I had created a user interface form which will accept two inputs from Player A and B and when they click on Play button subsequent inputs will be sent to database and result will be shown in form. Below are steps for creating user interactive form

In the Controller Class – ADD Method

public IActionResult DataTBRules()

        return View();

Add view in order to create a display user interface form

Give View name same as Action name

    <input type="text" name="IP" id="IP" />
    <hr />

    <input type="text" name="Name" id="Name" />

Player A input and Player B input will be passed as S1 and S2

public String Login(string PlayerA , string PlayerB)
string s1 = PlayerA;
string s2 = PlayerB;
SqlConnectionStringBuilder csb = new SqlConnectionStringBuilder();
csb.DataSource = “ServerName”;
csb.InitialCatalog = “master”;
csb.IntegratedSecurity = true;
csb.UserID = “UserID”;
csb.Password = “Password”;

        SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection();
        conn.ConnectionString = csb.ToString();
        SqlCommand sqlcmd = conn.CreateCommand();
             sqlcmd = conn.CreateCommand();
            sqlcmd.Connection = conn;
            sqlcmd.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.Text;
            sqlcmd.CommandText = "select InputA,InputB,Winner from TB_Rules where InputA = '" + s1  + "' and  InputB = '" + s2 + "'";

            SqlDataAdapter sdar = new SqlDataAdapter(sqlcmd);

            SqlDataReader sqdaar = sqlcmd.ExecuteReader();
            int numrws = 0;
            bool rcvcnt = sqdaar.HasRows;
            string reswin = null;
            // print the Values of each record
            while (sqdaar.Read())
                numrws = numrws + 1;                
                reswin = sqdaar["Winner"].ToString();
             if (reswin == s1)
                    reswin = "Player A Won";
                else if (reswin == s2)
                    reswin = "Player A Won";
                    reswin = "Round DRAW";
            return " Result " + reswin;

        catch (Exception ex)
            return  "Error connected to  SQl Server Database as " + ex.Message ;
