Hey Chintoo!

In EF code-first this is done by data annotations. Make sure you recreate your table (or database) after changing the scheme.

public class Sample




    [Column(Order = 0)]

    [DatabaseGenerated(DatabaseGeneratedOption.Identity)] //auto increment id

    public int Id { get; set; }


    public string Name { get; set; }


    public int Dept { get; set; }


You don't need to pass an integer for Id. EF will resolve this automatically. Just create the object by filling in the name and the dept. By saving the changes to the database, EF will automatically fill in the auto generated Id.
