Create, Edit, Delete,Details Operation From Fancy Box in MVC5 Application

This article will solve the problem of how to create a MVC 5 application with CURD (Create, Edit, Details, Delete) operation using Fancy Box and Entity Framework.

First we create a model and context class. We create a student information class with the following properties.

[Key]

public Guid ID { getset; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = "*")]

[Display(Name = "First Name")]

public string FirstName { getset; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = "*")]

[Display(Name = "Last Name")]

public string LastName { getset; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = "*")]

[Display(Name = "Course")]

public string Course { getset; }

[Required(ErrorMessage = "*")]

[Display(Name = "Phone No")]

public string PhoneNo { getset; }

And second is the context class like this that inherits the DbContext class:

public class DbConnectionContext : DbContext
{
    public DbConnectionContext():base("name=dbContext")
    {  }
    public DbSet<StudentInformation> Students { getset; }
}

We also have a web config file. We configure connectionStrings under the Web.Config file.

<connectionStrings>
    <
add name="dbContext" connectionString="Data Source=localhost;
         Initial Catalog=CommonDataBase; Integrated Security=true" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />  
</connectionStrings>

Then we create a controller class in a controller folder and edit the name as StudentController. Add Scaffold select MVC 5 Controller with Views, using Entity Framework.

Add Controller

We edit the Index View according to requirements and add the following code:

add Reference
Then we add these references to the Index View:

@model IEnumerable<CURDOperationFromFancybox.Models.StudentInformation>
 @{

     ViewBag.Title = 
"Index";
 }

 <h2>Student</h2>
 <
p>
    
<a class="createEditStudent btn btn-primary" data-fancybox-type="iframe" href="@Url.Action("Create""Student")">Create New Student</a>
 </
p> <table class="table">
    
<tr>
        
<th>
             @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.FirstName)
        
</th>
        
<th>
             @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.LastName)
        
</th>
        
<th>
             @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.Course)
        
</th>
        
<th>
             @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.PhoneNo)
        
</th>
        
<th></th>
    
</tr>
 @
foreach (var item in Model) {
    
<tr>
        
<td>
             @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.FirstName)
        
</td>
        
<td>
             @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.LastName)
        
</td>
        
<td>
             @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Course)
        
</td>
        
<td>
             @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.PhoneNo)
        
</td>
        
<td>           
           <
a class="createEditStudent btn btn-primary" data-fancybox-type="iframe"                                                href="@Url.Action("Edit""Student"new {id=item.ID })">Edit</a>

              <a class="createEditStudent btn btn-primary" data-fancybox-type="iframe" 
             href="@Url.Action("Details""Student"new { id = item.ID })">Details</a>

            
<a class="createEditStudent btn btn-danger" data-fancybox-type="iframe"  
              href="@Url.Action("Delete""Student"new {id=item.ID })">Delete</a>
        
</td>
    
</tr>
 }

 </
table>

And Add jQuery code to Index View and .createEditStudent as in the following:
<script type="text/javascript">
    $(document).ready(
function () {
        $(
'.createEditStudent').fancybox({
            fitToView: 
false,
            width: 
'600px',
            height: 
'400px',
            autoSize: 
false,
            closeClick: 
false,
            openEffect: 
'none',
            closeEffect: 
'none',
            padding: 0,
            closeBtn: 
false,
           
'afterClose'function () {
                window.location.reload();
            },

        });
    });

</
script>
 We add a Create View in the Student folder, Create.cshtml. The purpose of this view is to create a new entry stored in the database.
@model CURDOperationFromFancybox.Models.StudentInformation
@{

ViewBag.Title =
"Create";
Layout =
null;
}

Create New Form
We need to submit a form from the Ajax.BeginForm and add the OnSuccess attribute. The purposes of these are for the Ajax.BeginForm close of the fancy box after submitting the form successfully.

We add an edit view in the Student folder, edit.cshtml. The purpose is to update the record in the stored record.

@model CURDOperationFromFancybox.Models.StudentInformation

     ViewBag.Title = 
"Edit";
