Creating a customer application

Create a Windows applicationPage 1 of 4

Using the IBM DB2 Add-ins, create a Windows application to invoke the getRateWS Web service created in the previous section.

To create a data-bound Windows application:

  1. Create a Windows C# application and name it customerApp.
  2. Open Form1.cs in design mode.
  3. Drag and drop a Windows data grid control on the form. Use this to data-bind the customer table.
  4. Drag and drop the customer table from IBM Explorer. This creates db2DataAdapter1.
  5. Click on db2DataAdapter1 and generate DataSet. Name the dataset DB2DataSet_customer.

    Generate data set

  6. Set the DataSource property of the dataGrid1 to DB2DataSet_customer.CUSTOMER. This binds the data grid to the dataset at design time.

    Bind data set to data grid

  7. Add the following code (bold) in the beginning of Form1.cs:
    using IBM.Data.DB2;
  8. Write the following code (bold) in the form load event handlers for the form:
    private void form1_load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
