c# object filter and change order

I have the following employee object.

Emp_Number            Name          Designation      salary
1                                   aa               Employee         30000
2                                   a1               Manager           60000
3                                    b1              Employee         35000
6                                   b2              Employee          32000
5                                   c1               Manager           40000



This is the code to get the details.

 public List<Employee> GetEmployeeDetailsAllDesc()
        {
            List<Employee> employeeDetailAllDesc = new List<Employee>();

            string connectionString = GetConnection();
            string queryString = "SELECT * "
              + " FROM employee  order by Emp_Number desc";
            using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(
                       connectionString))
            {
                SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand(
                    queryString, connection);
                connection.Open();
                SqlDataReader reader = command.ExecuteReader();

                if (reader == null || !reader.HasRows)
                {
                    employeeDetailAllDesc = null;
                    return employeeDetailAllDesc ;
                }

                try
                {
                    while (reader.Read())
                    {

                        Employee   employeeAllDesc = new Employee   ();
                        employeeAllDesc.Emp_Number = (int)reader["Emp_Number"];
                        employeeAllDesc.Name = reader["Name"].ToString();
                        employeeAllDesc.Designation= reader["Designation"].ToString();
                        employeeAllDesc.Salary= reader["Salary"];
                        employeeDetailAllDesc.Add(employeeAllDesc);
                    }
                }
                finally
                {
                              reader.Close();
                }
            }

            return  employeeDetailAllDesc
        }




I need to get the 3 different types of result from this  object.

Result 1:  Employee Detail order by Emp_Number    Ascending order

Result 2:  Employee Detail order by Emp_Number    Descending order

Result 3:  Employee Detail  Designation ='Employee'

I do not want to use the three different method to get the  above details and it will hit the DB three times. So how can I achieve this in single hit ?

string queryString;
if(condition1)
queryString = "SELECT * " + " FROM employee  order by Emp_Number desc";
else
 {
  if(condition2)
   queryString = ...
  else
    queryString = ...
 }

Just put in what you require as the conditions and the different (order by clauses) SQL statements and then your function can cope with all three cases you require.

Hi;

You can send all three commands to SQL server and return all three result sets in one call. Make your queryString as follows:

 string queryString = 
       "SELECT * FROM employee ORDER BY Emp_Number ASC;"
     + "SELECT * FROM employee ORDER BY Emp_Number DESC;" 
     + "SELECT * FROM employee WHERE Designation = 'Employee'";

Open in new window

   

Then process the results of the data reader as normal in your code. When you reach the end of the records in the data reader then you can execute the following command on the reader to get to the next result set.

reader.NextResult();

Open in new window


Which will place you just before the first record in the second result set. Then do the same for the last result set.

Is it possible to this operation in object level ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

FernandoSoto- Instead of doing in SQL server can I do it on the object level using linq ?

Fernando SotoRetiredCommented:
Sure it can be but that means that you will need to bring the complete employee table down to local system first.

Yes, no problems.  The initial code you showed brings all the records back (you didn't use any filter, just a sort).  So you can re-order the list without having to requery the database.  I would use a custom sort function but LINQ should do the job as well.
