C# and MySQL
trying to create a desktop connection to a MySQL database

 9:33 am on Feb 16, 2010 (gmt 0)

Hi All,

Appologies if this isn't the right place to post.
I am trying to create a desktop connection to a client MySQL database.

This is becuase i want to be able to offer a product that can connect to a MySQL database change edit and delete, as they would normally do from the control panel i built online.

It would work the same as the online control panel but on their desktop.

Now how would i go about creating and packaging this up so that the end client can just install log in and go?

I want to use C# or C++ whatever is better, just need some pointers really.

Many Thanks

I'd recommend checking out the MySQL connectors [dev.mysql.com]. Those should get you started in the right direction.

Depending on what you use to develop your application there may be ad ons to make it easier to implement MySql connections. Visual Studio for example has plug-ins for MySql support.

There are several opensource and freeware apps that do what you are trying to do. Is there a reason you are rolling your own?
