Default Listing with Insert and Update in MVC 4

MVC 4 provides simple listing procedure through which developer can create CRUD actions for a database table. Awesome thing is developer don’t need to write a single line of code and will complete the task.
We have added new table Category and updated edmx file in earlier article. Now we will create CRUD actions and their views with default MVC 4 structure. We have created empty controller without using any default action but now we will add a controller with all the default actions.
Follow the procedure for creating a controller and in “Add Controller” window name the controller as CategoryController and select the options as selected in the following screenshot and click on Add button:
CategoryController and select the options as selected

This window is prompting for your context class (inherited from DbContext or may be your edmx entities name) file and the model name for which these actions will be created.
After clicking on Add button, it will add a controller with following 5 actions and corresponding views. Those views are not created on the root, but MVC 4 will create those views under new folder with the same name as controller.
  • Create
  • Delete
  • Detail
  • Edit
  • Index
Run your project and go to specified controller/Index page, it will load all the categories your database have. Have a look on the below screenshot, with three records each having three action-link i.e. Edit, Details and Delete. Beside these individual action links this table structure also have Create New action on the top through which it will redirect to another view.

So we have saved lot of time that may waste to write the code for all these actions and also for creating their views. This MVC 4 feature is very simple to use and we can create more control for each table. Developer can customize these actions or their views as per their requirements.
Some developer don’t need all these views or maybe they want to enable all these actions on the single page. In next article we will create listing page for our own and write some line of code for table structure.

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 …
