Require some more help.
So, I'm using WebMatrix as a learning platform with ASP.NET. Having a good time.
I ran through the "Bakery" demo from W3Schools, and I am trying to make a database search function based on what I learned from the demo. I haven't had much luck.
Well, I made a demo database (Airports.sdf) with a table by the same name. It has 5 sample rows with 5 columns. There is an ID column, but the primary column users would use to search by is the column called 'ICAO', a four letter code.
So, from the demo, I learned about
var db = Database.Open("Airports");
var query = db.Query("SELECT * FROM Airports ORDER BY ID");
@foreach(var row in query)
in an HTML table. Makes all the entries show up nicely. Cool.
What I am trying to do is take a text input bar, and a submit button, and have a user be able to enter the 4 letter ICAO, and after clicking the submit button, the corresponding entry and all it's columns appear in a HTML table.
So far I haven't gotten the right phrasing of the db.Query and I don't know how to tie it to a button.
Google suggestions gave me incredibly complicated solutions that I can not understand at this point, at first I thought this was a simple process, but could I be wrong?
Thanks in advance.
