create Data layer

When creating DAL, data layer, I generally create something like below to return dataset.  

Public Function Fill_Grid() As DataSet
        Dim ds As New DataSet
        Using Sqlcon As New SqlConnection(WebConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("myConnectionString").ToString)
            Using SqlComnd As New SqlCommand("mysp", Sqlcon)
                SqlComnd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                Using sqlAD As New SqlDataAdapter(SqlComnd)
                    sqlAD.Fill(ds)
                End Using
            End Using
        End Using
        Return ds
    End Function

My question is when I create SqlDataSource1 like below, how would I create my DAL? Or Do I even need it?




 <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:myConnectionString %>"
                            SelectCommand="mysp" SelectCommandType="StoredProcedure"></asp:SqlDataSource>

No. ASP.Net will take care of it for you. I don't think that is the best way to consume data though.

Would you just create a function to return dataset like above then?
"No. ASP.Net will take care of it for you. I don't think that is the best way to consume data though. ", Could you clarify this a bit?
