How to Create Data Model using Database in MVC Application

As I have discussed in earlier article, MVC model folder have all the classes that may be used for application logic in the application. By default an MVC application have some of the models like AccountModels, LogOnModels, RegisterModels etc.

We will create a new model class by using some simple steps.

  • Right click on the Model folder and add a new class named Student.cs
  • Insert some properties in that class like written below.

namespace MvcApplication1.Models
    public class Student
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public int Age { get; set; }
        public string City { get; set; }
public class StudentContext: DbContext
public DbSet<Student> Students { get; set; }

This class have all the four properties which are the columns in the student table of the database. Now to work with this class we have to add a controller (after debugging this application) class in the Controllers folder with these simple steps.

  • Right click on the Controller folder and add a new Controller. A window will appear with some of the options to be inputted.
  • Name the controller StudentController and more options like shown in the window.

How to Create Data Model using Database in MVC Application

After clicking on Add button visual web developer will add StudentController.cs file under the Controller folder, and Student folder under the Views folder.

The last steps of this article is to add Database views which are used for UI purpose in the application. There is a plus point in this MVC application i.e. we don’t need to add required views because they are automatically added by the visual web developer.

Lookout under the Views>Student Folder

  • Index.cshtml
  • Create.cshtml
  • Delete.cshtml
  • Details.cshtml
  • Edit.cshtml

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
