Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

    This ones easy enough. You just need to add a SQL data reader to read the rows from your query

    Make sure you have imported the System.Data.SqlClient namespace

    Code:
    // Create a new SQL connection - you can store this in the app.config in the connectionStrings node under appsettings and use ConfigurationManager to retrieve it if needs be. Just remember to add the reference to System.Configuration
    SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("server=localhost;uid=username;password=password");
    // Create a new SQL command to select the data using the new connection
                SqlCommand com = new SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM myTable", conn);
    // Create a SQL data reader var which will hold the result of the query
                SqlDataReader dr;
    // Open the connection
                conn.Open();
    // Execute the command into the datareader object
                dr = com.ExecuteReader();
    // Use a while loop to loop through any data rows
                while(dr.Read) {
                    // Get the ordinal for the column called 'ColumnName' and pass this to the GetString method (assuming you know what datatypes to expect from the column/columns) - add this value to the combobox
                    comboBox1.Items.Add(dr.GetString(dr.GetOrdinal("ColumnName")));
                }
    // Close the connection
                conn.Close();
    I may be wrong with the combobox syntax as I just plucked this code out of my head, but apart from that it should work.
    MS Paint FTW!
