How to delete data from table (LINQ To SQL):

How to delete data from table (LINQ To SQL)
The following code snippet shows how you can delete data row from the table and also in database. For example there is a table in your database with the name Customer, which contains the following columns in it:
ID, Name, Address
This is the connection string which let you connect to the server:
               Data Source = "Your Server Name"
               Initial Catalog = "The name of your database"
               Integrated Security = "true" for getting your credentials automatic to your current login account in windows, in this way you don't have to use user id and password while establishing connection with SQL server.

public static string conString = @"Data Source =  MOAVIA_OSAMA-PC\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog = MyFirst; Integrated Security = true";
    The following is the class generated when you add "Linq to SQL classes" to project, which takes an argument of connection string:

DataClasses1DataContext dc = new DataClasses1DataContext(conString);

Now, you want to delete row of data from the table, first you have to search the data which you want to delete, so the following code search the Customer against the ID = 5:

  var query =
         from Customer c in dc.Customers
         where c.ID == 5
         select c;

In above, if the Customer against ID = 5 exists then it will be stored in query, now we will delete with the following command, going through each of the record that is in query and delete it… here the record will be one because we are searching against ID so it is unique. DeleteOnSubmit() function deletes the record from its table.

    foreach (var item in query)

The following statement saves in database table:



    // searching query against the ID = 4
    Customer query =
             (from Customer c in dc.Customers
              where c.ID == 4
              select c).Single();

    // delete the searched customer from table
    // save to database also
