Join Richard Goforth for an in-depth discussion in this video Generated properties and default values, part of Accessing Existing Databases with Entity Framework Core.
- [Narrator] Value generation is an integral part…of many databases.…For non-nullable fields,…a default value can prevent the need…to require a value when a new row is added.…Let's illustrate value generation with Entity Framework…by adding a new order to the database.…We'll go straight to our main method in the program.…We can remove our salesperson list from earlier.…We'll start by getting a customer, salesperson,…and product for this order.…We're not going to be particular in this case,…so we're just going to get the first one from the database.…Now we'll create the new order in code.…
We'll set the customer, the salesperson, what they ordered.…They've ordered a single item: the product from earlier.…And we'll indicate that the order date is right now.…Now that we have the order,…we can add it to the orders collection.…We've made the change to our Entity Framework model,…but we haven't saved that change to the database…until we call context.SaveChanges.…Now that we've saved the changes to the database,…the generated values from the database…
