How can I create a database in SQL Server by code first entity framework 6? ef-code-first entity-framework sql-server


I have an ASP.NET MVC project in VS 2012. I want to use Entity Framework 6 code-first. When I create model and db-context file and when I run my project it does not create any database in my SQK Server. I want to know what is wrong?

I want to know how can I create database by code first in my SQL Server not in SQL Server Express or Compact. How can I create it? I try scaffolding too but it dos not work true and does not create any database. Any tips or trick would be welcome

This is my web.config setting :

   <add name="dbRaja" 
        connectionString="Data Source=hp-PC;Initial Catalog=Raja;User ID=sa;Password=123;MultipleActiveResultSets=True;Trusted_Connection=False;Persist Security Info=True"
        providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

and its my datacontext :

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Data.Entity;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;

namespace Raja1.Models
    public class dbRaja : DbContext
        // You can add custom code to this file. Changes will not be overwritten.
        // If you want Entity Framework to drop and regenerate your database
        // automatically whenever you change your model schema, add the following
        // code to the Application_Start method in your Global.asax file.
        // Note: this will destroy and re-create your database with every model change.
        // System.Data.Entity.Database.SetInitializer(new System.Data.Entity.DropCreateDatabaseIfModelChanges<Raja1.Models.Raja1Context>());

        public DbSet<Raja1.Models.Spareparts> Spareparts { get; set; }

You need to tell your DbContext to use the intended connection string. It will default to one named the same as your application (i.e. "Raja1"), whereas your connection string is named "dbRaja".

public class MyContext : DbContext
    public MyContext : base("name=dbRaja")
