Question

I'm using EF6 code first to create my db. Everything was working well last night, now when i run update-database command, I get the following exception:

PM> update-database
Specify the '-Verbose' flag to view the SQL statements being applied to the target database.
System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null.

Here is the Context Class

public class WheelTrackDb : DbContext
{
    public WheelTrackDb(): base("DefaultConnection"){ }

    protected override void OnModelCreating(DbModelBuilder modelBuilder)
    {
        modelBuilder.Entity<Driver>()
            .HasRequired(d => d.Vehicle)
            .WithOptional(v => v.Driver)
            .Map(m => m.MapKey("VehicleId"));

        modelBuilder.Entity<TransactionLog>()
           .HasRequired(t => t.Acceptor)
           .WithMany()
           .HasForeignKey(t => t.AcceptorId)
           .WillCascadeOnDelete(false);

        modelBuilder.Entity<TransactionLog>()
           .HasRequired(t => t.Donor)
           .WithMany()
           .HasForeignKey(t => t.DonorId)
           .WillCascadeOnDelete(false);

        modelBuilder.Entity<Violation>()
            .HasRequired(v => v.GSMDeviceLog)
            .WithMany(g => g.Violations)
            .HasForeignKey(v => v.GSMDeviceLogId);

        modelBuilder.Entity<RouteFence>().Ignore(r => r.PolygonVertices);

        modelBuilder.Entity<Vehicle>()
            .HasRequired(v => v.License)
            .WithRequiredPrincipal();

        modelBuilder.Entity<MessageCounter>()
            .HasRequired(m => m.License)
            .WithOptional(l => l.MessageCounter)
            .Map(m => m.MapKey("LicenseId"));

        modelBuilder.Entity<GSMDeviceLog>()
            .HasRequired(g => g.Vehicle)
            .WithMany(t => t.GsmDeviceLogs);

    }

    public DbSet<UserInfo> UserInfos{ get; set; }
    public DbSet<TransactionLog> TransactionLogs{ get; set; }
    public DbSet<Driver> Drivers { get; set; }
    public DbSet<Vehicle> Vehicles{ get; set; }
    public DbSet<VehicleGroup> VehicleGroups { get; set; }
    public DbSet<License> Licenses { get; set; }
    public DbSet<Policy> Policys { get; set; }
    public DbSet<GSMDeviceLog> GSMDeviceLogs { get; set; }
    public DbSet<MessageCounter> MessageCounters { get; set; }
    public DbSet<Violation> Violations { get; set; }
    public DbSet<OwnershipPaper> OwnershipPapers { get; set; }
    public DbSet<Subscriber> Subscribers { get; set; }
}

And here is the Configuration:

internal sealed class Configuration : DbMigrationsConfiguration<WheelTrack.Models.WheelTrackDb>
{
    public Configuration()
    {
        AutomaticMigrationsEnabled = true;
    }


    protected override void Seed(WheelTrack.Models.WheelTrackDb context)
    {

    }
}

I've searched internet and found that I should only have properties in my context class. And I checked thrice, it only has dbset properties. I'm unable to figure out what has happened. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Accepted Answer

Found the problem. Actually I had a HttpPosetedFileBase property in the UserInfo model which the EF could not bind to the database column.

Putting a not mapped attribute over it made it work.

    [NotMapped]
    public HttpPostedFileBase Photo { get; set; }

So, for others who get this issue make sure two things:

  1. Your context should always contain DbSets properties. Example -

    public DbSet<Policy> Policies { get; set; }

  2. There should not be a type in your model classes that EF cannot bind to a database column.

Hope it helps.
