Here is a coding just to insert to a table in sql database,,

Add this ,
using System.Data.SqlClient;

In the button click event type this coding,

string sql = "Server=;DataBase=DataBaseName;Trusted_Connection=Yes;";
SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(sql);
string str = "";
str = "INSERT INTO [TABLENAME]([Title],[LastName],[FirstName],) VALUES ('" +
txtTitle.Text.Trim() + "','" + txtLastName.Text.Trim() + "','" +
txtFirstName.Text.Trim() + "')";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(str, con);

The lifetime of a SqlConnection are as below:

Instantiate the SqlConnection object.
Open the connection.
Perform DB operations.
Close the connection.

Code sample:
using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

class SqlConnectionTest
static void Main()
SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=SSPI");
SqlDataReader rdr = null;

SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select * from Customers", conn);
rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();
while (rdr.Read())
if (rdr != null)
if (conn != null)

Mark as Answer if the answer solves your issue!!!

To connect to SQL Server from C#.NET, you need to create a connection string such as below:

private SqlConnection connection;
private string connectionString =
@"Server=(local);Database=Embedding_SQL_Test;User ID=sa;Password=123";
connection = new SqlConnection( connectionString );

Next, you use the SqlConnection object created above to create a 'SqlCommand', as shown below:
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand( "select * from Customer where CustomerID = @Cid", connection);

The SQL query shown here can be replaced by a SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE queries etc.

Next to execute the SQL queries in the database, you use the following methods:
ExecuteReader - to execute SELECT queries
ExecuteNonQuery - to execute INSERT, DELETE, UPDATE, and SET statements.

This is a very short description of how to connect to SQL Server database from C# and execute SQL queries in the database.
For details about the connection string, the methods and their parameters check the following link: ( http://www.shahriarnk.com/Shahriar-N-K-Research-Embedding-SQL-in-C-Sharp-Java.html )
Here you will also find details about how to pass parameters to the SQL queries as well as calling stored procedures and much more.
