Join Richard Goforth for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding the generated context, part of Accessing Existing Databases with Entity Framework Core.
- [Narrator] Now that we have a model and a database context…we can look at their details…so that we can begin to make improvements.…We'll start by looking in the models folder…at customer CS.…The first thing to notice is that the…scaffolding process generated partial classes.…The partial class allows us to separate…our changes from the generated code.…The next thing we see is properties…for each field in the table.…The final thing in a model class is this collection.…This collection represents the orders…that are related to this customer.…
In the constructor we see that that set…has been instantiated to an empty set of orders.…This way a the property is not null…even if it has not been populated from the database.…Now let's move on to the context.…Note that the context is also a partial class…and can also be extended in another file.…The two main methods that we'll be looking at in the context…are on configuring and on model creating.…These are hooks in Entity Framework's process.…Both of these methods take in a builder.…
