Search Data from Multiple Table Columns in mySQL using VB.Net

Search Data from Multiple Table Columns in mySQL using VB.Net.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to search data from multiple table columns in mySQL using VB.Net.

First, let’s create our project in Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and on our blank Form1 designer, let’s drag a button, text box and data grid view. Here’s an example:

Search Data from Multiple Table Columns in mySQL using VB.Net

Next, on your mySQL we will add a new database and table with multiple columns.

[mysql]

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS sample (
ID int(10) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
Firstname VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
Middlename VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
Lastname VARCHAR(50) NOT NULL,
PRIMARY KEY (ID)
) ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;

[/mysql]

Adding table with columns.

[mysql]

INSERT INTO sample(Firstname, Middlename, Lastname)
VALUES
(‘Ian’,’Hero’,’Santos’),
(‘Kane’,’Luke’,’Lavapiez’),
(‘Annika’,’Anne’,’Mald’);

[/mysql]

Adding values to our table.

Next, we are going to add this line of code to our search text box text changed event and form load event.

[vbnet]

Dim conn As MySqlConnection
Dim cmd As MySqlCommand
Dim da As MySqlDataAdapter
Dim dt As DataTable
Dim sql As String

Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Try
conn = New MySqlConnection
conn.ConnectionString = “server=localhost; userid=root; password=; database=sampledatabase;”
conn.Open()
sql = “SELECT * FROM sample;”
cmd = New MySqlCommand(sql, conn)
da = New MySqlDataAdapter
dt = New DataTable
da.SelectCommand = cmd
da.Fill(dt)
DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
Catch ex As MySqlException
MsgBox(ex.Message)
Finally
conn.Close()
da.Dispose()
End Try
End Sub

[/vbnet]

Code for form load event to get all the values from the mySQL database.

[vbnet]

Private Sub TextBox1_TextChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles TextBox1.TextChanged
Try
conn = New MySqlConnection
conn.ConnectionString = “server=localhost; userid=root; password=; database=sampledatabase;”
conn.Open()
sql = “SELECT * FROM sample WHERE CONCAT_WS(Firstname, Middlename, Lastname) LIKE ‘%” & TextBox1.Text & “%'”
cmd = New MySqlCommand(sql, conn)
da = New MySqlDataAdapter
dt = New DataTable
da.SelectCommand = cmd
da.Fill(dt)
DataGridView1.DataSource = dt
Catch ex As MySqlException
MsgBox(ex.Message)
Finally
conn.Close()
da.Dispose()
End Try
End Sub

[/vbnet]

Code for text box text changed event for searching the data based on the input text on the search box.

To test our code, let’s run the program and let’s try to search for the name “Ian”. Here’s my result:

As you can see it searched on our Firstname column. Now, let’s try “Luke”. It is the middle of Kane Luke Lavapiez. So, we are expecting to get the Kane’s full name if we searched for “Luke”. Here’s my result:
