  • You're not saying what is going wrong and I don't see any wrong with your code.  If I'd hazard a guess, your "frmsel" pops up but doesn't show anything.  That's because it doesn't know anything about "rs".  Add a public method to frmsel that takes a SqlDataReader as an argument so that you can populate the controls in the form with the data.  Something like this:
      dim reader as SqlDataReader
      reader = rs.ExecuteReader
      if frmsel.DisplayData(reader) then me.hide()
    and in frmsel:
      public function DisplayData(rs as SqlDataReader) as boolean
        if not rs.hasrows then return false
        txtUser = rs.Item("User").ToString()
        txtPass = rs.Item("Password").ToString()
        return true
      end sub
    I didn't try it myself, please excuse any typos...

  • hi,

    your code is ok, but you just opened the connection without doing anything

    you didn't use any adapter in your code , nor datareader to read from your database

    hope this helps

    What you need to take into consideration is the return value of ExecuteReader() method

    Dim dr as SqlDataReader = rs.ExecuteReader(strsql)

    This will give you the data reader that you can use Read() method on to make it point to the next row in the resultset. When it returns false there is no more rows.

    When you call Read() it will contain a row of  data and columns can be retrieved via the IDataRecord interface as it implements it on the SqlDataReader class
