Hi, I'm new in VB.NET and I'm having trouble with creating a public sqlconnection in a VB Module.
I have declared conn as public sqlconnection but when I use it to the other forms its value is equal to "nothing". I hope you can enlighten me here. thanks in advance.
This is my Module:
Imports System Imports System.Data Imports System.Data.SqlClient Module modSindBad #Region "Variables" Public con As String Public conn As SqlConnection Public cmd As SqlCommand Public da As SqlDataAdapter Public dt As DataTable Public ds As DataSet #End Region Public Sub ServerConnection() Try con = "Data Source=SAMI-HP\SQLSERVER;Initial Catalog=SINDBAD;User ID=sa;Password=Administrator@123" Dim conn = New SqlConnection(con) conn.Open() If conn.State = ConnectionState.Open Then MsgBox("conn open") End If Catch MsgBox("Unexpected Error Occured!" & vbNewLine & "Error Code: " & Err.Number & "Error Description: " & Err.Description & _ "Error Source: " & Err.Source, vbExclamation, "Error Handler") End Try End Sub End Module
And this is my form:
Imports System Imports System.Data Imports System.Data.SqlClient Public Class mdBank Dim dt As DataTable #Region "Form Load" Private Sub mdBank_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load ServerConnection() ReadmdBankInfo() End Sub #End Region #Region "Database Commands" Private Sub ReadmdBankInfo() Dim cmd = New SqlCommand cmd.Connection = conn ''Value = nothing cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM mdBank" Dim dt = New DataTable Dim da = New SqlDataAdapter da.SelectCommand = cmd da.Fill(dt) Me.dgvBank.DataSource = dt Me.dgvBank.Refresh() End Sub #End Region End Class
