Visual Studio DataSets and DataSources

Visual Studio DataSets and DataSources

Visual Studio DataSets and DataSources

I can get VS2005 to work with my local copy of the database, but when I try to add a data source in VS2005 that is on the server it always bombs because of a failure in some stored procedure.

This is so maddening I'm ready to uninstall VS2005 and reinstall it. I just want to bind a table to my GridView.

If this can be done in code that would be better, I'm able to get a dataReader working with code, but for some reason I can't figure out how to use a programmatically created adapter with a GridView.

RE: Visual Studio DataSets and DataSources

This code works for me for getting data into the GridView:


        Dim dbConn As New PsqlConnection("ServerDSN=DEMODATA")
        Dim dbAdapter As New PsqlDataAdapter("select * FROM class", dbConn)
        Dim dataSet As New DataSet("MyDataSet")
        dbAdapter.Fill(dataSet, "class")
        DataGridView1.AutoGenerateColumns = True
        DataGridView1.DataMember = "class"
        DataGridView1.DataSource = dataSet

RE: Visual Studio DataSets and DataSources

I forgot to mention that I need a binding source in the mix so that I can do filtering. This is what I finally got to work:

        Dim strCommand As String = "select Name, Id, Addr1, Addr2, City, State, Zip, UPin, Phone, PinNum, RefUPIN from Servloc"
        Dim strConnect As String = "Server=;ServerDSN=live global data;Connection Timeout=150;Persist Security Info=True;Pooling=False;User ID=mike"
        Dim dbConn As New PsqlConnection(strConnect)
        Dim dbAdapter As New PsqlDataAdapter()
        dbAdapter.SelectCommand = New PsqlCommand(strCommand, dbConn)
        Dim dataSet As New DataSet("MyDataSet")
        dbAdapter.Fill(dataSet, "TableTest")
        m_bindSrc = New BindingSource()
        m_bindSrc.DataSource = dataSet.Tables(0)
        DataGridView1.DataSource = m_bindSrc
        DataGridView1.Sort(DataGridView1.Columns(0), Ascending)
