Namespace:  System.Data.SqlClient
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public override Object this[
	string name
] { get; }

Type: System.Object

Implements

IDataRecord.Item[String]
IDataRecord.Item[String]

ExceptionCondition
IndexOutOfRangeException

No column with the specified name was found.

A case-sensitive lookup is performed first. If it fails, a second case-insensitive search is made (a case-insensitive comparison is done using the database collation). Unexpected results can occur when comparisons are affected by culture-specific casing rules. For example, in Turkish, the following example yields the wrong results because the file system in Turkish does not use linguistic casing rules for the letter 'i' in "file".

This method is kana-width insensitive.
