In my seminars I always show how to fetch data from an SQL Server database to some UI controls (usually a GridView control). I use the connected data access model,I use the disconnected data access model (datasets) and obviously I provide samples that leverage LINQ to SQL and Entity Framework. Sometimes I get asked how to search through the results that are bound to a GridView control.
In this post I will be continuing my series of posts regarding data access methodologies/technologies that as I call them are pro ORM. I will be demonstrating how to use the connected and the disconnected data access models to retrieve,insert,update,delete data from a database.This is going to be a huge post so embrace yourself.Our database will be an SQL Server database.I am urging you to read this post and this post of mine that are also in this blog.These posts explore the disconnected and connected model and the basic objects(classes) we use to retrieve data.
This is the second post in a series of posts regarding to ADO.Net 2.0. Have a look at the first post if you like.
