Deleting Row from Database C# WPF Linq RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to delete a row from the Database on a selected row in my Datagrid I already got how to select a row in my Datagrid, but when I delete it on button_click it only deletes it in my Datagrid but not in my actual Database

    I'm using the following code to delete my Rows:

    private void btnDeleteUser_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
                DialogResult dr = System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Do You Want to Delete this User?", "", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Warning);
                if (dr == DialogResult.Yes)
                    var query =
                        from t in db.tbl_Users
                        where t.Name == name
                        select t;
                    foreach (var t in query)
                    var refresh =
                                (from q in db.tbl_Users
                                 select new { Name = q.Name, Rights = q.Rights, Operatortag = q.Operatortag, Active = q.Active, Cardcode = q.CardCode }).ToList();
                    dgUsers.ItemsSource = refresh;

    My Database-property is set on Copy If Newer and I already tried to set in to Copy Always but that wouldn't help either.

    Does someone know the answer to my problem?

  • Hi programming wolf,

    Based on your description, I create a demo with Localdb, it work well, Could you please provide a bit more information, such as what kind of database you are using, do you encounter any exception?

    If possible, could you please provide a simple demo (include database) which I could reproduce your issue on my side. we'll try my best to find a solution to resolve it.

    Best regards,
