Proper way to extract data from a SqlDataReader object

I would like to know the best way to get the data from the SqlDataReader below:


            SqlDataReader qvr= null;
            q_Command.CommandText = "select * from users where username = @username ";
            q_Command.Parameters.Clear();
            q_Command.Parameters.Add("@username", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = SqlUserName;
            qvr = q_Command.ExecuteReader();
            qvr.Read();

At this point, how would I assign the contents of qvr to various text boxes on my form?  I have ten boxes I need to populate with the contents of qvr.

Thanks!

while (qvr.Read())
{
      mytextbox1.Text = qvr[0].ToString();  // you could also say qvr["columnname"].ToString();
      mytextbox2.Text = qvr[1].ToString();  // index is order of the fields returned in query

}

Thanks!

So in other words it would be 0 - 10 using your lines below:

mytextbox1.Text = qvr[0].ToString();  // you could also say qvr["columnname"].ToString();
mytextbox2.Text = qvr[1].ToString();  // index is order of the fields returned in query

Yes?

If there are 10 columns in the query.

Better example is "Select username, fname, lname, title, building from users"

qvr[0].ToString()     == qvr["username"].ToString();
qvr[1].ToString()     == qvr["fname"].ToString();
qvr[2].ToString()     == qvr["lname"].ToString();
qvr[3].ToString()     == qvr["title"].ToString();
qvr[4].ToString()     == qvr["building"].ToString();

Make sense?
