Smart Planet Starts with YOU!!!

Smart Planet is IBM’s 10 year commitment in making this blue planet we call home into a smarter more intelligent world. A world that can think by itself a world that react by itself to make our lives easier and work to a greener future. Everyone thinks of smart in different ways and see different things in their daily lives that they think can be more intelligent more agile or flexible. I want to start a series of discussions on what you think of smart and ideas on smart planet. How can we do the following:

1. Instrument the worlds systems

2. Interconnect them

3. Make them intelligent

Connect to Datasource in VB.Net

Private Sub btnConnect_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnConnect.Click
Try
ConnectionString = “Data Source= ” + txtdatasource.Text + “;Initial Catalog=” + txtinitialcat.Text + “;Integrated Security=SSPI;User ID=sa;Password=test;Connection Timeout=60”
MessageBox.Show(ConnectionString)
Catch ex As Exception
MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
End Try
End Sub
