Populating items in a repeater from a class

I'm currently populating items in a repeater using the following code:

            Dim myConnectionMenu As New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
            Dim myCommandMenu As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
            myConnectionMenu.ConnectionString = myConString
            myCommandMenu.Connection = myConnectionMenu
            Dim ds As New Data.DataSet
            Dim da As New Data.SqlClient.SqlDataAdapter("select * from openquery(myServer,'SELECT MENUTEXT, HREF, HASSUB, SUBID FROM tblMENU WHERE SUBOF=0 ORDER BY MENUORDER')", myConnectionMenu)
            da.Fill(ds, "menuitems")
            rptMenu.DataSource = ds.Tables("menuitems")
            rptMenu.DataBind()

Open in new window


I have a class called basePage in my project. I'd like to run the above code in a routine in that class and call it from multiple pages. Is this possible? How would I go about doing it?

TIA

Put the code in the Base class constructor or create a private method and call it in the base class constructor
Public Class basePage 
    Sub New() 'Constructor 
        'add your code or the method call here
    End Sub
