Separating columnName and Value in C#

rowmark asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-17
hi, I have a employee object as shown below
class emp
        public int EmpID { get; set; }
        public string EmpName { get; set; }
        public int deptID { get; set; }


Open in new window

I need to create a mapping either in this class or a different class to map the properties with column name of my SQL
for eg. EmpdID="employeeID"

Open in new window

for eg: emp e=new emp();
When the emp object is populated and passed to the buildValues function it should return array of ComumnName(e.g.employeeID):Value(e.g.1),EmployeeName:tommy,DepartmentID:10)

string[] values=buildValues(emp);

public string[] buildValues(emp e)
  string[] values=null;

  return values;

Open in new window

I have 2 questions: 1. Where do I specify the mappings 2. How do I use the mappings in my buildValues function shown above and build the values string array.

I would really appreciate if you can help me with this
