Examples

The following example creates a SqlDataAdapter and sets the SelectCommand, InsertCommand, UpdateCommand, and DeleteCommand properties. It assumes you have already created a SqlConnection object.

public static SqlDataAdapter CreateCustomerAdapter(
    SqlConnection connection)
{
    SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter();

    // Create the SelectCommand.
    SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM Customers " +
        "WHERE Country = @Country AND City = @City", connection);

    // Add the parameters for the SelectCommand.
    command.Parameters.Add("@Country", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15);
    command.Parameters.Add("@City", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15);

    adapter.SelectCommand = command;

    // Create the InsertCommand.
    command = new SqlCommand(
        "INSERT INTO Customers (CustomerID, CompanyName) " +
        "VALUES (@CustomerID, @CompanyName)", connection);

    // Add the parameters for the InsertCommand.
    command.Parameters.Add("@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID");
    command.Parameters.Add("@CompanyName", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 40, "CompanyName");

    adapter.InsertCommand = command;

    // Create the UpdateCommand.
    command = new SqlCommand(
        "UPDATE Customers SET CustomerID = @CustomerID, CompanyName = @CompanyName " +
        "WHERE CustomerID = @oldCustomerID", connection);

    // Add the parameters for the UpdateCommand.
    command.Parameters.Add("@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID");
    command.Parameters.Add("@CompanyName", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 40, "CompanyName");
    SqlParameter parameter = command.Parameters.Add(
        "@oldCustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID");
    parameter.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original;

    adapter.UpdateCommand = command;

    // Create the DeleteCommand.
    command = new SqlCommand(
        "DELETE FROM Customers WHERE CustomerID = @CustomerID", connection);

    // Add the parameters for the DeleteCommand.
    parameter = command.Parameters.Add(
        "@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID");
    parameter.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original;

    adapter.DeleteCommand = command;

    return adapter;
}
Public Function CreateCustomerAdapter( _
  ByVal connection As SqlConnection) As SqlDataAdapter

    Dim adapter As SqlDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter()

    ' Create the SelectCommand.
    Dim command As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand( _
        "SELECT * FROM Customers " & _
        "WHERE Country = @Country AND City = @City", connection)

    ' Add the parameters for the SelectCommand.
    command.Parameters.Add("@Country", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15)
    command.Parameters.Add("@City", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 15)

    adapter.SelectCommand = command

    ' Create the InsertCommand.
    command = New SqlCommand( _
        "INSERT INTO Customers (CustomerID, CompanyName) " & _
        "VALUES (@CustomerID, @CompanyName)", connection)

    ' Add the parameters for the InsertCommand.
    command.Parameters.Add("@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID")
    command.Parameters.Add("@CompanyName", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 40, "CompanyName")

    adapter.InsertCommand = command

    ' Create the UpdateCommand.
    command = New SqlCommand( _
        "UPDATE Customers SET CustomerID = @CustomerID, CompanyName = @CompanyName " & _
        "WHERE CustomerID = @oldCustomerID", connection)

    ' Add the parameters for the UpdateCommand.
    command.Parameters.Add("@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID")
    command.Parameters.Add("@CompanyName", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 40, "CompanyName")
    Dim parameter As SqlParameter = command.Parameters.Add( _
        "@oldCustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID")
    parameter.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original

    adapter.UpdateCommand = command

    ' Create the DeleteCommand.
    command = New SqlCommand( _
        "DELETE FROM Customers WHERE CustomerID = @CustomerID", connection)

    ' Add the parameters for the DeleteCommand.
    command.Parameters.Add( _
        "@CustomerID", SqlDbType.NChar, 5, "CustomerID")
    parameter.SourceVersion = DataRowVersion.Original

    adapter.DeleteCommand = command

    Return adapter
End Function

Remarks

When SelectCommand is assigned to a previously created SqlCommand, the SqlCommand is not cloned. The SelectCommand maintains a reference to the previously created SqlCommand object.

If the SelectCommand does not return any rows, no tables are added to the DataSet, and no exception is raised.
