mySQL connection string problems using visual studio 2013

I am new to mySQL. I have always used MS SQL in the past. I can't seem to get my conncetion string working. Here is my connection string:

<add name="MRIXXX" connectionString="server=localhost; User ID=xxxh; Password=Xyyyyy99; database=HiXXXXXXXDB" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"/>

And here is my C# code where I try to connect:

string connString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MRIXXX"].ConnectionString;

MySqlConnection connection = new MySqlConnection(connString);
MySqlCommand command = connection.CreateCommand();
MySqlDataReader Reader;
string thisrow = "";
command.CommandText = "select * from Products";
Reader = command.ExecuteReader();
while (Reader.Read())
for (int i = 0; i < Reader.FieldCount; i++)
thisrow += Reader.GetValue(i).ToString() + ",";

lblProductID.Text = thisrow;

I get this error when I run it:

[MySqlException (0x80004005): Authentication to host 'localhost' for user 'xxxh' using method 'mysql_native_password' failed with message: Access denied for user 'xxxh'@'localhost' (using password: YES)]

What am I doing wrong?
