    Hi add datagridview on your form and go to the column properties add column then set it name and then set it property name same as column name in database.
    below is form code.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System.Data.SqlClient;

    namespace WindowsFormsApplication3
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    public Form1()

    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    SqlConnection con=new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=.\SqlExpress;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;Integrated Security=True");
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();
    SqlDataAdapter sda = new SqlDataAdapter("select * from tblProduct", con);
    dataGridView1.DataSource = dt;

  • Thanks. it's very helping. but there is a problem.
    what if someone want to load data using Entity framework.
  • Hey waqas why u use "sda"?
  • Hello @Haris 
    Here Waqas has created a new instance/object of SQL Data Adapter named sda. SQL Data Adapter is used to read data from DB using any query.
    You can read Details about SQL Data Adapter here
