                SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEE              
  • Now in web.config file add the connectionstring under <configuration> tag :
    <add name="EmpCon" connectionString="Data Source=LocalServer;Initial Catalog=MyDataBase;Integrated Security=True"/>

  • Add a GridView control in design page of your website under <BODY> tag
<fieldset style="width:230px;">
            <legend>Gridview Binding Example</legend>
            <asp:GridView ID="EmpGridView" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False" CellPadding="4" ForeColor="#333333" GridLines="None">    
         <AlternatingRowStyle BackColor="White" />
        <asp:BoundField DataField="EMP_NAME"  HeaderText="Name" />
        <asp:BoundField DataField="DEPT"  HeaderText="Department" />
        <asp:BoundField DataField="SALARY"  HeaderText="Salary" />  
         <EditRowStyle BackColor="#2461BF" />
         <FooterStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
         <HeaderStyle BackColor="#507CD1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="White" />
         <PagerStyle BackColor="#2461BF" ForeColor="White" HorizontalAlign="Center" />
         <RowStyle BackColor="#EFF3FB" />
         <SelectedRowStyle BackColor="#D1DDF1" Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#333333" />
         <SortedAscendingCellStyle BackColor="#F5F7FB" />

         <SortedDescendingCellStyle BackColor="#E9EBEF" />
         <SortedDescendingHeaderStyle BackColor="#4870BE" />
