DISPLAY CONNECTIONS Command

Visual Studio .NET 2003

Displays information about the named connections in the current database.

DISPLAY CONNECTIONS [TO PRINTER [PROMPT] | TO FILE FileName] [NOCONSOLE]

Parameters

TO PRINTER [PROMPT]
Directs output from DISPLAY 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 DISPLAY 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.
NOCONSOLE
Suppresses output to the main Visual FoxPro window or to the active user-defined window.

Remarks

DISPLAY CONNECTIONS displays the connection names, datasource, and connection string in the current database. Use DBGETPROP( ) to return additional information about connections in the current database.

Example

The following example assumes an ODBC data source called MyFoxSQLNT is available, and the user ID for the data source is "sa." The testdata database is opened, and a connection named Myconn is created. DISPLAY CONNECTIONS is used to display the named connections in the database.

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

CREATE CONNECTION Myconn DATASOURCE "MyFoxSQLNT" USERID "sa"
CLEAR
DISPLAY CONNECTIONS     && Displays named connections in the database
