About the Default Create Action Methods in MVC Controller

Earlier article was about the default index action of the controller, which in other words used to list the records from the database created in MVC application. Except this list (Index) action, all other actions are of two types i.e. Get and Post, having particular motive in the programming.

According to name, Get method is used to get a particular model and return to the view that will show that model. The below code will return the blank model of Student class (Controller). User will enter particular information in the textboxes shown on the form and click on submit button.

// GET: /Student/Create
public ActionResult Create()
{
return View();
}

After clicking on the submit button, compiler goes to the post method of the same action i.e. Post Create action, as written below:

[HttpPost]
[ValidateAntiForgeryToken]
public ActionResult Create(Student student)
{
if (ModelState.IsValid)
{
db.Students.Add(student);
db.SaveChanges();
return RedirectToAction("Index");
}
return View(student);
}

The first two line of this code are attributes used to tell the compiler about this method i.e. this is post method and validates fields on submit method. The parameter is of type student means the view is of Student type (having all the fields of Student class) as shown some lines of the create view:

@model MvcApplication1.Models.Student
@using (Html.BeginForm()) {
    @Html.AntiForgeryToken()
    @Html.ValidationSummary(true)
        <div class="editor-label">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.Name)
        </div>
        <div class="editor-field">
            @Html.EditorFor(model => model.Name)
            @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Name)
        </div>
……………….
……………….
……………….

This view is strongly typed view because of the first line and have all the fields of student class (only name is shown here, remaining are something like this).

So, turn back on our previous discussion that was about the post Create action. This action will then check the model is valid or not (Validation). If valid then it will add this new student in the student table and then save the changes to the database. If not it will return to the same page with the errors generated.

The last line will return to the same action i.e. Create with the model passed as parameter and of course validation errors, you can check this to not enter some fields in the form and submit the data. The next will be to edit the student.

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 …
