Displaying SharePoint Data in a Visual Web Part RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All

    I have been creating very simple Visual Web Parts in Visual Studio 2010 & 2012 for a few months now, connecting to and retrieving and displaying data from an external database. However, I'd like to move my knowledge on by displaying data from SharePoint lists.

    I have been searching the internet but can't find examples of how to display data from a SharePoint list and how to query a SharePoint list for specific data. The only examples that I have found involve connecting to an external database which I have done, plus one other example which uses LINQ to query a SharePoint list -- I don't feel ready to use LINQ yet and was hoping there's another way.

    I would be extremely grateful for any tips, advice or examples you may have come across that you think would be useful.

    Many thanks
