I have category, date and description in database. I want to display the records in following way:

Category: 1

- date description.....
- date description....

Category: 2

-date description.....
- date description....

How to show such result using asp.net and c#, my database is mysql

Watch Question

You write your query in mysql which will result you the desired format. Once you achieve this only thing remaining is to create connection to mysql using c# and execute this select command which fills your data set and than bind that data set to gridview control.

This will do all for you. For getting such format you can write query "order by categoryname"

Hope it helps
