Step 2: Create the Web Form

The next step is to add a web form to the application that will allow the user to maintain the list of UserAccount records.

1.    Right click on the OrderSystem project in the Solution Explorer and select AddàNew Item… from the pop-up menu.

2.    Select the Web Form template and change the name to Users.aspx.  Click the Add button.

3.    The HTML view of the web form should appear in Visual Studio.  Add the following code between the div tags.

<table>
  <tr>
    <td>Select A User:</td>
    <td><asp:DropDownList runat=server ID="ddlUsers" AutoPostBack="True">
        </asp:DropDownList> </td>
  </tr>        
  <tr>
    <td>First Name:</td>
    <td><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtFirstName"></asp:TextBox></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Last Name:</td>
    <td><asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txtLastName"></asp:TextBox></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Inserted:</td>
    <td><asp:Label runat="server" ID="lblInserted"></asp:Label> </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>Updated:</td>
    <td><asp:Label runat="server" ID="lblUpdated"></asp:Label> </td>
  </tr>
</table>    
<asp:Button runat=server ID="btnSave" Text="Save" />
<asp:Button ID="btnDelete" runat="server" Text="Delete" />

This code uses a HTML table to format the controls on the web form.  If you switch to Design view the form should look like the following image.

I can´t use the lines the code below to update the entity:

db.UserAccounts.Attach(userAccount);
db.ObjectStateManager.ChangeObjectState(userAccount, System.Data.EntityState.Modified);

on the first line I get the message: Attach is not a member of System.Data.Objects.ObjectQuery(Of...)

What´s wrong ?

I'd love to see an article this straightforward and approachable in an n-tier tutorial? The EF seems very simple until you try and separate concerns. What if I'd like to store all of my business logic and data access in a separate class library project?

This is a very nice article. Its seems like a cake walk creating applications using VS2010. Hope we get to work on VS 2010 very soon.
