Introduction

It does a query from the sample Database AdventureWorks on the SQL Server where it is located and fills a datagrid control from a SQL query on a GUI form.


How to use

Enter the SQL query in the textbox, click the Query button and it will perform the query against the SQL Server and autofill the datagrid.

The Clear button clears the datagrid.

The Quit button closes the form and quits the applicaton.
