C# Connectivity with MYSQL using ODBC

Posted By:Lakhan Pal Garg       Posted Date: September 11, 2009    Points: 10    Category: ASP.NET Controls    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

First of all Downlaod MyODBC-3.51.06.exe and install.

Now add the following lines of code to connect it to the DataBase.

string sConString = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}; SERVER=localhost;DATABASE=Lakhan; UID=root; PASSWORD=; OPTION=3";
OdbcConnection oConnection = new OdbcConnection(sConString);
string sSQL = "SELECT * FROM tdTest";
OdbcDataAdapter oDataAdapter = new OdbcDataAdapter(sSQL, oConnection);
DataSet oDataSet = new DataSet();

This piece of code will return a DataSet that contains data from tdTest Table.

Good one..Lakhan..

I have seen you have recommended "MyODBC-3.51.06.exe" is it better than native ODBC provider available in .NET Framework?

I have used .NET connector is available for MYSQL and is available for download
