Creating a Model in Asp.Net MVC

Creating a Model means create a database table with required fields in form of simple class and its properties. This class must be added to the pre-added folder Models which differentiate this from all the simple classes in the MVC application.
In earlier article we have created a view for an existing action method Index which is by default added. At the same time we have passed some values from the same action to the respective view page. Those values have been passed through ViewBag, used to dynamically share values from controller to view.
Models folder contains all the classes used to represent application model for the application including validation logic and data access. Right click on the Models folder and add a new class Product and add some properties in that class as shown below:
public class Product
public int Id {get; set;}
public string Name {get; set;}
public string Description {get; set;}
public string Color {get; set;}
public string Type {get; set;}
public double Price {get; set;}
Using this model class we can either create a database through code- first approach or just use it with a List object to show the data on view page. We will use second option here, create a simple list object and pass items to view page.
Create a Controller ProductsController and choose Empty MVC Controller in Template selection. There is a default action method Index, delete and create a new action method List. You can even change its name from Index to List because there is not view page for this action method.
In this action method we will create a simple list of products with some items and then show those items in the list page. Write the below code in this list method:
public ActionResult List()
List<Product> productList = new List<Product>();
productList.Add(new Product() { Id = 1, Name = "Mouse", Color = "Black", Description = "", Price = 800, Type = "Electronics" });
productList.Add(new Product() { Id = 2, Name = "Scanner", Color = "White", Description = "", Price = 3000, Type = "Electronics" });
productList.Add(new Product() { Id = 3, Name = "Mobile", Color = "Dark Grey", Description = "", Price = 6000, Type = "Electronics" });
productList.Add(new Product() { Id = 4, Name = "Shirt", Color = "Blue", Description = "", Price = 850, Type = "Cloths" });
productList.Add(new Product() { Id = 5, Name = "Shampoo", Color = "Black", Description = "", Price = 125, Type = "Hair Product" });

return View(productList);
Create a View for this action method which will have the same name “List”. In this view file we have to write simple html that will show all the records added in the action method. Write the below code in this view page:
@model IEnumerable<CodeWallMVCApplication.Models.Product>
ViewBag.Title = "List";

<h2>Product List</h2>

@foreach (var item in Model)
The first line specifies about the model rendered on this view, remaining code is same as simple html code. Run this application the on the address bar write http://localhost:53420/Products/List and it will show the product list, added on the action method. In the address, port no may be change according to the application created so don’t copy it from here, just run your application.

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 …
