Private Sub FillDataSet()
    Dim connectionString As String = GetConnectionString()

    Using dataAdapter As New SqlDataAdapter( _
        queryString, connectionString)

        ' Add the handlers.
        AddHandler dataAdapter.SelectCommand.Connection.StateChange, _
            AddressOf OnStateChange

        ' Create a DataSet.
        Dim dataSet As New DataSet()

        ' Fill the DataSet, which fires several StateChange events.
        dataAdapter.Fill(dataSet, 0, 5, "Table")
    End Using
End Sub

Private Sub PrintEventArgs(ByVal args As StateChangeEventArgs)
    Console.WriteLine("  OriginalState= {0} CurrentState= {1}", _
        args.OriginalState, args.CurrentState)
End Sub
