Hi! How possible to save data from TextBox with DataContext to sql Server?

In my XAML  (WinPage.XAML) i have the TextBox namely TxtBox1, TxtBox2, TxtBox3 and Button name button1. I Have a Datacontext name  WinOrganizationContext. So, now in XAML.cs I put some code in my button1 as follows:

        private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            WinOrganizationContext _iContext = new WinOrganizationContext();
            _iContext.ID = TxtBox1.Text;
            _iContext.xName = TxtBox2.Text;
            _iContext.fName = TxtBox3.Text;

            MessageBox.Show("New files has been saved!")
           
        }

_iContext is geeting error! And I do not know if i could insert new files on this. Is this possible?

what is the error you are getting ?

ideally if the data context of ur view is WinOrganizationContext  then you can do this in your xaml to directly bind text to property inside WinOrganizationContext  

<TextBox Text="{Binding ID }"  x:Name="TxtBox1"/>
<TextBox Text="{Binding xName }"  x:Name="TxtBox2"/>
<TextBox Text="{Binding fName }"  x:Name="TxtBox3"/>

Hi! How to save it to my database?
      I'm trying to follow as what instructed above so heres my xaml
      <TextBox Text="{Binding BranchName }"  x:Name="TxtBox1"/>
      <Button Height="40" Content="Save" Name="Save" Click="Save_Click"/>

I have also created a Class name AppState.cs as follows;

    public static WinOrganizationContext WinOroganizationContext { get;  set;}
    public static SalesRecord _record { get; set; }

In my xaml.cs are as follows;

   private void Save_Click(object sender,RoutedEventsArgs e)
{
   AppState._record.BranchName = TxtBox1.Text;
   AppState._record.Cash = 0;
   MessageBox("New files has been added");
}


When I tried to execute and Click save an error says;
  Object reference not set to an object..

Help Please...

where are you initialising the properties inside AppState ? and i dont see any code setting the data context of the view. unless you set the data context of the view, there is not point in giving binding in xaml

datagrid is used if the user will update multiple records at a time , is that the case here ?

see sample below

<Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.MainWindow"
        xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
        xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
        Title="MainWindow" SizeToContent="WidthAndHeight">
    <Grid>
        <Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
            <ColumnDefinition />
            <ColumnDefinition Width="200"/>
        </Grid.ColumnDefinitions>
        <Grid.RowDefinitions>
            <RowDefinition />
            <RowDefinition />
            <RowDefinition />
            <RowDefinition />
        </Grid.RowDefinitions>
        <TextBlock Margin="4" Grid.Column="0" Text="Id" />
        <TextBox Margin="4" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" Text="{Binding ID}"  x:Name="TxtBox1"/>
        <TextBlock Margin="4" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="1" Text="Name" />
        <TextBox Margin="4" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1" Text="{Binding xName}"  x:Name="TxtBox2"/>
        <TextBlock Margin="4" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="2" Text="F Name" />
        <TextBox Margin="4" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="2" Text="{Binding fName}"  x:Name="TxtBox3"/>
        
        <Button Content="Save" Click="Button_Click" Grid.Row="4" Grid.Column="1" Width="100" Margin="5" HorizontalAlignment="Right" />
    </Grid>
</Window>

Open in new window


    public partial class MainWindow : Window
    {
        public MainWindow()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
            this.DataContext = AppState.WinOrganizationContex;
        }

        private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            MessageBox.Show(string.Format("Id - {0} ,x name -{1} ,f name -{2}" , AppState.WinOrganizationContex.ID,
                AppState.WinOrganizationContex.xName,AppState.WinOrganizationContex.fName));
        }
    }

Open in new window


    public static class AppState
    {
        public static WinOrganizationContex WinOrganizationContex { get; set; }
        static AppState()
        {
            WinOrganizationContex = new WinOrganizationContex();
        }
    }

    public class  WinOrganizationContex
    {
        public string ID { get; set; }
        public string xName { get; set; }
        public string fName { get; set; }
    }
