I have some labels in my silverlight application, and I want to get data from SQL server for this label text.
How can I do that?

Something's like this with C#:

mySqlConnection = new SqlConnection(ConnectionString);

			SqlDataReader myReader = null;
			string sql = "select isnull(sum(Quantity),0) Quantity from Inventory where [Type] = 'Primary'";
			string sql2 = "select isnull(sum(Quantity),0) Quantity from Inventory where [Type] = 'Secondary'";

			SqlCommand mySqlCommand = new SqlCommand(sql + ";" + sql2, mySqlConnection);

				myReader = mySqlCommand.ExecuteReader();

				while (myReader.Read())
					RemainingPrimary.Text = myReader["Quantity"].ToString();
				 while (myReader.Read())
					RemainingSecondary.Text = myReader["Quantity"].ToString();
			catch (Exception ex)
				MessageBox.Show("Can't Get Data" + ex.Message);

				if (myReader != null)
				if (mySqlConnection.State == ConnectionState.Open)

Open in new window
