TreeMap For AngularJS Using ASP.NET MVC 5

Introduction

In this post, I will show you how to create TreeMap, using Web API2, AngularJS, and Entity Framework.

Prerequisites

As I said earlier, we are going to use the TreeMap plugin in our MVC application with AngularJS. For this, you must have Visual Studio 2015 (.NET Framework 4.5.2) and SQL Server.

SQL Database part

Here, you can find the scripts to create the database and table.

Create Database

  1. USE [master]

  27. GO  
After creating the table, you can add some records, as shown below.

table

Create your MVC application

Open Visual Studio and select File >> New Project. The "New Project" window will pop up. Select ASP.NET Web Application (.NET Framework), name your project, and click OK.

MVC application

Now, a new window pops up for selecting the template. Choose Web API and click OK.

Web API

Now, we are going to add ADO.NET Entity Data Model.

Adding ADO.NET Entity Data Model

For adding ADO.NET Entity Data Model, right click on the project name and click Add > Add New Item. A new dialog box will pop up. Inside Visual C#, select Data >> ADO.NET Entity Data Model.
 
Now, enter the name for your Dbcontext model as DbContextPopulation and finally, click Add.

Adding ADO.NET Entity Data Model

At this level, choose "EF Designer from database", as show below.

EF Designer

In the following window, we need to choose the data connection which should be used to connect to the database. If the connection doesn’t exist, click on the "New Connection" button for creating a new one.

connection

After clicking on Next button, the Entity Data Model Wizard will pop up for choosing the object which we want to use. In this example, we are going to choose tbt_populations table and click Finish. Finally, we see that EDMX model generates tbt_Populations class.

class

Create a Controller

Now, we are going to create a Controller. Right click on the "Controllers" folder > Add > Controller> selecting Web API 2 Controller – Empty > click Add.

controller

Enter Controller name (‘PopulationController’).

Controller name

PopulationController.cs
  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections;  
  3. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  4. using System.Linq;  
  5. using System.Net;  
  6. using System.Net.Http;  
  7. using System.Web.Http;  
  8. using TreeMap_For_AngularJS.Models;  
  9.   
  10. namespace TreeMap_For_AngularJS.Controllers  
  11. {  
  12.     public class PopulationController : ApiController  
  13.     {  
  14.   
  15.         //DbContext  
  16.         private PopulationsDBEntities context = new PopulationsDBEntities();  
  17.   
  18.         [HttpGet]  
  19.         public IEnumerable<PopulationModel> GetPopulation()  
  20.         {  
  21.             var PopulationList = context.tbt_populations.Select(p => new PopulationModel { label = p.COUNTRY, value = p.POPULATION });  
  22.   
  23.             return PopulationList.ToList();  
  24.   
  25.         }  
  26.           
  27.   
  28.     }  
  29. }  
Here, I’m creating GetPopulation() action which will select all data from tbt_Poplulations table and return the result as list of PopulationModel.

Here, you find the definition of PopulationModel class.

PopulationModel.cs
  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  3. using System.Linq;  
  4. using System.Web;  
  5.   
  6. namespace TreeMap_For_AngularJS.Models  
  7. {  
  8.     public class PopulationModel  
  9.     {  
  10.   
  11.         public string label { get; set; }  
  12.         public long value { get; set; }  
  13.     }  
  14. }  
HomeController.cs
  1. using System;  
  2. using System.Collections.Generic;  
  3. using System.Linq;  
  4. using System.Net.Http;  
  5. using System.Web;  
  6. using System.Web.Mvc;  
  7. using TreeMap_For_AngularJS.Models;  
  8.   
  9. namespace TreeMap_For_AngularJS.Controllers  
  10. {  
  11.     public class HomeController : Controller  
  12.     {  
  13.         public ActionResult Index()  
  14.         {  
  15.             return View();  
  16.         }  
  17.   
  18.         IEnumerable<PopulationModel> PopulationList = Enumerable.Empty<PopulationModel>();  
  19.   
  20.         [HttpGet]  
  21.         public JsonResult GetPopulationList()  
  22.         {  
  23.             HttpClient client = new HttpClient();  
  24.             client.BaseAddress = new Uri("http://localhost:56720/");  
  25.             client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add(new System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));  
  26.   
  27.             HttpResponseMessage response = client.GetAsync("api/Population").Result;  
  28.   
  29.             if (response.IsSuccessStatusCode)  
  30.             {  
  31.                  PopulationList = response.Content.ReadAsAsync<IEnumerable<PopulationModel>>().Result;  
  32.             }  
  33.   
  34.             return Json(PopulationList, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);  
  35.               
  36.              
  37.         }  
  38.     }  
  39. }  
As you can see, I’m creating GetPopulationList() action which calls our API.

For calling our API, you need to,
  • Create an object from HttpClient class.
  • Specify URI of our API (in this example the URI used is: http://localhost:56720/).
  • Select the header of request. I’m choosing application/json, but you can choose another format, like xml, csv …
  • Finally, for calling the API, we need to use GetAsyc("api/Population") as mentioned above.

Adding View

In Home Controller, just right click on Index() action and select Add View. A new dialog will pop up. Write a name for your View and finally, click Add.
