DataSet / Filling DataSet?

I'm using vb.net / winforms.
I created a DataSetfor for some tables on a SQL Server. On the form the DataSet shows on the bottom. When I go into it (Edit in DataSet Designer) I see the table columns and bellow it TableAdapter, bellow that I see SQL Fill, GetData().
What is this Fill and GetDAte()? If they are methods to load the data, how do I call them from my code? As is, when I check this DataSet it contains now data.

Check the following example to fill:

Dim northwindDataSet As New NorthwindDataSet()
Dim customersTableAdapter As New NorthwindDataSetTableAdapters.CustomersTableAdapter()

customersTableAdapter.Fill(northwindDataSet.Customers)
