Learning C# & databases

P: n/a
I'm trying to learn how to use databases and database controls through C#. I
have been using "Visual C#.net" from Microsoft Press. I'm guessing it was
based on Framework 1.0. SQLConnection and SQLAdapter classes are involved
when you drag a table onto a form.

I'm using Visual Studio 2008 with Framework 3.5. Different components are
involved in the process. I need a good book in learning databases in this
aparently new environment. Thanks.

If you are interested in learning about various data controls, you most
likely will NOT find that information in a book about ADO .NET. Most books
on .NET database (ADO .NET) programming, cover the classes needed to connect
and query, but not so much on the display of the data (the controls).

You should investigate books on Visual Studio 2008 for info. on databound
controls.
