft.Asp…

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. So there was a couple of request coming for writing a blog post about Entity Framework Core RC2 migration. So I thought it will be a good idea to give an overview how database migration works in Entity Framework Core RC2. 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.
