Hi,

I am making Windows Application in C# with SQL 2005

On my click button I am executing a query, Queru has multiple records.

It is like

SqlDataReader objRdr

while (objRdr.Read())
{
}

Now, I have another stop button, now as soon as someone clicks on the stop button from windows application form,

my while loop do not work anymore and everything should stop, I can call my terminate process.

Can anyone help me how to do this

Many thanks in advance

You want to stop reading you results from the query? But how long does it take to read data? Is it so big?

One possible solution to add another (global) boolean value that you set with your stop button, e.g. bool stop.
Initially it is false, when stop button clicked it becomes true.
I your loop you check:


while (objRdr.Read() && !stop)
{
}

also add this line inside the loop if you want to form to be responsive and the user able to click the stop button
unless you are running the loop in another thread other than the main application thread.

while (objRdr.Read() && !stop)
{
    //Do your work
    System.Windows.Forms.Application.DoEvents();
}

If your process of executing the query is very cpu intensive then i suggest you invoke this on a separate thread..this way you have 2 ways of stopping the process

a) Kill your sub thread  by calling abort() or join()
b) as anarki_jimbel said update a string variable value and you can check it each time as mohzedan said
