Hi all, (First Post...YEEERROOO)

Quick question for ya all, I have an MySQL server with three databases created on it, lets say test, test_1 and test_2. Is there a way that I can display what ever databases are stored on the server in a combo box?

I want to allow the user to be able to choose which database they want to coneect to. Any help would be cool :)

BTW Im using VB.net on VS2005

PrivateSub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) HandlesMyBase.Load
Dim conn As New ADODB.Connection()
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset()
Dim connStr, sSQL As String
Dim Results, i As Integer
connStr = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Initial Catalog=xxxx;Data Source=x.x.x.x;User ID=sa;Password=xxXXxx;Application name = New_Businessnew"
conn.Open(connStr)
sSQL = "sp_helpdb"
rs = conn.Execute(sSQL, Results)
rs.MoveNext()
Do While Not rs.EOF And Not rs.BOF
cb.Items.Add(rs.Fields("Name").Value)
rs.MoveNext()
Loop
rs.Close()
End Sub

If suppose there is no database at all?what would the poeple of IT would have done?
Is there any remedy

Do you think that databases are really act as the backbone for all programming languages? your comments please
