Represents additional connection properties that can be implemented by Reporting Services data processing extensions.
For a list of all members of this type, see IDbConnectionExtension Members.
The IDbConnectionExtension interface enables you to implement an extension of the IDbConnection interface, which adds additional functionality for authenticating a connection to a data source. The IDbConnectionExtension interface can be used to build a custom data processing extension. For more information about Connection classes, see Implementing a Connection Class for a Data Processing Extension.
An application does not create an instance of the IDbConnectionExtension interface directly, but creates an instance of a class that implements IDbConnectionExtension.
Classes that implement IDbConnectionExtension must also implement all required members, and typically define additional members to add provider-specific functionality. Because IDbConnectionExtension inherits from IDbConnection, you must also implement all of the IDbConnection members as part of your Connection class including those members from IExtension.
