VB dot net and MySQL


O

Ook

Has anyone sucessfully connected a VB form or a VB asp form to a MySQL
database? If so,
would you care to share how you did it? I'm also trying to figure out the
same thing for C#. We are trying to decide if we want to useVB.Net or C#,
and the first step is to see if we can connect to MySQL reliably.

Hi Ook,

This is a question often aked in the newsgroup

microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.adonet.

If you do a search on "MySQL" in that newsgroup you will normaly see a lot
of answers.

Not trying to be a smartass, but www.mysql.org has a huge API for VB5/6/.NET
and connecting in. I used it once on a test DB, but haven't gotten MySQL to
work all that well (Lack of time really) and am not looking forward to
bringing all my StoredProcs and turning them into code-behind, but that's
not too much of an issue now since I'm re-writing the origional VB6 app in
DotNet, doing this from the groundup is proving alot less painfull than
"upgrading". But, yes, MySql.org has a ton of stuff on doing this. Plus,
there's a new version out, that could prove to be interesting.
