Hi

I have an ASP.net website, where I send an email using the following code.
I have a SQL database that I pull information from into a GridView.
I now want to Email the results of my SQL query using the emailing code below.
How do I do this?

    Public Function SendScheduleMail(ByVal from As String, ByVal recepient As String, ByVal bcc As String, ByVal cc As String, ByVal subject As String, ByVal body As String) As String
        Try

            ' Instantiate a new instance of MailMessage
            Dim mMailMessage As New MailMessage()

            ' Set the sender address of the mail message
            mMailMessage.From = New MailAddress(from)
            ' Set the recepient address of the mail message
            mMailMessage.To.Add(New MailAddress(recepient))

            ' Check if the bcc value is nothing or an empty string
            If Not bcc Is Nothing And bcc <> String.Empty Then
                ' Set the Bcc address of the mail message
                mMailMessage.Bcc.Add(New MailAddress(bcc))
            End If

            ' Check if the cc value is nothing or an empty value
            If Not cc Is Nothing And cc <> String.Empty Then
                ' Set the CC address of the mail message
                mMailMessage.CC.Add(New MailAddress(cc))
            End If

            ' Set the subject of the mail message
            mMailMessage.Subject = subject
            ' Set the body of the mail message
            mMailMessage.Body = body

            ' Set the format of the mail message body as HTML
            mMailMessage.IsBodyHtml = True
            ' Set the priority of the mail message to normal
            mMailMessage.Priority = MailPriority.Normal

            ' Instantiate a new instance of SmtpClient
            Dim mSmtpClient As New SmtpClient()
            ' Send the mail message
            mSmtpClient.Send(mMailMessage)

            SendScheduleMail = "Mail Sent"
        Catch ex As Exception
            SendScheduleMail = ex.Message
        End Try
    End Function

I will suggest performing your query in the email sub like this:


    Protected Sub YourInfo()

        Dim Conn As SqlConnection
        Conn = New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("DBConnectionString").ConnectionString)
        Conn.Open()
        Dim emailcmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT....from table... ";", Conn)
        Dim dr = emailcmd.ExecuteReader()
        If dr.Read() Then
            email = dr.GetString(0)
            fullname = dr.GetString(1)
            additional info = GetString...
            additional info = GetString...
        End If
        'code for email requests
        Dim objSmtpClient As SmtpClient = New SmtpClient("yourgetway", 25)
        'Setup credentials to login to our sender email address ("email", "password")
        Dim credentials As New NetworkCredential("username", "password")
        objSmtpClient.Credentials = credentials
        Dim objSender As MailAddress = New MailAddress("NoReply@yourdomain.com", "NoReply@yourdomain.com")
        Dim objMail As MailMessage = New MailMessage("NoReply@yourdomain.com", email)
        'objMail.Bcc.Add("someaddress")
        'objMail.To.Add(email)
        'objMail.CC.Add("someaddress")
        objMail.Subject = "whatever"
        objMail.Body = " Dear " & fullname & " <br> something message "
        objMail.IsBodyHtml = True
        objSmtpClient.Send(objMail)
        dr.Close()

    End Sub

Open in new window


Then on pageLoad() event you call the sub:

YourInfo()

Open in new window
