I got my answer :

MySqlConnection sqlConnection1 = new MySqlConnection("server=server;uid=username;" + "pwd=password;database=database;");
MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand();
MySqlDataReader reader;

cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM table";
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
cmd.Connection = sqlConnection1;

reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();

 value = reader.GetString(x);
