How to Use Multiple Models in View using ViewModel: Asp.Net MVC

Asp.Net MVC uses such type of classes in which each field may contains specific validation rules using data annotations, to let the user interact with those only. These fields may contains some extra fields to be used as a temporary purpose.

Create two classes in the Models folder named Student and Employee as written below:

public class Student
public string Name { get; set; }
public int Age { get; set; }
public string City { get; set; }
public class Employee
public int EmpId { get; set; }
public string EmpName { get; set; }

Create a folder in our solution named ViewModels and add a class named Student_EmployeeViewModel which will have the following code.

public class Student_EmployeeViewModel
public List<Student> Students { get; set; }
public List<Employee> Employees { get; set; }

Come to our Controller (Home controller) and add an Action (Student_Employee) which will be type of HttpGet. This action will have some lines of code as below which contains two list of student and employee and then assign them to the newly created object of Student_EmployeeViewModel.

public ActionResult Student_Employee()
List<Student> studentList = new List<Student>();
studentList.Add(new Student() { Name = "Student 1", Age = 24 });
studentList.Add(new Student() { Name = "Student 2", Age = 25 });
studentList.Add(new Student() { Name = "Student 3", Age = 23 });

List<Employee> empList = new List<Employee>();
empList.Add(new Employee() { EmpName = "Employee 1", EmpId = 101 });
empList.Add(new Employee() { EmpName = "Employee 2", EmpId = 102 });
empList.Add(new Employee() { EmpName = "Employee 3", EmpId = 103 });

Student_EmployeeViewModel vm = new Student_EmployeeViewModel();
vm.Students = studentList;
vm.Employees = empList;
return View(vm);

Create an empty view by right clicking on this action and then Add View dialog box as discussed earlier. Write the following code in this view which will have two list as defined in our ViewModel.

@model MvcApplication1.Models.Student_EmployeeViewModel

    ViewBag.Title = "Student_Employee";
    Layout = "~/Views/Shared/_Layout.cshtml";

<h2>Students List</h2>

@foreach (var item in Model.Students)
    <option>@item.Name &nbsp;&nbsp; @item.Age</option>

<h2>Employees List</h2>

@foreach (var item in Model.Employees)
    <option>@item.EmpName &nbsp;&nbsp; @item.EmpId</option>

In the above code, we run two loops for each list of student and employee and display their name and age/id on the page.

Run this project and write the address of this action in the address bar, this will shows all the data of student as well as employees we have added in the action.

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 …
