1 BIM313 – Advanced Programming Database Operations 1

2 Contents Database Structure – Database, Table, Fields, Primary Key, SQL Statements, Select, Insert, Update, Delete Database Operations with C# Data Objects – Designing database, Adding database into solution, Displaying a table, Displaying a single record Database Example 2

3 A Note about the Slides The slides were prepared originally for Visual Studio 2008 Almost everything is the same in Visual Studio 2012 Some improvements in Visual Studio 2012 are also included 3

4 Database A database is an integrated collection of logically related records. A database contains tables. The columns of a table is called fields. The rows of a table is called records. The records are accessed by SQL commands. 4

5 Database Applications A database application is designed using these steps: 1.Determine tables and fields 2.Design database 3.Write a program which reads and manipulates the database In this course, we’ll use Microsoft Access and integrated data tools in Visual Studio to design databases. 5

6 Exercise Today, we are going to write a simple database application which displays information about students and courses that students take. 6

7 1. Determining Tables We need three tables: – Students Contains information about the students, such as ID number, name, birthday, age, etc. – Courses Contains information about the courses, such as course code, course name, instructor, etc. – Enrolment Contains information about which student is enrolled to which course 7

8 Students Table Students table contains these fields: – ID – First name – Last name – Birthday – Age Notice that these fields are related to a student only (Remember the structs in C) 8

12 Enrolment Table Enrolment table contains information about the courses taken by each students. It has two fields: – Student ID – Course ID For example, if a record with Student ID = 1 and Course ID = 2, then it means that the student with ID = 1 (Bahar Çağlar) takes the course with ID = 2 (Visual Programming) 12

13 A Sample Enrolment Table Student IDCourse ID 12 13 21 22 24 32 35 41 43 52 55 13

14 Primary Key Primary key is the field which uniquely identifies each row in a table A primary key comprises a single column or a set of columns ID field in Students table and Course ID field in Courses table are primary keys Both Student ID and Course ID fields in Enrolment table must be primary keys Always create primary keys for tables. 14

15 2. Designing Database The database design steps are explained in detail in the next slides The basic steps are – Open Microsoft Access – Create a database file of format Office 2002-2003 with the extension *.mdb Office 2007-2010 format (*.accdb) is also used but it may have some difficulties. – Create tables in design view – Enter records – Close MS Access 15

16 Open MS Access 16

17 Click Office Button and Select New 17

18 On the right pane, click Browse button 18

19 Select a folder, a file name, and Office 2002- 2003 format with extension *.mdb 19

20 Click Create Button 20

21 Right-click Table1 on left-pane and select Design View 21

22 Give a name to the table and click OK button 22

23 Write StudentID into the first field 23

24 Notice the yellow “Primary Key” icon on the left 24

25 Write “FirstName” into second field and set “Text Size” as 30 25

26 Write “LastName” into third field and set its “Text Size” as 30 26

27 Write “BirthDay” to fourth field and set its type as “Date/Time” 27

28 Write “Age” into fifth field, set its type as “Number” and select “Integer” as its size 28

29 Close Design View of Students table 29

30 Click Yes to save the changes 30

31 Click “Create” tab and select “Table” 31

32 Right-click Table1 and select Design View 32

33 Write the name “Courses” and click OK 33

34 Fill the field names and set their types and sizes. Click Close button. 34

35 Click Yes to save the changes 35

36 Give the command Create - Table 36

37 Right-click Table1 and select Design View 37

38 Write Enrolment as the table name and click OK 38

39 “StudentID”, Number, Long Integer 39

40 “CourseID”, Number, Long Integer 40

41 Using mouse, select both StudentID and CourseID fields 41

42 Click “Primary Key” button and notice that both fields become primary keys 42

43 Close the Design View of Enrolment table 43

44 Click Yes to save the changes 44

45 Double-click Students table 45

46 Fill the records (don’t write anything into StudentID field, it is automatically filled) 46

47 Double-click Courses table and enter the records 47

48 Double-click Enrolment table and enter the records 48

49 Close the MS Access window 49

50 3. Writing the Program a)Adding database file into solution b)Displaying students c)Adding new student d)Changing student info e)Deleting a student f)Displaying all courses a student take 50

51 a) Adding Database File into Solution 51

52 Summary of the Steps Create a new project Copy the database file into the solution folder Add the database file into the solution in Visual Studio 2012 52

53 Copy database file into solution folder 53

54 Right-click project name, click Add, click Existing Item… 54

55 Filter Data Files, Select the database file and click Add 55

56 Select all tables and click Finish 56

57 Choose a database model and click “Next” 57

58 Database file and automatically generated files are displayed in Solution Explorer 58

59 In the “Data Sources” window, you’ll see the data sets for each table 59

60 After you build your program, you’ll see some additional project-related objects at the top of the toolbox 60

61 b) Displaying Students 61

62 Drag & drop the “Students” data set from the “Data Sources” window 62

63 Click on the triangle at the top-right corner of the DataGridView object and click on “Dock in Parent Container” 63

64 Execute the Program You can add a new student; delete or change an existing student using the toolbar above the form 64

65 Precise Control In some cases, this method works for you. But in many cases, you want to control the inserting, deleting and updating operations Additionally, your data may be coming from more than one tables and this type of automatic table display does not work for you Therefore, you may want to add the DataGridView object and code it by yourself. 65

66 The data-related objects are located under the “Data” menu of the toolbox: 66

67 Drag & Drop a DataGridView object 67

68 Choose Students as the Data Source 68

69 Execute the Program 69

70 What to Notice? Notice that... – We didn’t write any code! – When we select Data Source, some controls are added to the form automatically by Visual Studio! – Some codes are added into Load event handler of the form automatically by Visual Studio! 70

71 Which controls are added? 71

72 Which code is added? 72

73 Controls studentsTableAdapter – The interface between program and database schoolDataSet – All data is written into this dataset studentsBindingSource – Binds data to the controls (e.g. DataGridView) on the form 73

74 Controls 74 Database Table Adapter Data Set Binding SourceForm

75 The Code this.studentsTableAdapter.Fill(this.schoolDataSet.Students); 75 Controls added into solution automatically by Visual Studio The method which acquires data from database The table which is used to store query results from Students table of the database

76 Acquiring Data of One Student All data acquirement operations are done by TableAdapter object Fill method is the method which brings all data from the table If you want to get only one student’s data, you need to create a new query in the TableAdapter object 76

77 Click on the triangle on table adapter object and select Add Query command 77

78 Write FillByStudentID as query name and click Query Builder button 78

79 Go to the Filter column of StudentID row and write “=?” and click OK 79

80 Query Builder All data are acquired from database via SQL commands Query builder makes writing SQL commands easier By clicking Execute button, you can display the result of your query Notice that the SQL command is changed after you write “=?” into the Filter column Here, “?” represents a parameter for the query 80

81 Click OK to return to Visual Studio 81

82 A ToolStrip is automatically added into the form 82

83 A new code which uses the new FillByStudentID method is added into the codes 83

84 Run the program, write a number into StudentID box, and click FillByStudentID button 84 Only the student with the selected ID is displayed

85 About the ToolStrip Generally, the ToolStrip which is added by Visual Studio is not wanted You can simply delete the ToolStrip and write your own code Click on the ToolStrip icon below the form (near other automatically added controls) and press Delete button from the keyboard 85

86 Displaying One Student’s Info by Code Place a button on the form and write the following code in its Click event handler: 86 this.studentsTableAdapter.FillByStudentID( this.schoolDataSet.Students, 3); In the code above, the Students table in the data set is filled by the FillByStudentID method of the table adapter with the data of the student with ID 3.

87 Execution of the Program: 87

88 When “One Student” button is clicked: 88

89 Is it displayed automatically? Notice that we only filled the data set and we didn’t write any code to display new data in DataGridView object So, how was data displayed in DataGridView? This task is accomplished by the Binding Source object. So, you just need to bring and write data into the data set and it is automatically displayed in the controls on the form by the Binding Source 89

90 Other Methods in Table Adapter Object The studentsTableAdapter control has some useful methods: – Fill() : Get data from database – Insert() : Add a new record to the database – Update() : Change an existing record – Delete() : Delete an existing record These methods correspond to the SQL commands of types Select, Insert, Update, and Delete respectively 90

91 SQL Command Types and Corresponding Methods SQL Command TypeTable Adapter Method SELECTFill() FillByStudentID() FillByStudentName() etc. INSERTInsert() UPDATEUpdate() DELETEDelete() 91

92 c) Adding New Student (will be covered in next week) 92

93 d) Changing Student Info (will be covered in next week) 93

94 e) Deleting a Student (will be covered in next week) 94

95 f) Displaying All Courses a Student Take (will be covered in next week) 95
