When creating a datasource (dataset) with help of the wizard in Visual Studio one has the option of not storing password data in the connectionstring being saved in the config-xml-file. If I choose to "....set this information in my application code."; Can anybody refer me to a sample where the input of a "SQL server Authentication password" is handled by a dialogbox? The thing that I cannot figure out is what property should I set using the password input I get. I would hope that there is a smarter solution than setting the password-part of the connectionstring of each of the commands for every tableadapter in my dataset?

You'll need to set it for the connection on the TableAdapter prior to use. If you cheat a little and change the connection in the config to contain a placeholder for the password:

i.e.
<add name="ConsoleApplication1.Properties.Settings.DemoConnectionString"
            connectionString="Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=Demo;User ID=AUser;PWD={0}"
            providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />

Open in new window

Then you can do something like:
DemoDataSetTableAdapters.DemoTableAdapter adap = new DemoDataSetTableAdapters.DemoTableAdapter();
adap.Connection.ConnectionString = string.Format(adap.Connection.ConnectionString, "thePassword");

Open in new window

The technique intercepts the reading og the connectionstring time from settings . IT it this possible to  supply your additions to the connectionstring before returning the value. I had to use a password function to be able to store the obtained password as static variable within the function.
