dataset or bindingSource? (C# / C Sharp)

Hi,
(first gotta tell ya, Im a total newbie)
Heres the progress so far, I have successfully got the data from a varchar thats called ex1 from the database into a textbox called ex1_textbox.
My dataset name is: settingsDataset1
my bindingsource name is: bindingSource1
my tableadaptername is _SettingsTableTableAdapter

How can i access the dataset via code?
For example:
MessageBox.Show("The dataset of EX1 is:" + <WHAT CODE COMES HERE?)

Then i want to do something like this:

(begin the edit)
ex1=ex1+"something";
(end the edit and update the database)

Thats it... am totally confused...

thanks in advance!

use a Grid View to bind your data set , and show the data, you can add ability to update and delete data too

Go via the dataset
then tables
then row
then fields

like this:

string chk_box_value_from_db = settingsDataSet11.Tables[0].Rows[0]["SplashDisabled"].ToString();
