Need starting place for VB linq to sql+datasets
Posted on 2012-08-16
I'm looking for is a good VB tutorial how to do these things or an example that can explain each part of why it was done the way it was done.
I'm new to programming and all the sites I find show me how to do select, insert, update, delete using LINQ. My problem isn't so much doing these task as it is how to get these individual row/columns to use controls like text boxes. I know hot to pull from text boxes and into the SQL database, but I don't know how to pull from SQL databse to put info into text boxes I can only do datagridview.
I know the very basic of using datasets, but I don't want to have to type a long SQL select statement then trying to figure out whats wrong with it (The purpose of LINQ I believe) to fill these datasets.
Sorta side question I know its kinda vague but Overall is it easier to write a complete interface to a databases UI going to use just LINQ to SQL, Datasets, or a combination of LINQ + Datasets?
