Hi Experts,
I'm looking for a nice little library that uses NPGSQL that makes things even easier - something that manages my connection, or stores the username & password used to make the connection.  Something that can build queries perhaps, anything to do with NPGSQL that makes my life even easier.  If you know of the existence of such a free library (to use in commercial apps), please let me know.  If you know they probably don't exist - that'll be a good answer too!

Many thanks!
Mike

ADO.NET libraries are accessed by very useful Visual Studio software from Microsoft Company. I can post web link if you cannot find them on the internet.

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Hi Gheist,

Are these libraries capable of using Postgres?  Have you used this?

Thank you,
Mike

.net's core ADO libraries do use NPGSQL. It is sole purpose of existence of NPGSQL
I have not used .NET for practical purposes yet besides it was bundled with video drivers.

which ADO.NET libraries are you talking about?  Sorry for the silly question but I'm so new to this.

Why on earth would you be rude to me?  Obviously I didn't understand what you were saying - I told you I was new to this - I am well aware of NPGSQL's functionality - even how it works because I already went through the manuals.  I didn't understand when you said that Microsoft's core libraries use NPGSQL directly...  Now I understand.

You have been very helpful, so thank you - just that you needlessly made me feel like a bit of an idiot.
