Data Connection Dialog

The data connection dialog is a database tool component released with Visual Studio. It allows users to build connection strings and to connect to specific data sources.

In order to use the data connection dialog independently of Visual Studio, we have released the standalone source code. You can integrate and redistribute the source code with your application according to license. This document describes how to modify the source code and also how to write a custom data provider.

Thank you for making this source code public!
I needed to remove some Oracle stuff to be able to use it with .Net 4.0 Client Profile.

Some features of Visual Studio can be very usefull to we developers. This Data Connection is just one of them...
ExceptionMessageBox and WizardFramework are another examples.

If you, Microsoft, do the same with ExceptionMessageBox and WizardFramework it will be very usefull...
