Hi guys,

I am jumping into the world of OOP. For start can you please advise me in building a library  which contains classes like connection string  and open close, Classes which return update, insert and delete query, classes which return list<t> or data sets. I am looking to build this library generic to use with different applications.

kindest regards,

Here is an example of how I do it using Classes.
1. Define class called tblCIty to present my database table called tblCIty. Please note that this is an instantiating class
Public Class tblCity

    Property CityID As Guid
    Property City As String

    Sub New()

    End Sub
    Sub New(ByVal sqlRdr As SqlDataReader)
        _CityID = sqlRdr("CityID")
        _City = sqlRdr("City")
    End Sub
    Public Overrides Function ToString() As String
        Return _City
    End Function

End Class

Open in new window


After I have by class I can use the class to now list the Cities by add them to the List as Shown Below:
Public Shared Function List(ByVal sqlConn As SqlConnection, Optional ByVal sqlTrans As SqlTransaction = Nothing) As List(Of tblCity)
        Dim iList As New List(Of tblCity)
        Using sqlCmd As New SqlCommand("City_List", sqlConn, sqlTrans)
            sqlCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            Using sqlRdr As SqlDataReader = sqlCmd.ExecuteReader
                While sqlRdr.Read
                    iList.Add(New tblCity(sqlRdr))
                End While
                sqlRdr.Close()
            End Using
        End Using
        Return iList
    End Function

Open in new window

This  simple object manipulating code.

This kind of thing has been done a lot. Your question doesn't have any easy or simple one-page answer. First, I would direct you to libraries that already exist that provide for this functionality in the .NET framework. Mainly, the Entity Framework:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/data/ef.aspx

Otherwise, a simple web search on ".net c# crud framework" will give you a bunch of options to choose from.
