Delete and Update Data in Reverse Engineering POCO Generator

Delete Data - Reverse Engineering POCO Generator

 

Introduction

 

This article demonstrates an interesting and very useful concept in Entity Framework.

Question: What is the reverse engineering POCO generator?

 

In simple terms "It is a template that enables generation of entity classes by reverse engineering with the POCO generator".

Step 1: Create a new web application

Step 2: Adding a new Entity Framework reverse engineering POCO generator :

Step 3: The complete code of WebForm1.aspx is as in the following:

Step 4: The complete code of WebForm1.aspx.cs is as in the following:

 

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Web;

using System.Web.UI;

using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

        }

        #region Instance MembersMyDbContext objEntities = new MyDbContext();

        #endregion

    }

}


Step 5:
 The complete code of web.config is as in the following:
