Connect Bot Framework to DB | INSERT Data to DB using Entity Framework

Before going to Bot framework connection to DB, we will learn how to Insert data to Local SQL Database using Entity Framework. The concept will be the same for Microsoft Bot Framework.

Insert Data to DB

We will continue from where we left in the 4th prerequisite. Open the UserRespository.cs and add the below method that will insert the data to the DB.

public bool InsertEmployee(Employee employee)
            bool status = false;
                status = true;
            catch (Exception e)
            return status;

If insertion is successful, return true else return false. Add the following code in Program.cs file to test the above method.

Employee emp5 = new Employee();
            emp5.EmpId = "E1005";
            emp5.EmpName = "Juliet";

            bool status = userRepository.InsertEmployee(emp5);
            if (status)
                Console.WriteLine("Record Inserted");
                Console.WriteLine("Record Not Inserted");

Run the console app and check the output. Also, check the data in Employee Table.
