Example of binding a gridview to dataset

I found this example of binding a gridview to a dataset but how about if I want to use a TableAdapter?

this is easier to me, because no need to make a dataset in the project.

      System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand command = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("SELECT TOP 20 Customers.* FROM Customers");
      using (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection conn = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["NorthwindConnectionString"].ConnectionString))
      {
         command.Connection = conn;
         conn.Open();
         GridView1.DataSource = command.ExecuteReader();
         GridView1.DataBind();
         conn.Close();
      }

use can also easily change to use dataadapter and dataset as your example.

after you constructed your strong typed DataSets and TableAdapters, you can use them as normal datasets or data adapters. the default adapter method name will be GetData() or Fill():

   protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
   {
      LoadData();
   }
   private void LoadData()
   {
      DataSet_NorthwindTableAdapters.CustomersTableAdapter tblCustomer = new DataSet_NorthwindTableAdapters.CustomersTableAdapter();
      GridView1.DataSource = tblCustomer.GetData();
      GridView1.DataBind();
      DataSet_Northwind ds = new DataSet_Northwind();
      tblCustomer.Fill(ds.Customers);
      GridView2.DataSource = ds.Customers;
      GridView2.DataBind();
   }

for example, what's the difference between the example i posted and zeroxp's example?

i can see any performance benefit with strongly typed datasets. i'm not really sure about the performance difference. i imagine the strongly typed one perform more mapping process.
but the main benefit is you have easy and direct access to table structure. once you have the dataset configured, you can use it as a compiled class with get/update methods.
but if you just want use a simple query to access or update some record, it is still easy to use normal command, datareader, dataadapter and dataset directly.
