I am looking to select data from a database in the .vb file so I can do an if/then statement. I then want that information to display on the .aspx page, in a gridview, or however it would be easiest. I am new to VB.net and just now getting a handle on it.

Below is the code for both the .vb file and the .aspx file. I think I have the connection string setup correctly but im not sure how to do the if/then in the .vb file. additionally I am stumped on how to get this to talk to the .aspx page and display the data.

Thanks for your help
---.vb file---
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Partial Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim now = Date.Now
        Dim Conn As New SqlConnection("Initial Catalog=court_dms;Data Source=DINO;Integrated Security=no; User ID=norton;PWD=goldcat13")
        Dim SQL As String
        SQL = "SELECT * FROM court_gbs"
        Dim Comm As New SqlCommand(SQL, Conn)
        If court_gbs.judge = hoover Then
            Response.Write("test value")
        End If
        Conn.Close()
    End Sub
End Class
 
 
 
---.aspx file---

Here is the error, and also court_gbs is my table name, and judge is a column

Compiler Error Message: BC30451: Name 'court_gbs' is not declared.

Source Error:

 

Line 9:          SQL = "SELECT * FROM court_gbs"
Line 10:         Dim Comm As New SqlCommand(SQL, Conn)
Line 11:         If court_gbs.judge = hoover Then
Line 12:             Response.Write("test value")
Line 13:         End If

It looks like you're missing a few pieces. First is how you get the data; ADO .NET uses a disconnected data model.

Dim dtJudges as New DataTable("Judges")
Using conn As New SqlConnection("Initial Catalog=court_dms;Data Source=DINO;Integrated Security=no; User ID=norton;PWD=goldcat13")
  Using cmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM court_gbs", conn)
    Using da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
      da.Fill(dtJudges)
    End Using
  End Using
End Using
 
Now, you need to bind the datatable to the grid.
GridView1.DataSource = dtJudges

It's been a while since I've used ASP.NET, do I don't recall... you might have to add
GridView1.DataBind

Hello, I did what you stated above, but it is now saying the datatable is not defined. Below is the error and the new code:

Compiler Error Message: BC30002: Type 'DataTable' is not defined.

Source Error:

 

Line 4:      
Line 5:      Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
Line 6:          Dim dtJudges As New DataTable("Judges")
Line 7:          Using conn As New SqlConnection("Initial Catalog=court_dms;Data Source=DINO;Integrated Security=no; User ID=norton;PWD=goldcat13")
Line 8:              Using cmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM court_gbs", conn)
 

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Partial Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim dtJudges As New DataTable("Judges")
        Using conn As New SqlConnection("Initial Catalog=court_dms;Data Source=DINO;Integrated Security=no; User ID=norton;PWD=goldcat13")
            Using cmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM court_gbs", conn)
                Using da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
                    da.Fill(dtJudges)
                End Using
            End Using
        End Using
        GridView1.DataSource = dtJudges
    End Sub
End Class

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

OK, I was playing with this and in VS it recommended adding the following:
Imports System.Data
It now is working without error, but is a blank page with no data, not sure what that is all about. If this imports System.Data is wrong feel free to yell lol
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Data
 
Partial Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
 
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim dtJudges As New DataTable("Judges")
        Using conn As New SqlConnection("Initial Catalog=court_dms;Data Source=DINO;Integrated Security=no; User ID=norton;PWD=goldcat13")
            Using cmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM court_gbs", conn)
                Using da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
                    da.Fill(dtJudges)
                End Using
            End Using
        End Using
        GridView1.DataSource = dtJudges
    End Sub
End Class

You'll also need to import System.Data.SqlClient.

I'm assuming that you're using SQL Server as your back end database.

Did you try adding GridView1.DataBind?

Sorry, should have paid more attention to what you said the first time, about the databind. I added the databind and all is well, thanks so much for your help. I have one more question and will put a link on the bottom of this, relating to if/then, then I am done. Below is the working code:
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Data
 
Partial Class _Default
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
 
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        Dim dtJudges As New DataTable("Judges")
        Using conn As New SqlConnection("Initial Catalog=court_dms;Data Source=DINO;Integrated Security=no; User ID=norton;PWD=goldcat13")
            Using cmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM court_gbs", conn)
                Using da As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
                    da.Fill(dtJudges)
                End Using
            End Using
        End Using
        GridView1.DataSource = dtJudges
        GridView1.DataBind()
    End Sub
End Class
