Dim myDataAdapter As MySqlDataAdapter
Dim myDataSet     As DataSet

Dim strSQL        As String
Dim iRecordCount  As Integer

myConnection = New MySqlConnection(“server=localhost; user id=mickgenie; password=password; database=database;”)

strSQL = “SELECT * FROM mytable;”

myDataAdapter = New MySqlDataAdapter(strSQL, myConnection)
myDataSet = New Dataset()
myDataAdapter.Fill(myDataSet, “mytable”)

MySQLDataGrid.DataSource = myDataSet
