Introduction

In this article, we will learn MVC using Angular data binding for dynamic control in DataTables from a server side Web API using Visual Studio 2017.

In this article, we are going to:

  • Create a Database.
  • Create a Store procedure.
  • Create an MVC Application.
  • Use Angular DataTables Dynamic Control.

Create Database

Open SQL Server 2016, then click the “New Query” window and run the below query.

USE [master]
GO
CREATE DATABASE [test]
 CONTAINMENT = NONE
 ON  PRIMARY
( NAME = N'test', FILENAME = N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\test.mdf' , SIZE = 8192KB , MAXSIZE = UNLIMITED, FILEGROWTH = 65536KB ),
 FILEGROUP [DocFiles] CONTAINS FILESTREAM  DEFAULT
( NAME = N'FileStream', FILENAME = N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\FileStream' , MAXSIZE = UNLIMITED)
 LOG ON
( NAME = N'test_log', FILENAME = N'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\test_log.ldf' , SIZE = 8192KB , MAXSIZE = 2048GB , FILEGROWTH = 65536KB )
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET COMPATIBILITY_LEVEL = 130
GO
IF (1 = FULLTEXTSERVICEPROPERTY('IsFullTextInstalled'))
begin
EXEC [test].[dbo].[sp_fulltext_database] @action = 'enable'
end
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET ANSI_NULL_DEFAULT OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET ANSI_NULLS OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET ANSI_PADDING OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET ANSI_WARNINGS OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET ARITHABORT OFF

ALTER DATABASE [test] SET AUTO_CLOSE OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET AUTO_SHRINK OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS ON
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET CURSOR_CLOSE_ON_COMMIT OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET CURSOR_DEFAULT  GLOBAL
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET CONCAT_NULL_YIELDS_NULL OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET NUMERIC_ROUNDABORT OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET RECURSIVE_TRIGGERS OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET  DISABLE_BROKER

ALTER DATABASE [test] SET AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET DATE_CORRELATION_OPTIMIZATION OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET TRUSTWORTHY OFF

GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET PARAMETERIZATION SIMPLE
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET READ_COMMITTED_SNAPSHOT OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET HONOR_BROKER_PRIORITY OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET RECOVERY FULL
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET  MULTI_USER
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET PAGE_VERIFY CHECKSUM
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET DB_CHAINING OFF
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET FILESTREAM( NON_TRANSACTED_ACCESS = FULL, DIRECTORY_NAME = N'DocFileDirctory' )
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET TARGET_RECOVERY_TIME = 60 SECONDS
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET DELAYED_DURABILITY = DISABLED
GO
EXEC sys.sp_db_vardecimal_storage_format N'test', N'ON'
GO
ALTER DATABASE [test] SET QUERY_STORE = OFF
GO

Create Table

I will be creating a new table based on employee info.

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[EmpMaster](
    [Row_id] [numeric](18, 0) IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
    [Emp_Code] [varchar](10) NULL,
    [Emp_FName] [varchar](50) NULL,
    [Emp_LName] [varchar](50) NULL,
    [Emp_Status] [bit] NULL,
    [Emp_DOB] [datetime] NULL,
    [Emp_Maritalstatus] [varchar](10) NULL,
    [Emp_Role] [varchar](50) NULL,
    [Emp_Department] [varchar](50) NULL,
    [Emp_Address] [varchar](500) NULL,
    [Emp_Profilestatus] [int] NULL,
    [Emp_Expriance] [int] NULL,
    [Create_By] [varchar](50) NULL,
    [Create_Date] [datetime] NULL
) ON [PRIMARY]

After creating the table, add some data.

SET IDENTITY_INSERT [dbo].[EmpMaster] ON
GO
INSERT [dbo].[EmpMaster] ([Row_id], [Emp_Code], [Emp_FName], [Emp_LName], [Emp_Status], [Emp_DOB], [Emp_Maritalstatus], [Emp_Role], [Emp_Department], [Emp_Address], [Emp_Profilestatus], [Emp_Expriance], [Create_By], [Create_Date]) VALUES (CAST(1 AS Numeric(18, 0)), N'1000', N'Amit ', N'Sharma', 1, CAST(N'1958-04-20T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime), N'Married', N'Admin', N'Dev', N'California', 100, 20, N'Thiru', CAST(N'2017-07-24T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime))
GO
INSERT [dbo].[EmpMaster] ([Row_id], [Emp_Code], [Emp_FName], [Emp_LName], [Emp_Status], [Emp_DOB], [Emp_Maritalstatus], [Emp_Role], [Emp_Department], [Emp_Address], [Emp_Profilestatus], [Emp_Expriance], [Create_By], [Create_Date]) VALUES (CAST(2 AS Numeric(18, 0)), N'2000', N'Erik ', N'Dietrich', 0, CAST(N'1988-05-10T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime), N'Married', N'Employee', N'Dev', N'Washington', 50, 10, N'Thiru', CAST(N'2017-07-24T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime))
GO
INSERT [dbo].[EmpMaster] ([Row_id], [Emp_Code], [Emp_FName], [Emp_LName], [Emp_Status], [Emp_DOB], [Emp_Maritalstatus], [Emp_Role], [Emp_Department], [Emp_Address], [Emp_Profilestatus], [Emp_Expriance], [Create_By], [Create_Date]) VALUES (CAST(3 AS Numeric(18, 0)), N'3000', N'Abdul ', N'Azeez', 1, CAST(N'1990-02-14T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime), N'UnMarried', N'Employee', N'Dev', N'Michigan', 80, 8, N'Thiru', CAST(N'2017-07-24T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime))
GO
INSERT [dbo].[EmpMaster] ([Row_id], [Emp_Code], [Emp_FName], [Emp_LName], [Emp_Status], [Emp_DOB], [Emp_Maritalstatus], [Emp_Role], [Emp_Department], [Emp_Address], [Emp_Profilestatus], [Emp_Expriance], [Create_By], [Create_Date]) VALUES (CAST(4 AS Numeric(18, 0)), N'4000', N'Dizzy', N'Dee', 1, CAST(N'1995-01-10T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime), N'UnMarried', N'Employee', N'Test', N'Kentucky', 90, 5, N'Thiru', CAST(N'2017-07-24T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime))
GO
INSERT [dbo].[EmpMaster] ([Row_id], [Emp_Code], [Emp_FName], [Emp_LName], [Emp_Status], [Emp_DOB], [Emp_Maritalstatus], [Emp_Role], [Emp_Department], [Emp_Address], [Emp_Profilestatus], [Emp_Expriance], [Create_By], [Create_Date]) VALUES (CAST(5 AS Numeric(18, 0)), N'5000', N'John  ', N'Sonmez ', 1, CAST(N'1989-05-10T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime), N'Married', N'Employee', N'Test', N'North Carolina', 0, 2, N'Thiru', CAST(N'2017-07-24T00:00:00.000' AS DateTime))
GO

Create Store Procedure

I have written the store procedure for my data operations to run below SP. In this procedure, I have will be retrieving different data for dynamic control.

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[PC_EmpMaster]

    @Row_id             BIGINT=NULL,
    @MODE               VARCHAR(10)=NULL
AS
 BEGIN
    SET NOCOUNT ON;
        IF(@MODE ='GET')
        BEGIN SELECT Row_id,Emp_Code,Emp_FName,Emp_LName,Emp_Status,CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), CONVERT( DATE ,Emp_DOB)) AS Emp_DOB,Emp_Maritalstatus,Emp_Profilestatus,Emp_Expriance,Emp_Address,Create_By,Create_Date AS Create_Date FROM EmpMaster
        END
        ELSE IF(@MODE ='GETBYID')
        BEGIN
SELECT Emp_Code,Emp_FName,Emp_LName,Emp_Role,Emp_Department,Emp_Address FROM EmpMaster WHERE Row_id=@Row_id
        END
    SET NOCOUNT OFF;

END

Open Visual Studio 2017.

MVC

Go to New menu >Click New and Project. Now it will open the New Project Window.

MVC

You can select ASP.NET Web Application on Framework 4.5. Enter the name of the project in “Solution name” text box then click OK.

MVC

One more window should appear. Select MVC Template in this pop-up and click OK.

After your project is created, follow the below links so you can download the neccessary plugin files.

Then inject the “DataTables” key word into the Angular module:

angular.module('uiroute',['ui.router', 'datatables']);

Create and design an HTML page with a table, with “datatable=”ng” inserted in teh <table> element. Then bind the Server data.

<table datatable="ng" class="table-responsive table-bordered table-striped ">

            <thead style="background :rgb(142, 28, 123); color: white;">

                <tr>
                    <th>

                    </th>
                    <th >
                        Row ID #
                    </th>
                    <th >
                        Employee Code
                    </th>

                    </th>
                    <th  >
                        Profile Status

Using Angular DataTables

Create a “Model” folder in solution explorer and create a new class in the model folder.

public class ParamModel
    {
public string Mode { get; set; }
public long Row_id { get; set; }
}

Write the below method in the home controller. “LoadData” will display the data in DataTables.

[HttpPost]
      #region LoadData
      public async Task<JsonResult> LoadData(BookModel Param)
      {
          var result = await Task.Run(() =>
          {

              try
              {
                  HttpResponseMessage response = HttpClient.PostAsJsonAsync(apiUrl + "/GetEmployeeDetails", Param).Result;
                  if (response.IsSuccessStatusCode)
                  {
                      var responseData = response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
                      return Json(responseData, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
                  }
                  else
                  {
                     return Json("Error", JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
                  }
              }
              catch (Exception ex)
              {
                  return Json("Error" + ex.ToString(), JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);
              }
          });
          return result;
      }
      #endregion

In this method, I have called a Web API function with the async method. Refer the API URL as I have shown below in your Web.config file.

<add key="APIUrl" value="http://localhost:53490/api" />

Create an Angular controller and service for getting data from the server side.

Angular Controller

$scope.loadTable = function () {
        var Param={
            Mode:'GET'
        }
        var ServiceData = BookService.loadGrid(Param);
        ServiceData.then(function (response) {
            var result = JSON.parse(response.data);
            $scope.LoadData = result.loadEmployeeList;
        }, function () {
        });
    }

    $scope.loadTable();

    $scope.LoadById = function (Row_id)
    {
        var Param = {
            Row_id: Row_id,
            Mode: 'GETBYID'
        }
        var ServiceData = BookService.loadGrid(Param);
        ServiceData.then(function (response) {
            var result = JSON.parse(response.data);
            $scope.SubGrid = result.loadEmployeeList;
        }, function () {
        });
    }

    $scope.SubGrid = function (Row_id,index)
    {
        if ($scope.ShowGrid == index) {
            $scope.ShowGrid = -1;
            $scope.SubGrid = {};
        } else {
            $scope.ShowGrid = index;
            $scope.LoadById(Row_id);
        }

Angular Service

this.loadGrid = function (Param) {
        var response = $http({
            method: "post",
            url: "Home/LoadData",
            data: JSON.stringify(Param),
            dataType: "json"
        });
        return response;
    }

Do not forget to refer the plugin files, and any JS files you also created.
