Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates a SqlCommand, then executes it by passing a string that is a Transact-SQL SELECT statement, and a string to use to connect to the data source. CommandBehavior is set to CloseConnection.

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of ExecuteReader. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.
[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub CreateMySqlDataReader(mySelectQuery As String, _
myConnectionString As String)
    Dim myConnection As New SqlConnection(myConnectionString)
    Dim myCommand As New SqlCommand(mySelectQuery, myConnection)
    myConnection.Open()
    Dim myReader As SqlDataReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
    While myReader.Read()
        Console.WriteLine(myReader.GetString(0))
    End While
    myReader.Close()
    'Implicitly closes the connection because CommandBehavior.CloseConnection was specified.
 End Sub


[C#] 
public void CreateMySqlDataReader(string mySelectQuery,string myConnectionString) 
{
   SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection(myConnectionString);
   SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand(mySelectQuery, myConnection);
   myConnection.Open();
   SqlDataReader myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection);
   while(myReader.Read()) 
   {
      Console.WriteLine(myReader.GetString(0));
   }
   myReader.Close();
   //Implicitly closes the connection because CommandBehavior.CloseConnection was specified.
}


[C++] 
public:
    void CreateMySqlDataReader(String* mySelectQuery, String* myConnectionString)
    {
        SqlConnection* myConnection = new SqlConnection(myConnectionString);
        SqlCommand* myCommand = new SqlCommand(mySelectQuery, myConnection);
        myConnection->Open();
        SqlDataReader* myReader = myCommand->ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior::CloseConnection);
        while(myReader->Read())
        {
            Console::WriteLine(myReader->GetString(0));
        }
        myReader->Close();
        //Implicitly closes the connection because CommandBehavior::CloseConnection was specified.
    };
