I'm using the Entity framework in my MVC project. I would like to delete a record when the user navigates to a specific controller. What is wrong with my code below? And how can I accomplish this?

The table name is: fooItem

MYENTITIES oe = new MYENTITIES();
fooItem j = oe.fooItems.ToList().Where(d => d.fooItemId == Id).First();

oe.fooItems.Remove(j);
oe.SaveChanges();

Hi,

try the below code

fooItem f;

using (var ctx = new MYENTITIES())
{
    f = ctx.fooItems.Where(s => s.fooItemId == Id).FirstOrDefault();
}

if(f != null)
{
   using (var newContext = new MYENTITIES())
   {
        newContext.Entry(f).State = System.Data.Entity.EntityState.Deleted;    

        newContext.SaveChanges();
    }
}

I'm  a little confused. Doesn't this code do the same thing.

NOTE: It's very Important that It only deletes the sing record.

MYENTITIES oe = new MYENTITIES();
            var f = oe.fooItems.Where(s => s.fooItemId = Id).FirstOrDefault();
            oe.fooItems.Remove(f);
            oe.SaveChanges();

Hi bmanmike39;

This should work. If that does not work for you please post the exception you are getting and inner exception.
MYENTITIES oe = new MYENTITIES();
fooItem j = oe.fooItems.ToList().Where(d => d.fooItemId == Id).FirstOrDefault();

if( j != null ) { 
    oe.fooItems.Remove(j);
    oe.SaveChanges();
} else {
    // Record was not found
}
