public void Send(
	string message


Type: System.String

The message string to be sent to the client.


The message is greater than 4,000 characters.


The message is null.

The message string is sent as an informational message to the client. Client applications can listen to messages through different mechanisms, depending on the data access application programming interface (API) that they use. For example, if the client is using ADO.NET, the messages transmit through the InfoMessage event.

The following example uses the Send method to send a message string directly to the client.

	public static void StoredProcSendMessage()
		// Send a message string back to the client.
		SqlContext.Pipe.Send("Hello World!");
