To add a Data Bind call

  1. Use the Object Inspector drop-down to select the WebForm (WebForm1 is the default).
  2. In Object Inspector, select the Events tab.
  3. Set the Load event to Page_Load.
  4. In Object Inspector, double-click Page_Load.

The code-behind designer appears, cursor in place between event handler brackets.

  1. Code the DataBind call:
  2. dataGrid1.DataBind();

Note: If you are using data aware controls, for instance from a third-party provider, you may not need to code the DataBind call.

The application compiles and the HTTP server displays a Web Form with the datagrid.

While presenting a minimum number of steps required to build a database project, the preceding procedure demonstrates the major components of the ASP.NET, ADO.NET, and BDP.NET architectures at work, including: providers, datasets, and adapters. The adapter connects to the physical data source via a provider, sending a command that will read data from the data source and populate a dataset. Once populated, a datagrid displays data from the dataset.

Once created, use other BDP.NET designers to modify and maintain the components of your project.
