ObjectDataSource Control in ASP.Net

ObjectDataSource belongs to the family of data source controls in ASP.NET, which enables a declarative databinding model against a variety of underlying data stores, such as SQL databases or XML. The ObjectDataSource control allows developers to structure their applications using this traditional three-tiered architecture and still take advantage of the ease-of-use benefits of the declarative databinding model in ASP.NET.

<asp:ObjectDataSource ID="ObjectDataSource1" runat="server">


Binding Data in GridView using ObjectDataSource:

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource1" DataKeyNames="id">


    <asp:ObjectDataSource ID="ObjectDataSource1" runat="server" TypeName="Class1"



          <asp:ControlParameter Name="id" ControlID="GridView1"/>




Here TypeName="Class1" class1 is a .cs file in which CreateConnection function is created.

ControlID="GridView1" name of control in which data will be show.

public static DataSet CreateConnection(string id)


string connectionstring = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["mycon"].ConnectionString;

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(connectionstring);


string queryString;

queryString = "select id,pass,name  from [regform]";

SqlCommand dbCommand = new SqlCommand();

dbCommand.CommandText = queryString;

dbCommand.Connection = con;

SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(dbCommand);

DataSet ds = new DataSet();


return ds;




            <add name="mycon"connectionString="Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=my; User Id=sa; Password=mindstick"providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>


Write this connection string above <system.web>
