C# WPF datagrid not persisting inserts

+2
−0

I am working with VS 2022 and trying to make a WPF MVVM application. The application updates the items displayed in the datagrid, persisting the changes to the database upon save. However, adding a new record to the grid does not insert (without extra steps). I imagine I am missing something simple.

It seems to me as if since the updates persist from the ObservableCollection to the context without extra coding then the inserts would also.

Code Behind

public partial class TagTagTypeWindow : Window
{
    public TagTagTypeWindow()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
        DataContext = new TagTagTypeViewModel();
    }
}

View Model

namespace PictureWar.ViewModel;

public class TagTagTypeViewModel : ObservableObject
{
    private ObservableCollection<TagType> _tagTypes;
    private readonly TagTypeRepository _repository;

    public TagTagTypeViewModel()
    {
        _repository = new TagTypeRepository();
        _tagTypes = new ObservableCollection<TagType>(_repository.GetAllTagTypes().ToList());
        SaveCommand = new RelayCommand(DoSave);
    }

    public IRelayCommand SaveCommand { get; }

    public ObservableCollection<TagType> TagTypes
    {
        get => _tagTypes;
        set { SetProperty(ref _tagTypes, value); }
    }

    public void DoSave()
    {
        var newTagTypes = TagTypes.Where(tt => tt.ID < 1); //extra step
        _repository.SaveAllTagTypes(newTagTypes);
    }
}

Repository

public class TagTypeRepository
{
    private readonly WarContext _context;

    public TagTypeRepository()
    {
        _context = new WarContext();
    }

    public IEnumerable<TagType> GetAllTagTypes()
    {
        return _context.TagType.Include(tt => tt.Tags);
    }

    public void SaveAllTagTypes(IEnumerable<TagType> newTagTypes)
    {
        _context.TagType.AddRange(newTagTypes); //part of the extra step
        _context.SaveChanges();
    }
}
