Bind GridView in ASP.NET


Grid view is a Data Source Control. Which represents the Data in form of a Table. Its architecture like a table. It have multiple rows and columns. Diagrammatic representations of Grid View shown below:
GridView in ASP.NET

This table have 5 rows and 3 columns.

How to Bind Grid View using Programming

 Before Bind Database table with Grid view, must connect with Database engine. DOTNET provides a Namespace, such as System.Data.SqlClient, which connects front-end to back-end. This Namespace contains multiple classes such as SqlConnection, SqlCommand and etc.
Front-end can connect with back-end using SqlConnection class. First of all, we create an object for it.
We can access the Data member and member function of class with the help of that object. such as


using System. Data. SqlClient;

// Create an instance of SqlConnection class
SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection( );

// Access connection string using con instance.

con. ConnectionString = " Connection String Parameter ";

// Initialize connection string with database parameter

Some ConnectionString parameters which passes inside the ConnectionString. like
Data Source : Server Name;
Database Name : Name of your Database;
User-name : Database user name;
Password :  Password of your Database

For example

connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True"

Now, open the state of connection. Because state of connection close by default. So call open method from instance of SqlConnection class, such as );

After making connection, you can access or delete data from Database table. CommandText property of SqlCommand class provide interface with Database table. You can access this property by instance of SqlCommand class, such as


SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand( );
cmd. CommandText = " Select * from [Table-name]";

This Query retrieves whole table of database. If you want to access particular column from table, must include column name inside the query. Like

cmd. CommandText = "Select column-name from [Table-name]";


Now, Connect SqlCommand class with Connection object using connection property of SqlCommand class.
cmd. Connection = con;


After fetching the data from database table, Read must from SqlDataReader class, which is inside in System.Data.SqlClient Namespace. Like

SqlDataReader rd= cmd. ExecuteReader( );


Bind GridView with DataReader. like

Gridview1. DataSource = rd;
Gridview1. DataBind( );

Complete Source code of Design pattern 

 <form id="form1" runat="server">


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




Complete Business logic

using System.Data.SqlClient;

public partial class Default5 : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection();
        con.ConnectionString = @"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\Database.mdf;Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True";
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();
        cmd.CommandText = "select * from [usertable]";
        cmd.Connection = con;
        SqlDataReader rd = cmd.ExecuteReader();
        GridView1.DataSource = rd;

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 …
