I am using entity framework and have the following:
var id = Convert.ToInt32(ddBlogs.SelectedValue);

            var blog = (from b in db.Blogs
                        where b.ID == id                        
                        select b).FirstOrDefault();


Open in new window

blog has a list of BlogComments as in blog.BlogComments() and when I try to do the remove I am getting:
The DELETE statement conflicted with the REFERENCE constraint \"FK__BlogComme__BlogI__1DE57479\". The conflict occurred in database \"MyDatabase\", table \"dbo.BlogComments\", column 'BlogID'.\r\nThe statement has been terminated."}

How can I get this delete to cascade

This blog row which you are deleting has a reference in some other table. So you to delete them first and delete this blog

OK great thanks for your link there.

Including the blogcomments in the initial load meant they could be deleted.

As it is a simple application this will work fine but for a larger size app I would have created the cascade rule on the db.

Thanks again.
