In previous chapter you learned how to create and connect to a database in razor syntax. In this chapter I will show you how you can Insert, update and delete data.

Programming Example

@{   
    var sqldb=Database.Open("Database Tutorial");    
}
 
<!DOCTYPE html>
 
<html lang="en">
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <title></title>
    </head>
    <body>
       @{
           //Insert a Row           
           var sqlinsert = "INSERT INTO Library (BookName,Author) Values(@0,@1)";           
           sqldb.Execute(sqlinsert,"SQL","Clark");
 
           //Update a Row
           var sqlupdate = "UPDATE Library SET [email protected] where [email protected]";
           sqldb.Execute(sqlupdate,"MySQL","Clark"); 
           
           //Delete a Row
           var sqldelete = "DELETE FROM Library where [email protected]";
           sqldb.Execute(sqldelete,"15");
 
           //Search a Row
           var sqlsearch = "SELECT * FROM Library where ID=4";
           foreach(var sd in sqldb.Query(sqlsearch))
           {   
               <h2>ID : @sd.ID, Book Name : @sd.BookName, Author : @sd.Author</h2>   
           }
 
           //Show Data
           var sqlquery="SELECT * FROM Library";
           foreach(var row in sqldb.Query(sqlquery))
           {
               <span>ID : @row.ID</span><br />
               <span>Book Name : @row.BookName</span><br />
               <span>Author : @row.Author</span>
               <br /><hr /><br />
           }
       }
    </body>

Explanation

Insert a Row

var sqlinsert = "INSERT INTO Library (BookName,Author) Values(@0,@1)";           
sqldb.Execute(sqlinsert,"SQL","Clark");

You cannot directly insert a value in INSERT query. You need to use place holder(@) starting with 0. That’s why I used Values(@0,@1) for value and passed real string value in sqldb.Execute(sqlinsert,"SQL","Clark") command.

Update a Row

var sqlupdate = "UPDATE Library SET [email protected] where [email protected]";
sqldb.Execute(sqlupdate,"MySQL","Clark");

You cannot insert direct value in update command. You need to use place holder (@) instead of value. You can pass respective value in sqldb.Execute(sqlupdate,"MySQL","Clark"); command.

Delete a Row

var sqldelete = "DELETE FROM Library where [email protected]";
sqldb.Execute(sqldelete,"15");

You cannot pass value directly to delete command. You need to use place holder (@) in delete command. Next in sqldb.Execute(sqldelete,"15") command you have to pass value.

Summary

In this chapter you learned how to Insert, update and delete data from database in Razor Syntax. However, it is very basic operation but you can study in details in demo project. In the next chapter you will learn WebGrid to Display data with ease.
