Best Practice Windows App Development - Handwrite Code or Drop objects from Toolbox on Screen?
Posted on 2004-08-25
I am trying to create dataadpaters by writing the code rather than dropping the objects on my form... (avoid generating ALL the sql statements and code behind the scenes when I only want a select statement)
How come these don't now appear in the DataSource Property drop down list in the ComboBox? It also doesn't appear with the other Adapters that I created by dropping on the form.
What's the story here? Are we supposed to use these drag and drop facilities or is it better to 'handwrite' the code as suggested by my trainer in my ADO.Net course last week.
I'm trying to know what the 'best practice' is for creating a Windows Application.
THanks for your advice,
