Doing computation of data retrieved from Microsoft SQL using c# & .net 3.5

Hi I currently have a database, that contains the columns description, and cost. On the page a combo-box that gets populated from the database (datasource id = pricesheet).

I after the user inputs the quanity, and selects the description, I want to be able to search for the description in the database and also retrieve the cost. My question is how would I do that. I already have a connection string when setting up the SqlDataSource. Can I just use the existing connection string or the existing SqlDataSouce pricesheet? If so how would I do that? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi nelsonlowe,

Of course, you can use the SqlDataSource. Here is a sample for your requirement.

Quantity:<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="TBquantity"></asp:TextBox>
    Description:<asp:DropDownList runat="server" ID="DDLdesc" DataTextField="Description" DataValueField="Cost" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource1" AutoPostBack="true"></asp:DropDownList>
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource1" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:sql %>"
      SelectCommand="select * from [table]"></asp:SqlDataSource>
    <asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="SqlDataSource2" AutoGenerateColumns="false">
              <asp:Label ID="LBdesc" Text='<%# Eval("Description") %>' runat="server" />
              <asp:Label ID="LBcost" Text='<%# Calculation(Convert.ToInt32(Eval("Cost"))) %>' runat="server" />
    <asp:SqlDataSource ID="SqlDataSource2" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:sql %>"
      SelectCommand="select * from [table] where Description=@Description">
        <asp:ControlParameter ControlID="DDLdesc" DefaultValue="Sample" Name="Description" PropertyName="SelectedValue" />

protected string Calculation(int cost)
        if (TBquantity.Text == "")
            return (cost * 1).ToString();
            return (cost * Convert.ToInt32(TBquantity.Text)).ToString();

use VB.NET and C#.NET code in the same C#.NET project

Application created in new version of .NET (3.0 or 3.5) can use the library created in older version of .NET(i.e.-1.0 or 2.0)?
Hi All, I am using Visual Studio .NET compiler for compiling my application . We have plugins (as library) which the user can write by their own in .NET . We are building our code in Visual Studio 2005 but we have already some plug-ins which are written in previous versions of Visual Studio (i.e. 2002 and 2003).
