A C# .Net Dialog For Connecting to SQL Server

Posted by robkraft on May 7, 2020

I created a Windows C# .Net Form and made it an example for anyone that wants to create a prompt for logging into SQL Server that looks at behaves like SQL Server Management Studio and other Microsoft products.

The code can be found here: https://github.com/RobKraft/SQLServerLoginTemplate

The code does not “share” the saved credentials with the Microsoft products. It stores those credentials in User Specific Settings for the specific application. Passwords are encrypted using the Windows Machine key (DPAPI), therefore this code will not work if used on Linux.
