Try it, you just have to put your connection string, tablename and you don't need databind.

I pesonally wouldn't use a DataReader to bind to a GridView. I would use the reader to populate a DataTable and then bind the GridView to the DataTable Something like this

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Your Connection String Here");
            con.Open();
            SqlCommand cmdQuery = new SqlCommand("Your Query Here", con);
            SqlDataReader drQuery = cmdQuery.ExecuteReader();
            DataSet dsQuery = new DataSet();
            DataTable dtQuery = new DataTable();
            dsQuery.Tables.Add(dtQuery);
            dsQuery.Load(drQuery, LoadOption.PreserveChanges, dsQuery.Tables[0]);
            DataGridView1.DataSource = dsQuery.Tables[0];

Happy Coding.

       {
           InitializeComponent();
 
           SqlCommand k = new SqlCommand()
           {
         Connection = new SqlConnection() { ConnectionString = @"Data source=.\sqldeveloper;Integrated
                                            Security=true;Database=shop" },
 
               CommandText = "select * from customer"
 
           };
 
         k.Connection.Open();
         SqlDataReader g=  k.ExecuteReader();
 
         radGridView1.MasterGridViewTemplate.LoadFrom(g);
       }
