Entity Framework 4.0 Dynamic Data - stored procedure

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I'm using Dynamic Data and have created a custom List.aspx page.  I simply want to populate the grid with a stored procedure.  I've seen some posts about doing this with a LinqDataSource but not an EntityDataSource.  Does someone have an example or a different way of doing this?  Thanks.

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.

Dynamic Data Entity Framework Filters



I'm working on EF DynamicData project (for .NET 3.5) and I didn't manage to find any code or examples for filters like in Dynamic Data Filtering (http://dynamicdatafiltering.codeplex.com/) or Dynamic Data Futures that support Entity Framework (the versions are for Linq2SQL only). 

The primary functionality that i want implement is having dynamic textboxes for searching datagrid based on the filterAttribute. Can You help me with an idea or some guideliness how to implement it or make modifications on something existing?

Entity Framework - stored procedure mapping, excecuting SP with float parameters separated by commas



Im using Entity framework with POCO entity generator template + SQL Server. I have mapping to stored procedure that takes two floats as input.

After executing function from code with two doubles as parameters: 1.23 and 4.56, SQL Profiler shows:

exec storedProcedureName @arg1 = 1,23, @arg2= 4,56

This is causing an error because it looks like that stored procedure takes 4 arguments, but it should take only two and there should be dots insted of commas in these floats.

My SQL Server collation is SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS. I tried to set:

           Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;
           Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = CultureInfo.InvariantCulture;

Dynamic Data using Code First Entity Framework Model


I have used Dynamic Data before using LinqToEntity where my Entity model used the Data First model and the GUI.  Now I am trying to use the Code First model witht he Entity CTP 4.  I have my model created and created a new Dynamic Data site.  I read that I need to replace the default RegisterContext call:

DefaultModel.RegisterContext(typeof(PriceLoaderContext), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });


DefaultModel.RegisterContext(new DomainModelProvider(typeof(PriceLoaderContext)), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true }); 

When I search further on DomainModelProvider, I find that it is part of the WCF RIA. Is this correct? Is this what I need for this to work? Has anyone else done this and got it to work?


Trying to use stored procedure in Entity Framework


I have a aspx page that only has a button and a button click event.

My code behind looks like this

using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using CommerceModel;

public partial class test : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        using (CommerceEntities context = new CommerceEntities())
                UBOtest myRecord = new UBOtest
                    dataA = "Tina",
                    dataB = "Feeney"
            catch (Exception ex)

This code works fine if I have no insert stored procedure mapped to Table UBOtest in the EntityDataModel.However, when I map the stored procedure to the EntityDataModel and add UBOtestinsert I get an error that reads "An error occured while updating the entries. See the inner exception for details.">/P>

Then the innerException message is "Invalid object name 'UBOtes

Dynamic data and Entity framework problem when using a function in RegisterContext


I am trying to use asp.net dynamic data using entity framewrok. my entity framework (edmx file) is in another dll and I dont want to put connection string in config files.
I use this code to register my objectContext in global.asax:

model.RegisterContext(() => new MyObjectContext("EntityConnectionString"), new ContextConfiguration() { ScaffoldAllTables = true });

the first page (the list of tables) is ok, but when i click any table, i get this error:

The specified named connection is either not found in the configuration, not intended to be used with the EntityClient provider, or not valid.

 it seems that for the second request, it checks the web.config to look for entity connection string.


Update to .NET 3.5 SP1 Released (Dynamic Data Entity Framework Issue Fixed)


An update to .NET 3.5 SP1 has been recently released, you can search for KB959209 in the Microsoft Knowledgebase. Here is a direct link to the article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/959209. This update is important for Dynamic Data users that are using the Entity Framework as it corrects the problem that the RTM version of Dynamic Data had with certain types of relationships with Entity Framework. This can been seen with 1->0..1 and *->1 relationships which may generate error messages like "'System.Web.UI.WebControls.EntityDataSourceWrapper' does not contain a property with the name 'Orders.OrderID'". Download and install this update to correct this issue.

Partial update with stored procedure in Entity Framework 4


How do I use a stored procedure to change one or more (but not all) fields of a entity in EF4? I have a stored procedure "ChangePassword" taking a username and and a password as parameters and a User entity containing properties for Username and Password as well as other properties. I want to be able to use this stored procedure from a function to update the password from a function in one of my repositories. How to do this?

Data accessors or Entity framework


The entlib 5 sugest me to use with data accessors for mapping data from database to my data objects (ORM).

But in .NET 3.5 and especially in .NET 4, I can use in entity framework as ORM methodology for data objects.

What data accessors uses advantages over the entity framework?

What differences that should be affect on my using decisions?
