I'm creating a C# application using a three tiered approach. I've passed my string variable(Rating) from the presentation layer to the business layer now I need to pass it to the data access layer and insert it into my sql database. I have no idea how where to begin.
//Busness layer 

public BLL()

        {

        }



        //Properties

        public string Rating

        {

            get

            {

                return rating;

            }

            set

            {

                rating = value;

            }

          }

        }



//Data access layer

        public int Save(string sql) 

        {

            string sqlIns = "INSERT INTO table (Rating) VALUES (@Rating)";

            conn.Open();

            OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(sql, conn);

            return cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

Normally you would pass a business object between the layers, or have a method in your DAL that accepts parameters from a business object (depending on what pattern you are using).

It's not clear from the code you have posted how the Rating property fits into your overall structure. However, in very simply terms, if you are saving just the rating by itself then you would change the method in your DLL to something like:
public void Save(string rating)
{
     string sqlIns = "INSERT INTO table (Rating) VALUES (@Rating)";
     
     SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(sqlIns, conn);
     cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Rating", rating);

     try
    {
        conn.Open();
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
    }
    catch
   {
        // do something with the exception
   }
    finally
    {
           if (conn.ConnectionState != ConnectionState.Closed)
               conn.Close();
    }
}

Open in new window


You might the have a Save() method in your BLL to save the data:
    // in BLL
    public void Save()
    {
           DAL dal = new DAL();
           dal.Save(this.Rating);
    }

Open in new window


Just a simple example based on what I could glean from your current code. But hopefully it will provide you with a starting point.

I believe I'm close but not quite there yet. All I need to do is pass a textbox value to the business layer then insert it into my database from the data access layer. Can you see where I’m going wrong?.
//Presentation layer

private void btnAddRating_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            string Rating = txtNewRating.Text.ToUpper();

            BLL setRating = new BLL();

            Rating = setRating.ToString();

            setRating.Save();

        }

//Busness layer

public class BLL

    {

        private string _rating;

        //Default constructor

        public BLL()

        {

        }

        //Properties

        public string Rating

        {

            get

            {

                return _rating;

            }

            set

            {

                _rating = value;

            }

        }

public void Save()

        {

            DAL dal = new DAL();

            dal.Save(this.Rating);

        }

  }

//Data access layer



       //Getting all ratings from ratings table

        public DataSet getRatings(string sql)

        {

            // Connection and SQL strings

            string SQL = "SELECT * FROM tblRating";

            try

            {

                // create a connection object

                string ConnectionString = "Data Source=.\\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=true; AttachDbFilename=D:\\MoviesDB\\MovieDB.mdf;User Instance=true;";

                SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConnectionString);

                // create command object

                SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(SQL, conn);

                DataSet ds = new DataSet();

                // open connection

                conn.Open();

                // call command's ExcuteReader

                SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(SQL, conn);

                da.Fill(ds);

                return ds;

           }

            finally

            {

                conn.Close();

            }

        }



 public void Save(string rating)

{

     string sqlIns = "INSERT INTO table (Rating) VALUES (@Rating)";

     

     SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(sqlIns, conn);

     cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Rating", rating);



     try

     {

         conn.Open();

         cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

     }

     catch

     {

         // do something with the exception

     }

     finally

     {

         if (conn.ConnectionState != ConnectionState.Closed)

             conn.Close();

     }

    }

   }

This block is incorrect:
            BLL setRating = new BLL();
            Rating = setRating.ToString();
            setRating.Save()

Open in new window

It should be something more like:
            BLL setRating = new BLL();
            setRating.Rating = Rating;
            setRating.Save()
