I have a table in MS SQL 2005 and I want  pull a few fields from a table called MLBPlayers and I'm not sure how to write the syntax to dump these values from MS SQL Database to Listview control on a windows form. I got this far and then got stuck.
Imports System
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Public Class Form1
    Shared WithEvents con As SqlConnection

    Shared Sub Main()
        con = New SqlConnection("Persist Security Info=False;User ID=sa;Password=50Cent;Initial Catalog=TSN2;Server=tsnappdev01")

        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()

        cmd.CommandText = "SELECT FirstName, LastName, Position, Height , Weight FROM MLBPlayers"
        cmd.Connection = con

        Try
            con.Open()
            Dim reader As SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
            Do
                While reader.Read()
                    Console.WriteLine(reader(0))
                End While
            Loop While reader.NextResult()

            reader.Close()
        Finally
            con.Close()
        End Try
    End Sub


End Class

Open in new window


Instead of console.write that's where the add Listview will go with Option Explict and Option Strict on. Thanks EE

I tried but the form was never seen don't I have to define columns and then

do something like

ListView1.Items.Add(reader(Firstname).ToString)
ListView1.Items.Add(reader(Lastname).ToString)
ListView1.Items.Add(reader(Position).ToString) ect.

It may be there are too many records in DATABASE TO DISPLAY. I appreciate your help.
