  7. GO
  10. GO
  12. CREATE TABLE [dbo].[tblperson](
  13. [PersonID] [INT] IDENTITY(1,1) NOT NULL,
  14. [Fname] [nvarchar](50) NULL,
  15. [Lname] [nvarchar](50) NULL
  16. ) ON [PRIMARY]
  17. GO

Step 2

Add a two Textboxes, two Labels, and a Button inside the Form. Then do the Form just like shown below. figure 1

Step 3

Press F7 to open the code editor. In the code editor, add a namespace to access SQL Server libraries.

Step 4

Create a connection between Visual Basic 2015 and SQL Server database. After that, declare and initialize all the classes and variables that are needed.
  2. Dim con As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Database=dbperson;trusted_connection=true;")
  3. Dim cmd As SqlCommand
  4. Dim sql As String
  5. Dim result As Integer

Step 5

Create a method for saving the data in the database.
  2. Private Sub saveData(sql As String)
  3. Try
  4. con.Open()
  5. cmd = New SqlCommand
  6. With cmd
  7. .Connection = con
  8. .CommandText = sql
  9. Result = .ExecuteNonQuery()
  10. End With
  11. If Result > 0 Then
  12. MsgBox("Data has been saved in the databse")
  13. End If
  15. Catch ex As Exception
  16. MsgBox(ex.Message)
  17. Finally
  18. con.Close()
  19. End Try

  2. Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
  3. sql = "INSERT INTO tblperson (Fname,Lname) VALUES ('" & txtFname.Text & "','" & txtLname.Text & "')"
  4. saveData(sql)
  6. txtFname.Clear()
  7. txtLname.Clear()
