MS SQL Batch or Bulk UPDATE and all around EF

Dear friends,


Thank you for comming and here I will show you how to make a huge bulk UPDATE in database from your C# code using Entity Framework.

My issue was about calculation prices for +50K products and then updating these product prices all at once.

Before this optimization SQL Update took more than 60 seconds ( using different approaches and of course you even should not think to do it with EF update/save method at all). After implementation of this approach we get less than 10 seconds for updating +50K products (of course it depends on hosting and environment you use). So what is that?


Table-Valued Parameters

yes, may be you have heard about it but have not understand it enough to use or just have not believed that it would really help you.


So everything is really easy - you create table, put all data you need for your update - it is +50K rows and pass it to your stored procedure that knows how to use it, here is an example:

- create table and columns

                            DataTable tblUpdate = new DataTable();
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("Id", typeof(int));               
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("DeliveryDateId", typeof(int));   
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("OldPrice", typeof(decimal));     
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("Price", typeof(decimal));        
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("ProductCost", typeof(decimal));  
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("AdditionalShippingCharge", typeof(decimal)); 
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("DisableBuyButton", typeof(bool));
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("Published", typeof(bool));       
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("AdminComment", typeof(string));  
                            tblUpdate.Columns.Add("UpdatedOnUtc", typeof(DateTime));

- add rows

...
                            object[] row = new object[10];                            
                            ...
                            ...
                            tblUpdate.Rows.Add(row);
                            ...

- now it is time to push it to SQL

                            var dataSettings = Core.Data.DataSettingsManager.LoadSettings();

                            using (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection conn = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(dataSettings.DataConnectionString))
                            {
                                conn.Open();
                                
                                //check if table-valued type is already exists
                                using (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand cmd = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(
@"IF TYPE_ID(N'TargetUDT') IS NULL CREATE TYPE [TargetUDT] AS TABLE
(

                                {
                                    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
                                    cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
                                }

//create or update stored procedure using (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand cmd = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand( @"CREATE OR ALTER PROCEDURE usp_UpdateAllProdPrices (@tvpUpdateProducts [TargetUDT] READONLY) AS BEGIN UPDATE dbo.Product SET Product.DeliveryDateId = ec.DeliveryDateId, Product.OldPrice = ec.OldPrice, Product.Price = ec.Price, Product.ProductCost = ec.ProductCost, Product.AdditionalShippingCharge = ec.AdditionalShippingCharge, Product.DisableBuyButton = ec.DisableBuyButton, Product.Published = ec.Published, Product.AdminComment = ec.AdminComment, Product.UpdatedOnUtc = ec.UpdatedOnUtc FROM @tvpUpdateProducts AS ec INNER JOIN dbo.Product ON dbo.Product.Id = ec.Id END", conn)) { cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text; cmd.ExecuteNonQuery(); } //run the stored procedure and pass the all data as table-valued parameter using (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand cmd = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand( @"usp_UpdateAllProdPrices", conn)) { System.Data.SqlClient.SqlParameter tvpParam = cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@tvpUpdateProducts", tblUpdate); tvpParam.SqlDbType = SqlDbType.Structured; tvpParam.TypeName = "[TargetUDT]"; cmd.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure; cmd.ExecuteNonQuery(); } conn.Close(); }


That's it guys enjoy your super-fast bulk update :)




Thank you and see you :)

Dropbox and Drive C - Clean disk on Windows and Windows Server

Hello friends,


You are trying to free up a few GBs on drive C? You tried to clean WinSxS folder, you have tried Disk cleanup util and even the Dism.exe but still need a few GBs of free space? ;)


You got to the right place - your problem is Dropbox.

- Go to the Program Files (x86) > Dropbox folder
- Delete all Client XX.XX folders except the latest one


You will be amaized that it will free up to 2-4 GB of space! :)

Split by comma but not inside of any parentheses or brackets

Hello friends,


If you are here then you in need of the same as me - split string by comma that is not inside of any brackets or parentheses.

So to do that you need the following piece of code (C# code):

string oval = "Home, Edit, HDMI (4K, ARC), Test, Double 2.0 x1, Multi (F1, (f2-f5, f6, 58), FF, o2), ARG";
string roval = "";
int isOpen = 0;
for (int i = 0i < oval.Lengthi++)
{
    if (isOpen <= 0 && oval[i] == ',')
    {
        roval += ",,";
    }
    else if (isOpen > 0 && (oval[i] == ')' || oval[i] == ']' || oval[i] == '}'))
    {
        isOpen--;
        roval += oval[i];
    }
    else if ((oval[i] == '(' || oval[i] == '[' || oval[i] == '{'))
    {
        isOpen++;
        roval += oval[i];
    }
    else
    {
        roval += oval[i];
    }
}

string[] split = roval.Split(",,"StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);


String you get to split looks like this: 

Home,, Edit,, HDMI (4K, ARC),, Test,, Double 2.0 x1,, Multi (F1, (f2-f5, f6, 58), FF, o2),, ARG

so you need just split it by double comma now.

This is fast, short and clear code that can be easily translated into any other language


Thank you and see you :)

NopCommerce customization - Full cycle of product adding in batch

Are you in need of adding a lot +40K of products, attributes, images, slugs, tags, manufacturers in batch?

Then this post should be same useful for you as for me.


In my case I did require to implement a logic for adding more than 40,000 products with attributes, images, etc. feeding data from a 3rd party API. We will add products to all enabled categories and subcategories that are shown on home page/menu.


So less water more sense :) - here is the step by step explanation:



        [AuthorizeAdmin]
        [Area(AreaNames.Admin)]
        public IActionResult GetProgress()
        {
            //to keep progress
            string progress = string.Empty;
            var storeScope = _storeContext.ActiveStoreScopeConfiguration;
            var directory = "~/wwwroot/images/uploaded/";
            
            string curl = string.Empty;
            //Use direct repo access because of cache problem with re-reading data from settings
            Core.Data.IRepository<Core.Domain.Configuration.Setting> _settingRepository = Core.Infrastructure.EngineContext.Current.Resolve<Core.Data.IRepository<Core.Domain.Configuration.Setting>>();

            try
            {
                //get list of rest of categories we should add product for
                string ddcat = _settingRepository.Table.SingleOrDefault(s=>s.Name=="DDCategories" && s.StoreId== storeScope)?.Value;
                if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(ddCat))
                {
                    //seems this is the first run
                    var nopallcats = _categoryService.GetAllCategoriesDisplayedOnHomePage(false).Where(c=>c.Published).Select(s => new Category() { ID = s.Id }).ToList();
                    List<int> finalcategories = new List<int>();
                    foreach (var c1 in nopallcats)

                        if (aa1.Count > 0)

            }
            bdata.Clear();
        }


This is not really 100% optimized, especially the DB adding/updating part because of using _services instead of _repositories

but seem I had problems using _repos everywhere and not sure why.


Thank you and see you soon

NopCommerce customization - Message Token

Hello friends,


this time I will show how to add your own message tokens to NopCommerce. For that you need two things: create a message token class and register it with dependencyregistrar.

So here is the code:

    public class FeederOT : IDependencyRegistrar
    {
        public int Order => 1000;

        public void Register(ContainerBuilder builder, ITypeFinder typeFinder, NopConfig config)
        {
            builder.RegisterType<OrderMessageToken>().As<IMessageTokenProvider>().InstancePerLifetimeScope();
        }
    }

    public class OrderMessageToken: Nop.Services.Messages.MessageTokenProvider
    {
        #region Fields

        private readonly CatalogSettings _catalogSettings;

        private readonly ICurrencyService _currencyService;
        private readonly ICustomerAttributeFormatter _customerAttributeFormatter;
        private readonly ICustomerService _customerService;
        private readonly IDateTimeHelper _dateTimeHelper;

So, you create your own class, inherit it from the Nop.Services.Messages.MessageTokenProvider and define your own token inside of the AddOrderTokens method.

After that you register it with the IDependencyRegistrar.


Now you can use your own tokens inside of message templates.

C#, Json and PHP Form

Today, I had a task to submit data to an PHP API that takes Json data via HTTP POST using ContentType "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" and format like:

order[phone]=+48733552233&order[name]=First Name Last Name&order[deliveryCost]=50&order[deliveryStockCode]=39931b80-e1c2-11e3-8c4a-0050568002cf&order[comment]=test api&orderItems[0][itemID]=194559-0&orderItems[0][salePrice]=9500&orderItems[0][count]=2&orderItems[1][itemID]=071402-0&orderItems[1][salePrice]=750&orderItems[1][count]=5&key=777777777777777

Hah, crazy right? I have never seen such crazy things before and I had no chance except just take it and create myself.

Google did help me a little bit but in my case there were arrays of objects so I had to modify and extend a code I did find on internet.

So, to transform this:


                    var json = new
                    {
                        key = apiKey,
                        order = new
                        {
                            phone = PhoneNumber,
                            name = LastName + " " + FirstName,
                            comment = Comment,
                            deliveryCost = Math.Round(OrderItems.Sum(s => s.AdditionalShippingCharge), 0, MidpointRounding.ToEven).ToString(),
                            deliveryStockCode = Address
                        },
                        orderItems = OrderItems.Select(s => new
                        {
                            itemID = s.ProdId,
                            salePrice = Math.Round(s.Price, 0, MidpointRounding.ToEven),
                            count = s.Quantity
                        }).ToArray()
                    };

into the form data like I shown before, here is my method (it is rough so I'm sure it is not perfect but I had no time to create it cool and clean and may be will re-write it in the future).


Also, in my case , there were anonymous types so it had to identify them somehow, but as you may know already, anonymous types in C# has no explicit and compilation time type declaration to get its typeof().


        public string JsonToHttpFormString(object request, string separator = ",")
        {
            if (request == null)
                throw new ArgumentNullException("request");

            // Get all properties on the object
            var properties = request.GetType().GetProperties()
                .Where(x => x.CanRead)
                .Where(x => x.GetValue(request, null) != null)
                .ToDictionary(x => x.Name, x => x.GetValue(request, null));

            // Get names for all IEnumerable properties (excl. string)
            var propertyNames = properties
                .Where(x => !(x.Value is string) && ((x.Value is IEnumerable) || (x.Value != null && x.Value.GetType().IsConstructedGenericType && x.Value.GetType().Name.Contains("AnonymousType"))))
                .Select(x => x.Key)
                .ToList();

            // Concat all IEnumerable properties into a comma separated string
            bool isAnonym = false;
            foreach (var key in propertyNames)
            {
                var valueType = properties[key].GetType();
                var valueElemType = valueType.IsGenericType
                                        ? valueType.GetGenericArguments()[0]
                                        : valueType.GetElementType();

                isAnonym = valueType.Name.Contains("AnonymousType");
                if (valueElemType.IsPrimitive || valueElemType == typeof(string) || isAnonym)
                {
                    var enumerable = properties[key] as IEnumerable;
                    if (isAnonym && !valueType.IsArray)
                    {
                        List<string> tempvs = new List<string>();
                        var item = properties[key];
                        // Get all properties on the object
                        var properties2 = item.GetType().GetProperties()
                            .Where(x => x.CanRead)
                            .Where(x => x.GetValue(item, null) != null)
                            .ToDictionary(x => x.Name, x => x.GetValue(item, null));

                        foreach (var kkey in properties2)
                        {
                            var valueType2 = kkey.GetType();
                            var valueElemType2 = valueType2.IsGenericType
                                                    ? valueType2.GetGenericArguments()[0]
                                                    : valueType2.GetElementType();

                            if (valueElemType2.IsPrimitive || valueElemType2 == typeof(string))
                            {
                                tempvs.Add(HttpUtility.UrlEncode(key + "[" + kkey.Key + "]") + "=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(kkey.Value.ToString()));
                            }
                        }

                        properties.Remove(key);
                        properties.Add(string.Join("&", tempvs), string.Empty);
                        tempvs.Clear();
                        tempvs = null;
                    }
                    else if (isAnonym && valueType.IsArray)
                    {
                        int i = 0;
                        List<string> tempvs = new List<string>();
                        foreach (var item in enumerable)
                        {
                            // Get all properties on the object
                            var properties2 = item.GetType().GetProperties()
                                .Where(x => x.CanRead)
                                .Where(x => x.GetValue(item, null) != null)
                                .ToDictionary(x => x.Name, x => x.GetValue(item, null));

                            foreach (var kkey in properties2)
                            {
                                var valueType2 = kkey.GetType();
                                var valueElemType2 = valueType2.IsGenericType
                                                        ? valueType2.GetGenericArguments()[0]
                                                        : valueType2.GetElementType();

                                if (valueElemType2.IsPrimitive || valueElemType2 == typeof(string))
                                {
                                    tempvs.Add(HttpUtility.UrlEncode(key + "[" + i + "][" + kkey.Key + "]") + "=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(kkey.Value.ToString()));
                                }
                            }
                            i++;
                        }
                        properties.Remove(key);
                        properties.Add(string.Join("&", tempvs), string.Empty);
                        tempvs.Clear();
                        tempvs = null;
                    }
                    else
                    {
                        properties[key] = string.Join(separator, enumerable.Cast<object>());
                    }
                }
            }

            // Concat all key/value pairs into a string separated by ampersand and remove trailing '='
            string res = string.Join("&", properties
                .Select(x => string.Concat(
                    string.IsNullOrEmpty(x.Value.ToString()) ? x.Key : HttpUtility.UrlEncode(x.Key), "=",
                    HttpUtility.UrlEncode(x.Value.ToString())).TrimEnd('='))).TrimEnd('=');

            return res;
        }


Also, it has to do URL encoding to get properly formatted data for form submission style and os we finally could get something like that:

order%5Bphone%5D=%2B+44+%28733%29+55-22-33& order%5Bname%5D=%D0%98%D0%BC%D1%8F+%D0%BF%D0%BE%D0%BB%D1%83% D1%87%D0%B0%D1%82%D0%B5%D0%BB%D1%8F& order%5BdeliveryCost%5D=50&order%5BdeliveryStockCode%5D=39931b80-e1c2-11e3-8c4a-0050568002cf& order%5Bcomment%5D=test+api&orderItems%5B0%5D%5BitemID%5D=194559-0&orderItems%5B0%5D%5BsalePrice%5D=9500&orderItems%5B0%5D%5Bcount%5D=2& orderItems%5B1%5D%5BitemID%5D=071402-0&orderItems%5B1%5D%5BsalePrice%5D=750&orderItems%5B1%5D%5Bcount%5D=5&key=777777777777777

C#.NET and Cross-Platform application

Today I'm going to share my experience with c#.net and cross-platform desktop application.

I did write a simple and small windows desktop application under Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition and was wondering if I could run it on Linux Ubuntu and Mac.

The application was just one form and a few combo boxes and buttons app and used Newtonsoft.JSON and web communication. So nothing platform-dependent (except windows forms and controls itself ;) ) and I was almost sure it should work on linux and mac.




First thing I did remember was Mono: https://www.mono-project.com/ and another thing was Gtk#.

I did start with Gtk# and did play a few hours with it. Then I just ported my code to the standard Windows Form Application project and framework .NET Framework 7 just to find out how it would go :)


So I started trying it on Ubuntu. To run simple Windows Forms EXE application on Ubuntu you need mono:

sudo apt-get --assume-yes install mono-runtime

Now I tried to run my exe:

mono MyApp.exe

And I got the following error:

Could not load signature of System.Windows.Forms.Control:GetAccessibilityObjectById due to: Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies. assembly:Accessibility, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a type:<unknown type> member:<none>
Unhandled Exception:
System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type 'MyApp.Form1' from assembly 'MyApp, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'.

"Hmm, what does it mean?" As mono should already have all this System.*.dll and Microsoft.*.dll libraries I just deleted everything except EXE and Newtonsoft.Json.dll and tried one more time and I got another exception:

Unhandled Exception:
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies.
File name: 'System.Windows.Forms, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'
I did google a little bit and found some posts about mono and that mono-complete had much more libraries needed to run .Net.
So I installed mono-complete:

sudo apt-get --assume-yes install mono-complete
And tried to run my EXE and what do you think? Sure - not so easy ;), here is another exception I got:

Unhandled Exception:
System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'System.Windows.Forms.XplatUI' threw an exception. ---> System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'System.Windows.Forms.X11DesktopColors' threw an exception. ---> System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'System.Console' threw an exception. ---> System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'System.ConsoleDriver' threw an exception. ---> System.Exception: Magic number is wrong: 542

"God! What are you even talking about?" - I did google a little bit more and decided to try one suggestion about some additional libraries that might be required to run .NET application, here you are:

sudo apt-get --assume-yes install libappindicator0.1-cil-dev
sudo apt-get --assume-yes install libgtk2.0-cil
sudo apt-get --assume-yes install libmono-posix4.0-cil

some of the libraries were already installed but just in case I write them here anyway.

"Lets run" I thought and tried again. "Wow! It works". Cool!

Sometime it gave me a error even my application ran successfully, something like:

Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

so I did find out that it required one more library:

sudo apt-get install libcanberra-gtk-module libcanberra-gtk3-module


Finally I came to the following - you need to install some libraries and mono itself firstly:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get --assume-yes install mono-runtime
sudo apt-get --assume-yes install mono-complete

sudo apt --assume-yes install libappindicator0.1-cil-dev
sudo apt --assume-yes install libgtk2.0-cil
sudo apt --assume-yes install libmono-posix4.0-cil

After that I was able to run my EXE application from command line (make sure your Terminal is pointed to the EXE folder) like that:

mono MyApp.EXE


And I was really impressed when it brought up windows form with buttons combos etc.

Even more it did communicate good via internet and JSON was working as well :) 

and this is for EXE compiled for .Net Framework 7





Then I did start trying similar things on Mac mini with Mac OS X 10.13 but unfortunately with no luck :(

I did try a few cases and was trying to resolve some issues, missed libraries, etc but unfortunately 

I came up to that that it gave just exception stack trace with errors :(


Not sure if I will continue trying to find out a way to run it under Mac but I any success I will let you know ASAP ;)


Thank you

Get stack trace of frozen processes especially for asp.net application pools

There are so many times you need to get a place where your frozen process stuck aren't?

Especially if this is a production server or remote environment. So what to do?


I have faced this problem myself and created a small tool that gets stack trace from process by its name.

We will need the following instruments:

- Microsoft.Diagnostics.Runtime.dll

- System.Management.dll


And some code to find a process and get its stack trace.

        private string CatchStacktrace(string domainName)
        {
            int pid = -1;
            var procs = System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcessesByName("w3wp");

            var proc = procs.FirstOrDefault(p => GetProcessOwner(p.Id).StartsWith(domainName));
            if (proc == null)
                return string.Format("User Name not found: {0}", domainName);

            pid = proc.Id;

            if (pid < 1)
                return string.Format("Process w3wp.exe not found: {0}", domainName);

            StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
            sb.AppendLine(domainName);
            sb.AppendLine(string.Empty);

            using (var tdata = DataTarget.AttachToProcess(pid, 3000))
            {
                // Dump CLR info

As you know asp.net applications all have w3wp process name and run under its own user name usually with the same name as website name. So to find w3wp process we will pass its username like "ok.unsode.com" to the CatchStacktrace method.

If appropriate w3wp process has been found then you will get something like that:



ok.unsode.com

Blockchain, Bitcoin and C#

Do you need to work with blockchain and bitcoin?

There is a library or even two of them to help you. NBitcoin and QBitNinja will help you.


If you need to track your address for income transactions, for example to check if anyone has paid you for your service or goods.

First thing you need to install those NuGet packages.

Then you need your private key hex bytes and when you get it all then just a few lines of code will provide you with all data you need:


Key key = new Key(new byte[] { /*your private key hex bytes*/ });
var addr = key.PubKey.Hash.GetAddress(Network.Main);
var client = new QBitNinjaClient(Network.Main);
var rbalance = client.GetBalance(addr, true).Result;


After that the rblanace will contain Operations property that will list all operations for your address.

Just go over all items in the rbalance.Operations and find everything you need to confirm or decline your user operation.


Thank you

Drive C, Free space and Intel Driver Update Utility

Hello there,


Have not posted new articles for a long time and this is the next useful post about Drive C:, Free Space and Intel Driver Update Utility.


I was trying to free a little bit more space on my 128GB drive C: because of almost all space had been etan and 5GB left.

As always I started from the Windows folder and my impression was that it occupied 25GB from 128GB only!

Huh! Interesting. I had started digging dipper and found that ProgramData->Intel folder occupied 35GB!!! 

35GB!!! for what?


Actually I figured out that Intel Driver Update Utility stored some data files there with no really useful reason.


So the solution is to Uninstall this Intel Driver Update Utility and it automatically frees the space.

(or you can just delete the .etl files)


Here you are - free 35GB of space on drive C: :)


Not only Windows likes eating  ;)


Have a good day!
