How to bind C# Gridview using ADO.NET

The C# GridView Control
The C# GridView control is a Data bound control that displays the values of a data source in the form of a table . In this table , each column represents a field and each row represents a record . The C# GridView control exists within the System.Web.UI.Controls namespace . When you drag and drop the GridView control on the designer page , the following syntax is added to the source view of the page.

<asp:gridview id="GridView1" runat="server"> </asp:gridview>

ASP.NET reduce lots of code in binding process, provide binding controls such as SqlDataSource for connecting database. The GridView data control has a built-in capability of sorting ,paging , updating and deleting data. You can also set the column fields through the AutoGenerate property to indicate whether bound fields are automatically created for each field in the data source.
In the below mentioned example, step 1 is define for add gridview in the webpage. Now, come to second step create columns in the gridview, which is depend on user choice. Under the <Columns> tag, create TemplateFields, which is used for design first column, according to step 3.

STEP-1 : Drag Gridview from Toolbox and Drop on design window.

    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server">        

STEP-2 : Create columns inside Gidview

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server">
            <Columns >

STEP-3 : Create first column using TemplateField

  <Columns >

STEP-4 : Create ItemTemplate inside <asp:TemplateField>
STEP-5 :  Also bind with table Attribute/Field

    <%# Eval("EmployeeId") %>

Make StoredProcedure for retrieving data from database table.

CREATE PROCEDURE [dbo].[getdata]

SELECT * from [Table]


STEP-7 : Create code for binding data

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Data;
using System.Configuration;

public partial class binggrid : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        if (!Page .IsPostBack)



    private void getdataload()
        using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection())
            con.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ToString();
            using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand())
                cmd.CommandText = "getdata";
                cmd.Connection = con;
                cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                using (DataSet ds = new DataSet())
                    using (SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd))
                        GridView1.DataSource = ds;




Output of the program
C# gridview bind in

Note : Some Extra Column appear in gridview like EmployeeId, name
if you want to remove these column add attribute inside gridview
<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns ="false">

Main Output of the program are:

C# gridview bind in
Here we are using single Template field. If you want to make more column then you must take more than one template field. Each template specifies column of the GridView.

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
