.net Windows Form Application and SQL Server 2012 Express

I have a C# .net windows form application that uses SQL Server 2012 Express. Is there an easy way to provide SQL Server database management through an application?  For example, I want to provide my users the ability to create tables, change tables and delete tables.  Is there a .net class or a plugin component that can be used to provide a UI window for users to do these type of things?

What you are looking for is a kind of SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio), but a concise version of it...

You can do it, in .NET, but not without huge coding stuff....

The below code can be used to create a table

function void abcd(string SQL)
{
using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(conStr))
        {
            try
            {
                //
                // Open the SqlConnection.
                //
                con.Open();
                //
                // The following code uses an SqlCommand based on the SqlConnection.
                //
                using (SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand(SQL, con))
                    command.ExecuteNonQuery();

            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
            }
        }
}

Open in new window


you can use this function to create the table as below

abcd("CREATE TABLE Customer(First_Name char(50),Last_Name char(50),Address char(50),City char(50),Country char(25),Birth_Date datetime);");

Open in new window



but this does not provide a good UI as it has in the SSMS.

You can do it all thru code.  Here's a snapshot of my Database Utilities window.
