Entity Framework selection query

I am making a simple application for insert, update, delete, select data with

Entity Framework

I already made insertion, deletion and select all data.

Now I want to select with where condition with filter of two fields

For ex : I have table with


Now need selection like
where email = "" and password = ""

I know how to write query in SQL but having not clues with
entity framework

Also need to store this result in datatable and looping solution both for learning purpose.

This can help many beginners


Using Linq To Entities with lambda expression:

var result = dBContext.Account.Where(a=> == "" && a.password =="").ToList();

Using Linq To Entities the less fancy way:

var result = (from a in dBContext.Account
              where == "" && a.password ==""
              select a).ToList();

Lambda expressions are used most of the time. Some people find lambda's less readable. I think it's more a personal taste that depends from your background.


dbContext should be replaced by the name you gave your dbContext/Entities when setting up your Entitiy framework EDMX or Code First Classes.

Account should be replaced by the name of your table/Entity

To loop and edit the results you can do:

foreach(var account in results)
   //do something with the properties = ""

//store the changes again in the db
