Visual C# Windows Application.

Is it possible and if so how do you query the SQL Database Names when you have the Server Name and Instance?

For instance:  I know the server name is SQLSERVER1  and the instance is SQLEXPRESS.  How do I get a list of the 3 or 4 databases on that server: master, mydatabase, etc.

Thanks for the help.

SELECT [CATALOG_NAME]
FROM [master].[INFORMATION_SCHEMA].[SCHEMATA]
