Here Micheal provided a short tutorial with example, how to use LINQ to SQL classes in ASP.Net C#.
What is LINQ ?
  1. Language Integrated Query or LINQ is the collection of standard query operators which provides query facilities into.NET framework language like C#, VB.NET.
  2. LINQ is required as it bridges the gap between the world of data and world of objects.
Image given below shows structure of LINQ Query:
Steps to Create .dbml (LINQ to SQL Classes)
Step 1: Open Visual Studio and Create ASP.Net Web Application.
Step 2: Right click the solution and Select Add New Item.. select Linq to sql classes option from the list
Step 3: The image given belows shows to Select Linq to sql classes in Add New Item Popup Window

Step 4: After adding .dbml file, your solution explorer will look like this,
Step 5: Double click the DataContext.dbml to add Database tables.
Step 6: Open Server Explorer and Click "Connect to Database", as shown in below image
Step 7: After entering all the details, Click Ok
Step 8: Drag and Drop the tables from the Database, After placing tables your DataContext.dbml file will look like this.
Step 9: Right click the DataContext.dbml file and click properties. Change the Name as "DataContext" and remove the Connection string. Image given below shows that,
Step 10: Just save the file and close.
Step 11: Open ASP.Net page write the following code.
Below code shows, Binding gridview using LINQ Query.

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <h2><b><div>The Developer Tips</div></b></h2>
    <h3><b>Gridview with LINQ</b></h3>

    <asp:GridView ID="gridviewEmp" runat="server">


    public partial class Default : System.Web.UI.Page
        protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

        private void BindGridView()
            using (DataContext objDataContext = new DataContext())
                var result = from c in objDataContext.Employees
                             where c.EmployeeAge >= 20
                             select c;                

                List<Employee> lstEmployee = result.ToList();
                gridviewEmp.DataSource = lstEmployee;

I hope this page will helps to create LINQ to SQL Classes in ASP.Net application. Thanks.
