Before updating scaffolding from new db
Entity Framework 6 has a number of features to make it fairly straightforward to work with existing databases.
In this article I’ll detail those steps that I needed to take on the EF side, in order to build a fully featured web application to work with the Adventure Works database.
I'm using MVC 5, EF 6 Database first and scaffolding I created an Entity Data Model then generated controller using scaffolding Then I needed to change some field on the database.
I deleted the model which I'd changed (since EF only check for new thing in database, It will not update anything if I don't delete the model) I deleted the generated files and generated it again, but it still used old data model to generate my controller.
I've created a bunch of views for my models and then I've changed them.
Is there another way other than re-naming some files or creating another solution and copying stuff?
Jon Smith looks at what tools there are in Microsoft's Entity Framework's Data Access technology that can deal with these requirements.
I was wondering if anyone knew how to update the files (adding/removing/updating an attribute) produced by using the scaffold generator in ruby on rails.
I’ll actually use the Adventure Works LT2012 database, which is a cut-down version of the larger Adventure Works OLTP database. NET MVC5 (MVC) with the propriety Kendo UI package for the UI/presentation layer, which I cover in the next article.
At the end, I also mention some other techniques that I didn’t need for Adventure Works, but I have needed on other databases.
For example: scaffold student name:string lastname:string so this will create a the associate files (controller,view,etc) with name and lastname as string attributes.
When you db:migrate the project, it'll create the table in the database.
