How to Bind DataGridView with DataSet in Windows Forms: ADO.NET

In our previous post, I have described about the ways to bind datagridview in windows forms. The first way is to bind the datagridview with dataset and show the data of a table in the gridview. Here is the syntax of binding in c#:
dataGridView.DataSource= ”DataSet Name”;
dataGridView.DataMember=”Table Name”;

Now the time is to perform this code with our existing dataset and table. Drag-n-drop a datagridview on the window and write the following c# code in our form’s constructor:
SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection();
connection.ConnectionString = "Data Source=(LocalDb)\\v11.0; Initial Catalog=StockDb; Integrated Security=True";

SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("select * from Groups", connection);

DataSet ds = new DataSet();
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(command);

dataGridView1.DataSource = ds;
dataGridView1.DataMember = ds.Tables[0].ToString();

In the above code, first four lines are same as written in executing sql statements. Fifth line will create a new object of DataSet. Six line will create an object of SqlDataAdapter class which will create an adapter with specified command object.

Next line tell us to fill the dataset with the adapter, which contains all the rows returning by the command object.

Now the last two lines are used to specify the data source of datagridview and the table which will be bind to. When we run the code a window will show with a datagridview containing all the returning rows as shown in following image:

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 …
