And this is the controller :

// GET: Employees/Details/5
        public ActionResult Details(int? id)
        {
            if (id == null)
            {
                return new HttpStatusCodeResult(HttpStatusCode.BadRequest);
            }
            Employee employee = db.Employees.Find(id);
            if (employee == null)
            {
                return HttpNotFound();
            }
            return View(employee);
        }



This is the Employee class and CUSTOMER CLASS AND ORDER CLASS :

So , I have three tables of Northwind database , Employee(employeeID) 1-* Order(Orderid,customerid,employeeid)*-1 Customer(customerID) . So it is a many to many relationship ,1 Employee has many Orders and 1 customer have many orders , so it is 1* *1 relationship , with an order table in the middle. The details view lists all the details info about a particular employee based on ID in the url , and under that it shows a table of ALL ITS CUSTOMERS . So , since the employee class dont have direct relation with customer class , it is a a many to many relationship in between : Employee has many Order and Customer has many Order . So how do i extract and display in a view all distinct customers of every employee.Im using Entity framework , and my entities are like this :

C#
namespace Northwind.Controllers
{
    public class EmployeesController : Controller
    {
        private dbNorthwindEntities db = new dbNorthwindEntities();


What I have tried:

I tried this :

@foreach (var item in Model.Orders)
    {
        <tr>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.CustomerID)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.Customer.ContactName)
            </td>
            <td>
                @Html.DisplayFor(modelItem => item.OrderID)
            </td>



It works , but it loads very slow and a want another way of doing it.

Where is the code that actually reads the data from the database?
ddgjgj 26-May-17 4:41am
   
namespace Northwind.Controllers
{
public class EmployeesController : Controller
{
private dbNorthwindEntities db = new dbNorthwindEntities();

// GET: Employees
public ActionResult Index()
{
var employees = db.Employees;
// var employees = db.Employees.Include(e => e.Employee1).Include(e => e.Employees1);
// var employees = db.Employees.Include(e => e.Employees1);

// var employees = db.Employees.Include(e => e.Employee1);

return View(employees.ToList());
}



// GET: Employees/Details/5
public ActionResult Details(int? id)
{
if (id == null)
{
return new HttpStatusCodeResult(HttpStatusCode.BadRequest);
}
Employee employee = db.Employees.Find(id);
if (employee == null)
{
return HttpNotFound();
}
return View(employee);
}

at the Employee class , delete this
this.Customers = new HashSet<customer>(); and this
public virtual ICollection<customer> Customers { get; set; } , because these dont exist , i just added this for test , but its not right this way. And also at customer class delete these :
public int EmployeeID { get; set; } and
public virtual Employee Employee { get; set; } , they dont exist in database too.

is it ok:

Employee employee = db.Employees.Include(player => player.Orders).Where(i => i.EmployeeID == id).SingleOrDefault();
