Exception: System Data Entity Infrastructure DbUpdateException


I was working on MVC application using Entity Framework, MVC, Jquery. I hit the Save button to save corresponding values into database, but this time did not go fine as usual, I got the given error An exception of type 'System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DbUpdateException' occurred in EntityFramework.dll but was not handled in user code.

Error Description

An exception of type 'System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DbUpdateException' occurred in EntityFramework.dll but was not handled in user code


When I started working to resolve issue, debugging deeply and came across of stack trace message then I found that this issue was due to database table identity off.

Table Identity off

I just set table Identity on and again tried to save relevant values into database, this time it worked fine for me.
Table Identity On


Another very good experience of MVC, Entity Framework, Jquery application. Every time, in every new application often comes new issues. From these issues, we learnt a new lesson every time and smoothing way to next time. Above, I have explained in detail how can we resolve issue of An exception of type 'System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DbUpdateException' occurred in EntityFramework.dll but was not handled in user code.

TempData vs ViewData vs ViewBag


Today, I am explaining about TempData vs ViewData vs Viewbag while working in MVC. All three (TempData, ViewData,  ViewBag) terms are used to pass data from controller to View. These all have different  capability to preserve data while passing from Controller to View using MVC application.


  1. ViewBag is used dynamically to pass the data from controller to view.
  2. It is being introduced since C# 4.0 .Net Framework.
  3. ViewData is property of ControllerBase Class in from .Net Framework 4.5 C#.
  4. ViewBag life span is very short. It only lies under current request.
  5. If it redirects then its value becomes null.
  6. It does not required to typecasting for getting data from Controller to View.
  7. ViewBag is slower than ViewData.
