ef 6 and parameterized stored procedures

I am new to entity framework and need some help with stored procs.  can anyone show me or point me to a tutorial that shows how to use ef 6 to create a model that uses parameterized stored procs and get the results into a view?

I have a stored proc that takes 3 input parameters and returns a result set built from 2 different tables.  this is what I want to call in a view.

First of all you would need to create a model that would fit the results of your stored procedure.

For instance let's say that the stored procedure would return an id and a name. You would have to create a model (a class):

public class MySPModel
    public int id {get;set;}
    public string name {get;set;}

Open in new window

Now you may use a method in your datacontext.DataBase that enables you to run custom queries. Custom queries van be whatever you would write on an SSMS query window. A simple sql query, or exec a stored procedure.

For this do the following in your controller:

public ActionResult Index(int id)
    var idParam = new SqlParameter
        ParameterName = "id",
        Value = id
    var results = datacontext.DataBase.SqlQuery<MySPModel>("dbo.myStoredProcedureName @id", idParam).ToList();

    return View(results);

Open in new window

Now add a view:

@model List<MySPModel>

@foreach(var model in Model)

Open in new window

As you can understand my example only uses one param, but likewise you can add the other two. If your stored procedure returns from a specific table (lets call it simply TableName) then you could miss the creation of the model as it is already in your edml. so you could call the SqlQuery as:

var results = datacontext.DataBase.SqlQuery<TableName>("dbo.myStoredProcedureName @id", idParam).ToList();

Open in new window

Hope it helps,

There is a way to generate the code from the context designer:
