Default Binding SQLDataSource To A Label Control

hi

I have a sqlDatasource using "Select Count(*) as myCount from tableA"

Now, how do i bind the myCount field to a label control text property?

I don't seems to find any databinding properties for a label control.

Try this:
I have a sqlDataSource which returns a single row and a single column (its looking up a user's name based on the authenticated name on for the page)

First, assign the results of the sqlDataSource to a dataview.
Then assign the first item (row) of the dataview to a datarowview.
Then assign the column (UserName in my case) to the text of your label.

Dim dv As DataView = CType(SqlDataSource1.Select(DataSourceSelectArgume nts.Empty), DataView)

Dim dr As DataRowView = dv.Item(0)

lblUserName.Text = dr.Item("UserName")
