Convert data from Generic List to DataTable.

Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on May 9, 2013


Today i am sharing very good a function which convert all Generic list’s data to Datatable is as below

public DataTable LINQToDataTable<T>(IEnumerable<T> varlist)
{
  DataTable dtReturn = new DataTable();

  // column names
  PropertyInfo[] oProps = null;

  if (varlist == null) return dtReturn;

  foreach (T rec in varlist)
  {
    // Use reflection to get property names, to create table, Only first time, others will follow
    if (oProps == null)
    {
      oProps = ((Type)rec.GetType()).GetProperties();
      foreach (PropertyInfo pi in oProps)
      {
        Type colType = pi.PropertyType;

        if ((colType.IsGenericType) && (colType.GetGenericTypeDefinition() == typeof(Nullable<>)))
        {
          colType = colType.GetGenericArguments()[0];
        }

        dtReturn.Columns.Add(new DataColumn(pi.Name, colType));
      }
    }
    DataRow dr = dtReturn.NewRow();

    foreach (PropertyInfo pi in oProps)
    {
      dr[pi.Name] = pi.GetValue(rec, null) == null ? DBNull.Value : pi.GetValue(rec, null);
    }

    dtReturn.Rows.Add(dr);
  }
  return dtReturn;
}

Hope this will helps you.
Thanks.

String.Split – by Multiple Character Delimiter in C#.Net

Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on October 31, 2012


 

Basically String Split function split the string with the single character delimiter;
we take one example of single string of the multiple emails.
If we have comma separated emails then we can use Split function as like below

string strEmailText = "abc.abc@yahoo.com,xyz.xyz@gmail.com,some.text@yahoo.co.in";
string[] strSplitText = strEmailText.Split(",");

this will give us string array of the Emails.

But what if we want to use split with 2 or more than one character?
Means what if i have string as like below

string strEmailText = "abc.abc@yahoo.com,xyz.xyz@gmail.com;some.text@yahoo.co.in,pqr.xyz@msn.com";

at this time above split function will not work with this string. so for that below solution works well.

string strEmailText = "abc.abc@yahoo.com,xyz.xyz@gmail.com;some.text@yahoo.co.in,pqr.xyz@msn.com";
string[] strSplitText = strEmailText.Split(new char[] { ',', ';' }, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);

this will give you string array of the Emails.

Thanks.

Difference Between LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework

Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on August 14, 2012


In my current company we have discussion about what is the difference between LINQ to SQL Vs Entity Framework and I get following conclusion from the surfing from internet (off course from google. 🙂 )

LINQ to SQL supports one to one mapping of database table or views or procedures or functions
Entity Framework map single class to multiple tables of database. Means you can map one table to multiple entities or multiple table to one entities.

LINQ to SQL does not support the creation of complex types
Entity Framework support the creation of complex types.

LINQ to SQL is easy to use
Entity framework is more complex compared to LINQ to SQL.

While introduction of LINQ to SQL it supports only sql server and letter on “DBLINQ” that can use with mysql, sqllite or other DBs
Entity Framework  plug with any database server like DB2, Sybase, Oracle, SQL Azure and other.

In LINQ to SQL, inheritance is difficult.
Entity Framework is simple to apply because it supports Table per class and table per Type.

LINQ to SQL file type is DBML
Entity Framework File type is EDMX.

LINQ to SQL has DataContext object which we can query the database,
Entity Framework, we can query database using LINQ To Entities through the ObjectContext object and ESQL(provides SQL like query language). In addition, Entity Framework has ObjectQuery class(used with Object Services for dynamically constructing queries at runtime) and EntityClient provider(runs query against conceptual model).

LINQ to SQL is slow for the first time run, after first run acceptable performance.
Entity Framework is also slow for the first but  performance is good then LINQ to SQL after first run.

LINQ to SQL has not capability to generate database from Model
Entity Framework has capability to generate database from Model.

Thanks.

Random in Linq

Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on July 12, 2012


In sql query if we want to get one random row form the whole set of data we get from NEWID() in select statement’s order by clouse as like below.

Select top 1 * from Customers where IsActive = 1 order by newid()

What if we are using ORM like linq?

We can do this at the database, by using a fake UDF; in a partial class, add a method to the data context

partial class MyDataContext {
    [Function(Name="NEWID", IsComposable=true)]
    public Guid Random()
    { // to prove not used by our C# code...
        throw new NotImplementedException();
    }
 }

Then just order by ctx.Random(); this will do a random ordering at the SQL-Server courtesy of NEWID(). i.e.

var cust = (from row in ctx.Customers
   .where row.IsActive // your filter
   .orderby ctx.Random()
   select row).FirstOrDefault();

Note that this is only suitable for small-to-mid-size tables; for huge tables, it will have a performance impact at the server, and it will be more efficient to find the number of rows (Count), then pick one at random (Skip/First).

var qry = from row in ctx.Customers select row;

int count = qry.Count(); // 1st round-trip
int index = new Random().Next(count);

Customer cust = qry.Skip(index).FirstOrDefault(); // 2nd round-trip

We can also do woth Guid class

var cust = ctx.Customers
 .Where(x => x.IsActive)
 .OrderBy(x => Guid.NewGuid())
 .FirstOrDefault();

Hope this will helps you.

Thank you.

LINQ: Compare two Sequences

Posted by Viral Sarvaiya on April 4, 2012


Today i get very good and very simple way to compare two arrays.

.Net provide very simple way to compare sequences with Enumerable.SequenceEqual()

Function SequenceEqual() compare target and source sequence and return Boolean value, so we  can know that sequence is similar or not.

for ex.

var ar1 = new[] {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 };
var ar2 = new[] {1, 3, 4, 6 };

var result = ar1.SequenceEqual(ar2);

Console.WriteLine(Result.ToString());

Result : False

Now we want to get that element that is different, for that LINQ gives us best function Except() which works as like below.

if(!result)
{
var differ = ar1.Except(ar2);
Array.ForEach(differ.ToArray(), a => Console.WriteLine(a));
}

Out Put:
2
5
7

Hope this will helps you,
Thanks.
