Structure with Interface in C#

Recently I have been playing with Structure and it is fun. I have written couple of blog post about structure. Following are links for that.

Structure in C#
Structure with constructor in C#

In this blog post we are going to learn how we can use structure with interface. So like earlier example I’ve created a console application. Now it’s time to write interface which we can implement with structure. Following is a code for that.
using System;

namespace StructureWithMethodAndInterface
{
    interface IPrintable
    {
        void Print();
    }
}
Here you can see that I have simple interface IPrintable which has simple print method. Now let’s create a structure which implement this interface. Following is a code for that.

using System;

namespace StructureWithMethodAndInterface
{
    public struct Employee : IPrintable
    {
        public int EmployeeId { get; set; }

        public string FirstName { get; set; }

        public string LastName { get; set; }

        public void Print()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Printing Employee");
            Console.WriteLine(EmployeeId);
            Console.WriteLine(FirstName);
            Console.WriteLine(LastName);
        }
    }
}
Here you can see I have created a structure called Employee with few properties and then I have written a Print method as I’m implementing IPrintable interface in Employee structure. In Print method I’m printing properties of Employee structure.  Now let’s test it via following code in our console application.
namespace StructureWithMethodAndInterface
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            IPrintable employee = new Employee
            {
                EmployeeId=1,
                FirstName="Jalpesh",
                LastName="Vadgama"
            };

            employee.Print();
        }
    }
}
Here I have created a object of Employee structure and then I’ have called print method. Now when you run this example. Following is a output as expected.

That’s it. Hope you like it. Stay tuned for more.

This is just a project template.

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.

In this post we are going to learn how we can easily create PDF from ASP.Net application with the help of Razor PDF NuGet package.

About Razor PDF:
This NuGet package is created by Al Nyveldt It internally uses ITextSharp an open source PDF convertor library. RazorPDF uses Razor View engine to create iTextXML which is in tern used to produce PDF file. You can get more information about that at below link.

Example(Creating PDF with ASP.Net MVC):
So what we are we waiting for ? Let’s create a simple example. To create example first thing we need to a create and ASP.Net MVC application.
