Submitted by Nidhi, on February 10, 2021

In this program, here we will connect to the MySQL database and get employee records of the employee table then print them on the console screen.


The source code to print the column names of a specified MySql database table is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

//C#.NET program to print the column values of a 
//specified MySql database table.

using MySql.Data.MySqlClient;
using System;

class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        //Connection String to connect with MySQL database.
        string connString = "server=localhost;userid=root;password=root;database=Sample_DB";
        MySqlConnection conn = new MySqlConnection(connString);


        MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand("SELECT * FROM employee", conn);

        MySqlDataReader reader;

        reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();

            Console.WriteLine(reader.GetInt32(0) + " " + reader.GetString(1) + " " + reader.GetUInt32(2));

In the above program, we imported a namespace MySql.Data.MySqlClient to establish the connection with the MySql database. Then we created a class Program that contains the Main() method.

The Main() method is the entry point for the program. In the Main() method, we created a connection string variable ConnString that contains the database connectivity credentials. After that, we established the connection to the MySql database using MySqlConnection class and then get the employee records using MySqlDataReader class. Here, we used Read() method to record one by one and we used GetInt32(), GetString() methods to read column values and print records on the console screen.
