Update Edmx When Database Changes in MVC 4

MVC 4: Update Edmx is to make the model as same as the database through which it created. Whatever changes made with the database will not reflect in the Model to perform CURD functions. Suppose we have added a new table with SQL server management studio and want to insert/update some entries with that table using code part. After creating object of database context, notice that we don’t have an instance for that newly added table. To resolve this issue we have to update our edmx using Update Model Wizard as described in this article.

Create new table Category in the same database added earlier and use basic columns like id, name, description, isActive. Open our visual studio project and check that this table have not any existence yet. Open edmx file, right click on the blank space and click on Update Model from Database.

Update Model from Database

  An Update Model wizard will open with options to add tables, views and stored procedures. We have added only a table so expand “Tables” node and select “Categories”. Leave remaining options as they are and click finish.

expand “Tables” node and select “Categories

 After finishing it will reload and will add newly added table, check the edmx file and there are two tables Employee and Categories as shown in below image.

check the edmx file

This update model wizard does following in MVC 4:
  • If a table removed from database, it will remove from the model also and update mapping details.
  • If table has been added, it will insert new object in the existing model and update mapping details.
  • Any modification in the object, this wizard will update the model like to add/remove columns.

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 …
