Create Database Connection Using ADO.NET

Hello everyone, in this article I will share with you about creating a connection database using ADO.Net. Let's follow the steps below.

Step 1

First, you have to prepare database and tables. In this practice, I use database SQL Server. The database name is "dbAdmSekolah", and I have table, one of which is named "tbl_Agama".

Step 2

Second, create a new project in Visual Studio. Then, create UI design like below.

Step 3

Next, create connection to database SQL Server. You can open Server Explore tab --> right click on Data Connections --> and choose Add Connection. Fill on Server Name and select a database name --> then click OK button

Step 4

Back to Form Agama UI design, now you can right click and choose View Code or you can click F7 button on the keyboard.

Step 5

Declare string connection

public partial class Form_Agama: Form {
    //deklarasi koneksi string
    private string conStr = "Data Source=(local); " + "Initial Catalog=dbAdmSekolah; Integrated Security=True";
    private SqlConnection conn;
    public Form_Agama() {
        InitializeComponent();
        conn = new SqlConnection(conStr);
    }
}

Step 6

And then create TampilDataAgama method like below.

private void tampilDataAgama() {
    conn.Open();
    SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();
    cmd.Connection = conn;
    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
    cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM tbl_Agama";
    DataSet ds = new DataSet();
    SqlDataAdapter sda = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);
    sda.Fill(ds, "tbl_Agama");
    dgAgama.DataSource = ds;
    dgAgama.DataMember = "tbl_Agama";
    conn.Close();
}

Step 7

Then call the method on the main form

private void Form_Agama_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    tampilDataAgama();
}

Step 8

Click on Start to show the result.

Step 9

Finished
