Command cmd =
con.open?

con.close?

 // Reload the data with current parameters
                SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection();
                con.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["omegaloveConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
               
                ds = con.ExecuteQuery(this.Query, this.QueryParameters, this.CompleteWhereCondition, this.OrderBy);

I don't have the syntax.

did u add System.Data.SqlClient namespace on top of the page?

It looks like you didn't add the SqlClient namespace where you have other namespaces like System.Data, etc

check the example here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dw70f090%28VS.80%29.aspx

you need to have :

1. ConnectionString
2. query or Command
3. Connection Open
4. DataReader
5. ExecuteReader
6. Connection Close

In your code I can't see any Datareader, you are just having connection strings, which you open but to execute the query/command you need to have datareader. Refer to the link I sent you

Cheers!

            {
                // Reload the data with current parameters
                SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection();
                con.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["omegaloveConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
                con.Open();
              //  ds = con.ExecuteQuery(this.Query, this.QueryParameters, this.CompleteWhereCondition, this.OrderBy);
                con.Close();

            }
            // external dataset is used

                if (this.OnDataReload != null)
                {
                    ds = OnDataReload(CompleteWhereCondition);
                }
