We just need to create a new object of corresponding database table type, then add it to the Data Context object and then commit the changes. If you want to insert more than one row, then you will have to create a ‘List’ array object containing all the ‘User’ objects and then use ‘Insert All On Submit‘ method, it will work fine.Here is a small block of c# code samples to create new ‘User’ linq to sql class(Representing ‘Users’ Table in Database) and add it to ‘Users Data Context’ class(Represents the database) and commit the changes to original database by ‘Submit Changes'(without this, no changes will be reflected to database): For your information, the above code example is for . If you are using an earlier version, you will have to use ‘Add‘ method instead of ‘Insert On Submit‘ . Deleting data/row from database using linq is as simple as inserting data and this is also sql syntax free operation 🙂 .
Stored procedures can be added to the O/R Designer and executed as typical Data Context methods.
Please use the database structure given below, if you want to try the following examples directly.
I am assuming, you already know how to create dbml/linq to sql classes: Being Lin Q as a ORM, it’s quite easy and sql syntax free way to insert data using Lin Q.
They can also be used to override the default LINQ to SQL runtime behavior that performs Inserts, Updates, and Deletes when changes are saved from entity classes to a database (for example, when calling the Submit Changes method).
If your stored procedure returns values that need to be sent back to the client (for example, values calculated in the stored procedure), create output parameters in your stored procedures.
