How to call Stored Procedures with EntityFramework?

c# entity-framework mysql stored-procedures


I have generated an EF4 Model from a MySQL database and I have included both StoredProcedures and Tables.

I know how to make regular instert/update/fetch/delete operations against the EF but I can't find my StoredProcedures.

This was what I was hoping for:

using (Entities context = new Entities())

Edit 1:

This is how it looked without EF:

sqlStr = "CALL updateGame(?,?,?,?,?,?,?)";

commandObj = new OdbcCommand(sqlStr, mainConnection);
commandObj.Parameters.Add("@id,", OdbcType.Int).Value =;
commandObj.Parameters.Add("@name", OdbcType.VarChar, 255).Value =;
commandObj.Parameters.Add("@description", OdbcType.Text).Value = ""; //inGame.description;
commandObj.Parameters.Add("@yearPublished", OdbcType.DateTime).Value = inGame.yearPublished;
commandObj.Parameters.Add("@minPlayers", OdbcType.Int).Value = inGame.minPlayers;
commandObj.Parameters.Add("@maxPlayers", OdbcType.Int).Value = inGame.maxPlayers;
commandObj.Parameters.Add("@playingTime", OdbcType.VarChar, 127).Value = inGame.playingTime;    

return Convert.ToInt32(executeScaler(commandObj));

PS. I can change EF version if needed

Edit 1:

CREATE DEFINER=`106228`@`%` PROCEDURE `updateGame`(
    inId INT,
    inName VARCHAR(255),
    inDescription TEXT,
    inYearPublished DATETIME,
    inMinPlayers INT,
    inMaxPlayers INT,
    inPlayingTime VARCHAR(127)

One way is to use the Database property off the DbContext:

SqlParameter param1 = new SqlParameter("@firstName", "Frank");
SqlParameter  param2 = new SqlParameter("@lastName", "Borland");
context.Database.ExecuteSqlCommand("sp_MyStoredProc @firstName, @lastName", 
                              param1, param2);

EF5 definitely supports that.
