In this program, here we will connect to the MySQL database and then insert a record into the "employee" table.

C# code to insert a record to MySQL table

The source code to insert a record in the MySql database is given below. The given program is compiled and executed successfully.

// C# program to insert a record in MySql database.

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("INSERT INTO employee(eid,ename, salary) VALUES(@eid,@ename,@salary)", conn);

    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@eid", 101);
    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ename", "Amit Kumar");
    cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@salary", 43200);

    Console.WriteLine("Record inserted successfully");


Record inserted successfully
Press any key to continue . . .


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 insert a record into the "employee" table using ExecuteNonQuery() method of MySqlCommand class and then print the "Record inserted successfully" message on the console screen.
