We are planning to convert our very old vb6 application to a .net application.
So i'm busy shopping for the quickest route in doing this and you are defiantly one of the candidate to choice from with the process. anyway.
All out clients use MYSQL as a database engine.
So I busy working though your examples and I like the code first approced
The first example you give your using MSSQLEXPRESS, but I want to pass my own connect string, but it seems to default to MSQLEXPRESS database. Here is my connect string.
<!-- Remember to add your connection string(s) here -->
connectionString="data source=.;server=127.0.0.1;User Id=root;password=letmein;database=medxpress;Persist Security Info=True"
What am i doing wrong, it's suppose to default to this connect string regardless. Please Help.
Ok, 2 more things, I'm based in South Africa, how do I go about in buying you software.
