Add/Edit/Delete MySQL Rows (in C#)?

I have a lame script that can connect to my database and get all the names, but I can't figure out how to do anything beyond that. I want to be able to add, edit, and delete rows. I know the SQL syntax to do it, but I don't know how to have ASP.Net (C#) do it. The following code will get all the names out of my database and display them. After I add, edit, or delete a row, I want to show the current database. I am thinking I just make this a function and then after the query, I call this function to show the results...is that right? How do I execute the SQL query?

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" %>
<%@ Page Language="C#" Debug="true" %>

<script runat="server">

      protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
      {
            base.OnInit(e);

          string ConnectString =
              ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["connectString"];
          MySqlDataAdapter adapter = new MySqlDataAdapter
             ("select * from Names", ConnectString);
          DataSet ds = new DataSet ();
          adapter.Fill (ds);
          dgrAllNames.DataSource = ds;
          dgrAllNames.DataBind ();
      }
</script>

<html>
<head>
      <title>Displaying Records from MySQL 'Names' table</title>
      <style>
      body { font: 100% Verdana; }
      </style>
</head>
<body>

<p align="center">All records in the 'Names' table:</p>

<asp:DataGrid ID="dgrAllNames" HorizontalAlign="Center" CellPadding="3" Runat="server" />

</body>
</html>

I am not 100% sure of the exact names but I think you will need

MySqlCommand myCommand = new MySqlCommand();
myCommand.ConnectionString = ConnectString;
myCommand.CommandText = "DELETE FROM Names";
myCommand.Open();
myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();

Same idea for update and insert..

hi,

first is it asp.net 1.1 or 2.0? you are using the datagrid so i suspect 1.1...

check this out
http://www.codersource.net/asp_net_datagrid_part1_azam.html

what is required -  you need to add columns to the grid, and at least the edit column. bind the data to the grid. then you write an event handler that is connected to the update command from the edit column, to fire insert sql on the db...

another link to check
http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/aspplus/samples/webforms/ctrlref/webctrl/datagrid/doc_datagrid.aspx

this is an example of a basic grid with 2 table fields(id and name) and and edit column for edit and update current data - you can look up how to do insert new row and delete.
