LIST CONNECTIONS Command

Continuously displays information about the named connections in the current database.


LIST CONNECTIONS [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName [ADDITIVE]]   [NOCONSOLE]

Parameters

TO PRINTER [PROMPT]

Directs output from LIST CONNECTIONS to a printer.

In Visual FoxPro, you can include the optional PROMPT clause to display a Print dialog box before printing starts. Place PROMPT immediately after TO PRINTER.

TO FILE FileName

Directs output from LIST CONNECTIONS to the file specified with FileName. If the file already exists and SET SAFETY is ON, Visual FoxPro displays a prompt asking if you want to overwrite the file.

ADDITIVE

Appends to the end of the named file. If you omit ADDITIVE, then the file is overwritten with the value of the expression.

NOCONSOLE

Suppresses output to the main Visual FoxPro window or to the active user-defined window.

The information displayed includes the names of named connections, datasources, and connection strings in the current database. Use DBGETPROP( ) to return additional information about connections in the current database.

The following example assumes an ODBC data source called MyFoxSQLNT is available. The testdata database is opened, and a connection named Myconn is created. LIST CONNECTIONS is used to list the named connections in the database.

CLOSE DATABASES
OPEN DATABASE (HOME(2) + 'data\testdata')

CREATE CONNECTION Myconn DATASOURCE "MyFoxSQLNT" USERID "<userid>" PASSWORD "<password>"
CLEAR
LIST CONNECTIONS     && Lists named connections in the database
