How do I populate an ObjectDataSource from code behind?

Hi,

I have the below objectdatasource to populate my asp.net listview control...

<asp:ObjectDataSource  
        ID="ObjectDataSource1"  
        runat="server"  
        SelectMethod="GetList"  
        TypeName="Traders">
</asp:ObjectDataSource>

Attached is my Traders class and GetList method. How can I alter this to pull my "Rating" and "Id" values from my sql database instead of using the get set approach?

Thanks.
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;

public class Traders
{
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public int[] Rating { get; set; }
    public int Id { get; set; }

    public List<Traders> GetList()
    {
        List<Traders> tempList = new List<Traders>();
        for (int i = 0; i < 5; i++)
        {
            Traders myTraders = new Traders();
            myTraders.Id = i;
            myTraders.Name = "Traders " + i.ToString();
            myTraders.Rating = new int[] { 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 };
            myTraders.Rating[i] = i + 1;
            tempList.Add(myTraders);
        }
        return tempList;
    }
}

you can use SqlDataReader like shown here and loop through to fill your list...
