I dropped in a table in Index.cshtml. ( MVC 3 razor view).

Now I want to add the following code to retrieve the data from the database and fill the table.

Where do I put this code?.

Do I put it in index.cshtml or homeController.cs or where else?
string s=ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["constr"].ConnectionString;   
string sel = "select * from TableName";   
SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(s);   
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(sel, con);   
SqlDataAdapter sda = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);   
DataSet ds = new DataSet();   
GridView1.DataSource = ds;

Since the logic is fetch data, it has to go with the Model part of MVC pattern. For further read Understanding Models, Views, and Controllers (C#)[^]

The MVC pattern is about separating components so no you would not add your data access to the view.

Perhaps this will help ASP.NET MVC 3 Models and Data Access[^]
