How to retrieve data from two tables in MVC

Introduction

In this article, i want to bind  hyperlink from one database table like department and when we click on any department name then we will get all employee name, which is stored in second database table. In my previous example, we have to learn how to retrieve data from single database table also learn how-to bind hyperlink in mvc. Today, we will take help of both articles and learn how to retrieve data from two tables in mvc. First to prepare department class with some data members also mapped this with department table, this is already mentioned in previous post. Also add employee class in it.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations.Schema;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;

namespace WebApplication11.Models
{
[Table("Department")]
public class Department
{
public int Id { get; set; }
public string Name { get; set; }

public List<Employee> Employee { get; set; }
}
}

Create DepartmentContext class for retrieving department data from the database  table. If you are use same context for multiple table, MVC 5  generate error.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Data.Entity;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;

namespace WebApplication11.Models
{
public class DepartmentContext : DbContext
{
public DepartmentContext()
: base("EmployeeConnection")
{ }
public DbSet<Department> Departs { get; set; }
}
}

Here, connection string save in web.config file. Through Departs property i will get all records from the database table. Now, we create a controller class and view for controller class. In which, i will get all the records from department table using List collection and these items render on the browser using View.


public class DepartmentController : Controller
{
//
// GET: /Department/
public ActionResult Index()
{
DepartmentContext context = new DepartmentContext();
List<Department> dept = context.Departs.ToList();
return View(dept);
}
}

Get the list of department using context instance. Render by the view, so check the view, which is prepare for Department


@model IEnumerable<WebApplication11.Models.Department>
@using WebApplication11.Models;
@{
ViewBag.Title = "Index";
}

<h2>Index</h2>
<ul>
@foreach(Department dt in @Model)
{
<li>@Html.ActionLink(dt.Name,"Index1","Employee",new{DepartmentId=dt.Id},null)</li>
}
</ul>

The Action link method contains some parameters, which are name of the department,  calling method, name of the controller where your method exist and last one is parameter which is pass in the method.  Now, prepare the employee class and EmployeeContext in model folder.


namespace WebApplication11.Models
{
[Table("Employee")]
public class Employee
{
public int EmployeeId { get; set; }
public string Name { get; set; }
public int Age { get; set; }
public int DeptId { get; set; }
}
}

How to retrieve data from two tables in MVC


Similarly again, Create a Context for employee class, In which we can retrieve the data from employee table.

namespace WebApplication11.Models
{
public class EmployeeContext:DbContext
{
public EmployeeContext()
: base("EmployeeConnection")
{

}
public DbSet<Employee> Employees { get; set; }

}
}

Now, create a controller and view for employee class. In which we can create a single method that is Index1 and retrieve the employee information whos department id is selected.


public class EmployeeController : Controller
{
//
// GET: /Employee/
public ActionResult Index1()
{
EmployeeContext context = new EmployeeContext();
Employee emp = context.Employees.Single(emp1 => emp1.DeptId == 1);
return View(emp);
}
}

And create the view for employee.

@model WebApplication11.Models.Employee

@{
ViewBag.Title = "Index1";
}

<h2>Index1</h2>
<p>@Model.Name</p>

Code generate the following output

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 …
