Default Bind Data to a Single Label Control: Possible?

Hi Folks:

How do you bind data to a single label control?

Code:

<script runat="server">
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, _
            ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            Dim MyConnection As SqlConnection
            Dim MyCommand As SqlCommand
            Dim MyReader As SqlDataReader

            MyConnection = New SqlConnection()
            MyConnection.ConnectionString = _
       ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("DSN_Northw ind").ConnectionString

            MyCommand = New SqlCommand()
            MyCommand.CommandText = "SELECT ID, CustomerName FROM CUSTOMERS"
            MyCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text
            MyCommand.Connection = MyConnection

            MyCommand.Connection.Open()
            MyReader = MyCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConne ction)

           ?????????????????????? WHAT GOES HERE ?????????????????????

            MyCommand.Dispose()
            MyConnection.Dispose()
        End If
    End Sub
</script>

Then, in the page:

<asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text="Label"><%# CustomerName %></asp:Label>

Is this possible in ASP.NET? I don't want to use gridview, detailsview, formview, repeater, etc... I just want to quickly bind a headline or single database field to a label or literal control.

Chris

Default

If you are using ASP.2.0 you cannot bind a label. You will have to text in code. Find the data in the reader and assign it to the label.text.
