Earlier we have completed our Part-1 on DB First approach. If you have not seen that then I will recommend you to see that first in order to easily understand all the things.

So lets us continue from where we stopped in Part-1.

Now we will add the Controller for the Database operations

database-first-approach-with-asp-net-mvc-framework-20

Select the MVC 5 Controller with View, using EntityFramework.

database-first-approach-with-asp-net-mvc-framework-21

Choose your Model class and Context class and then enter the Controller name.

It will now Scaffold and will generate the Views and Code for us as you can see.

Open the RouteConfig file and change the default controller to the name we have created just now.

public static void RegisterRoutes(RouteCollection routes)
{
        routes.IgnoreRoute("{resource}.axd/{*pathInfo}");

        routes.MapRoute(
                name: "Default",
                url: "{controller}/{action}/{id}",
                defaults: new { controller = "DBOperations", action = "Index", id = UrlParameter.Optional }
        );
}

Let’s see the files which have been generated by the framework itself.

Navigate to View -> DBOperations -> Index.cshtml

    ViewBag.Title = "Index";
}

        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(model => model.Age)
        </th>
        <th></th>
    </tr>

@foreach (var item in Model) {
    <tr>
        <td>
