Deleting Multiple Records in Entity Framework | Entity Framework Tutorial

Sometimes you may need to delete multiple records. In such case, developers use to iterate through the collection using foreach and will set each entity state to modified. Some developers use to write an extension method as below to handle deleting multiple records in entity framework.

Extension Method:

public static void DeleteObjects(this ObjectSet set, Expression> predicate) where T : EntityObject { foreach (var entity in set.AsQueryable().Where(predicate)) set.DeleteObject(entity); }

Usage of Extension Method

db.Employees.DeleteObjects(x => x.Country == "India");

However to make the life of the .Net developer easier, entity framework 6 has introduced a method named RemoveRange to delete multiple records at one shot as given in the below code snippet:

db.People.RemoveRange(db.Employees.Where(x => Country == "India"));

How to Get Browser Agent from ASP.NET Web API Controller? | ASP.NET Web API Tutorial

Excluding Required Property from ModelState.IsValid | ASP.NET MVC Tutorial

You can exclude any property from validating using parameter binding. Set the exclude property in Bind attribute of a parameter as [Bind(Exclude = "Password")]

Process Flow of Single and Multitenancy ASP.NET MVC Application | ASP.NET MVC Tutorial

Single-Tenancy Application
The steps that lead from a user entering a website address in his browser to viewing the content are fairly straightforward. The browser sends a request for the content at that address to a server. The server receives the request, matches the address with an application, and passes the request on to that application for processing. The application reads the request, creates a response, and passes the response back to the server. The server returns the response to the browser and the browser presents the response content to the user. This is sometimes referred to as a single tenant application architecture. Each client application is matched with a single IP address and host name so that, as requests come in, the server can route them to the appropriate application (Figure 1).

Simplifying AccountController by Removing External Login Related Actions | ASP.NET MVC Tutorial
