Validation Errors while saving parent and child entities in Entity Framework 6 RRS feed

  • Question


    Unable to update parent elements in entity framework. For an attached entity when I am trying to set the ActiveInd state to 0 I am getting an unusual error as described below.

     public override void Delete(Architect item)
                // Implement Delete logic based on the availability of 'ActiveInd', Update to 0
                // If not available then delete the record permanently
                     item.ActiveInd = false;
                    // Set the object to be deleted
                    //_entities.Entry(item).State = EntityState.Deleted;
                catch (Exception ex)
                    throw ex;
    Causes to throw Entity Validation Errors on Architect.Contact and Architect.Contact.Address entites

    Errors says that FirstName, LastName and PhoneNumber on Contact field is missing.

    Whereas all these members already have some data as shown below:

    Similar error for Archtiect.Contact.Address for 3 required properties.

    Any suggestion on this.

    Thanks in advance.
