I remember I used to use a tool that displayed a form so that any reachable database could be selected, like the initial prompt when you open SSMS. I don't remember if it's a StackOverflow tool, something from Microsoft, or a NuGet thing. Does anyone know what I am referring to?

I mean a tool accessible from the C# level, that is.

    To clarify: this is an add-on to Visual Studio, that lets you add in the selected server to your C# code? – RDFozz Aug 7 '17 at 18:35

You are probably looking for the Microsoft.Data.ConnectionUI library.

It can be installed via nuget if you need it.

Please see SQL Connection Dialog for sample code using it.
