Creating a Movie Database Application in 15 minutes with ASP.NET MVC

I could not remember where I downloaded the sample code for the video “Creating a Movie Database Application in 15 minutes with ASP.NET MVC”. The one that I have downloaded is without delete functionality. I have added the View (Delete) and the code below in the Homecontroller.cs.

publicActionResult Delete(int id)


  var movieToEdit = (from m in _db.MovieSet

                     where m.Id == id

                     select m).First();


  return View(movieToEdit);




// POST: /Home/Delete



publicActionResult Delete(Movie movieToCreate)



  var originalMovie = (from m in _db.MovieSet

                       where m.Id == movieToCreate.Id

                       select m).First();


  if (!ModelState.IsValid)

    return View();





  return RedirectToAction(“Index”);



Add the following code to Index.aspx too (just the delete line).



    <%= Html.ActionLink(“Edit”, “Edit”, new { id=item.Id }) %> |

    <%= Html.ActionLink(“Details”, “Details”, new { id=item.Id })%> |

    <%= Html.ActionLink(“Delete”, “Delete”, new { id=item.Id })%>
