How to bind CheckBoxList using SqlDataSource in ASP.NET


The SqlDataSource control is a DataSource control that allows a server control, Such as the GridView control, to access Data located in a relational database, such as Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle.
This control also generates a connection string to interact with data in an ASP.NET page. These connection strings are generated through the Configure Data Source wizard. A Connection String contains informattion about the server, database , and security you are working with in your application , for example
Data Source= .\SqlExpress; Initial Catalog =Database name ; Integrated Security = True
The SqlDataSource control automatically opens a database connection , which is provided in the connection string, executes the SQL queries , and then close the connection. When you add a SqlDataSource control to an ASP.NET page , the following code appears in the HTML code of the page.

<asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server"> </asp:SqlDataSource>


You can use a CheckBoxList control to display a number of check boxes at once as a column of check boxes . The CheckBoxList control exists within the System.Web.UI.WebControls namespace. This control is often useful when you want to bind the data from a data source to checkboxes . The CheckBoxList control creates multiselection checkbox groups at runtime by binding these control to a data source.

Lets take an example for binding CheckBoxList using SqlDataSource
Step-1: Drop CheckBoxList control to design window 
Step-2: Choose DataSource from showSmart tag ..... 
Step-3:  Same as GridView Binding

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 …
