How to call Stored Procedure in Entity Framework 6 (Code-First)?

c# entity-framework stored-procedures

Question

I am very new to Entity Framework 6 and I want to implement stored procedures in my project. I have a stored procedure as follows:

ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[insert_department]
    @Name [varchar](100)
AS
BEGIN
    INSERT [dbo].[Departments]([Name])
    VALUES (@Name)

    DECLARE @DeptId int

    SELECT @DeptId = [DeptId]
    FROM [dbo].[Departments]
    WHERE @@ROWCOUNT > 0 AND [DeptId] = SCOPE_IDENTITY()

    SELECT t0.[DeptId]
    FROM [dbo].[Departments] AS t0
    WHERE @@ROWCOUNT > 0 AND t0.[DeptId] = @DeptId
END

Department class:

public class Department
{
    public int DepartmentId { get; set; }       
    public string Name { get; set; }
}

modelBuilder 
.Entity<Department>() 
.MapToStoredProcedures(s => 
s.Update(u => u.HasName("modify_department") 
               .Parameter(b => b.Department, "department_id") 
               .Parameter(b => b.Name, "department_name")) 
 .Delete(d => d.HasName("delete_department") 
               .Parameter(b => b.DepartmentId, "department_id")) 
 .Insert(i => i.HasName("insert_department") 
               .Parameter(b => b.Name, "department_name")));

protected void btnSave_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    string department = txtDepartment.text.trim();

    // here I want to call the stored procedure to insert values
}

My problem is: how can I call the stored procedure and pass parameters into it?

You can call a stored procedure in your DbContext class as follows.

this.Database.SqlQuery<YourEntityType>("storedProcedureName",params);

But if your stored procedure returns multiple result sets as your sample code, then you can see this helpful article on MSDN

Stored Procedures with Multiple Result Sets
