Creating ADO.NET Entity at runtime

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 02, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I'm trying to implement my own Membership provider. I don't want to dig in very details but only high level logic. And first I don't understand is how can I use the class User generated from database in my CustomMembershipProvider project?I thought I shouldn't generate class User in my project which uses my custom provider because it just don't need any users. It's only for login/logout functionality which implements Membership provider, not project that uses it.Then I thought that I should pass Connection String to my Membership provider in order to make UserEntity somehow and use it inside Membership provider. I have two separate project for Membership provider and for any else project using Membership.So my question is... How could I create and use ADO.NET Entity in CustomMembershipProvider project for User table which located in database in other project?

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.

Creating controls at runtime

Hello all, I am creating a calendar tool where you can insert events on certain dates.  Right now I have a textbox where the date of the event is entered and a button that will create another textbox beneath that for a second date.  When I click the add button the second textbox is created just fine, but if I click on it anymore it won't do anything.

Is there a way of creating an Ado.Net Entity Data Model filtered on a Session variables (C#)


I'm trying to customize correct displaying of dropdownlists so information shown in comboboxes is relevant to the kind of user logged on (maintaining referential integrity at data level)

e.g.: I have a user already logged on and depending on his profile I'd like to display to this user only the portion of the database that he would be allowed to see. That would mean that he might have acces to an specific subset of data, e.g.: businesstype = "3", loging level = "2", etc.

Is there a way of creating an Ado.Net Entity Data Model filtered on a Session variables as to maintain proper referential integrity at data level? So it means that the filtering must apply to all entities contained in the .edmx model at once.

Creating a Calculated property to an Entity


Hi there:

I want to add a calculated property to an entity.

I learned that if I create a partial class that extends the entity would suffice.

For example, I'm using the Northwind database, and I'm trying to add a totalAmmount property to Order Details, that should be defined as

UnitPrice * Quantity (let's skip Discount for simplicity).

Then I created the following:

public partial class Order_Detail : EntityObject {

   public double TotalAmmount {

      get {

         return this._Quantity * (double)this._UnitPrice;




But it is not working, I added it to a DataGrid and it didn't show any data. Could somebody tell me what I'm I missing?

HELP: Creating an ActionResult method to display a particular database record using Entity Framework


Hi All,

I have an ActionResult method that displays records from a database table (below):

namespace STD.Controllers
    public class StudentController: Controller
        StudentEntities stud;
        public StudentController()
        stud= new StudentEntities ();


        public ActionResult Index()
            ViewData.Model = stud.StudentTable.ToList();
            return View();


I want to design a method "ActionResult Student()" that accepts "Student ID" as a parameter and displays record for that particular student only.

What do I need to do to make this happen? Could anyone please help me with this?

Thanks in advance


An Entity Relationship Diagram Example

An Entity Relationship Diagram conveys a lot of information with a very concise notation. The important part to keep in mind is to limit what you're reading using the following technique:

Choose two entities (e.g. Company and Employee)
Pick one that you're interested in (e.g. how a single Company relates to employees)
Read the notation on the second entity (e.g. the crow's feet with the O above it next to the Employee entity).

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Creating your SharePoint Governance Plan

One of the most common questions that I get from prospects as I'm talking to them about the creation of a governance plan and process is what does it look like. In other words, there are materials available which describe what should be in a governance plan but there isn't a ton of guidance on what the process of creating a governance plan and process are.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

ASP.NET 4.0 Dynamic Data and Many to Many Entity Framework Entities

I did not play much with Dynamic Data controls in VS2008 and just made a cool discovery in VS2010 Beta 2. This may not even be new, but as I'm sitting 30,000+ feet over the Atlantic ocean, I don't have access to VS2008 at the moment to check.

Creating SharePoint items with CreateItemActivity

Instead of creating new list items from code in your workflow you can use CreateItemActivity. CreateItemActivity can be used for creating list items or files. Properties of interest for this activity are the following (most of them are self-explanatory):

Creating an Excel Spreadsheet programmatically using VB.NET

The Interoperability services make it very easy to work with COM Capable Applications such as Word and Excel. This article reveals using Excel from a managed application. Excel is the spreadsheet component of Microsoft Office 2000. The majority of Excel programmatic functionality is exposed through Automation via the type library Excel9.olb. The intention of this article is to express that a managed application can interrelate with Excel as a COM server.
