Updating records using a Repository Pattern with Entity Framework 6

Accepted Answer

Update should appear as follows: (Adding to Dan Beaulieu's response)

[HttpPost]
[ValidateAntiForgeryToken]
[ValidateInput(false)]
public ActionResult Edit([Bind(Include = "Id,Title,IntroText,Body,Modified,Author")] Post post)
{
    using (UnitOfWork uwork = new UnitOfWork())
    {
        post.Modified = DateTime.Now;
        uwork.PostRepository.Update(post);

        uwork.Commit();

        return RedirectToAction("Index");
    }
}

RepositoryPattern appears as follows:

public class BlogEngineRepository<T> : IRepository<T> where T : class
{
  public BlogEngineRepository(DbContext dataContext)
  {
    DbSet = dataContext.Set<T>();
    Context = dataContext;
  }

  public T Update(T entity)
  {
     DbSet.Attach(entity);
     var entry = Context.Entry(entity);
     entry.State = System.Data.EntityState.Modified;
  }
}

I've got it figured out now. Because of One is not necessary., new repository patterns (Entity Framework 6) do not have a Update function. Simply get the record you want using its ID, make your changes, and then commit or save.

As an example, here is my postController's edit POST method:

[HttpPost]
[ValidateAntiForgeryToken]
[ValidateInput(false)]
public ActionResult Edit([Bind(Include = "Id,Title,IntroText,Body,Modified,Author")] Post post)
{
    using (UnitOfWork uwork = new UnitOfWork())
    {
        Post edit = uwork.PostRepository.GetById(post.Id);
        edit.Title = post.Title;
        edit.IntroText = post.IntroText;
        edit.Body = post.Body;
        edit.Modified = DateTime.Now;

        uwork.Commit();

        return RedirectToAction("Index");
    }
}

RepositoryPattern appears as follows:

public class BlogEngineRepository<T> : IRepository<T> where T : class
{
    protected DbSet<T> DbSet;

    public BlogEngineRepository(DbContext dataContext)
    {
        DbSet = dataContext.Set<T>();
    } 

    public void Insert(T entity)
    {
        DbSet.Add(entity);
    }

    public void Delete(T entity)
    {
        DbSet.Remove(entity); 
    }

    public IQueryable<T> SearchFor(Expression<Func<T, bool>> predicate)
    {
        return DbSet.Where(predicate);
    }

    public IQueryable<T> GetAll()
    {
        return DbSet;
    }

    public T GetById(int id)
    {
        return DbSet.Find(id);
    } 
}
