DBPROP_COL_ISLONG

Property group: Column

Property set: DBPROPSET_COLUMN

Type: VT_BOOL

Typical R/W: R/W

Description: Is Long

Indicates whether a column can contain a long value.

Value

Meaning

VARIANT_TRUE

The column can contain a long value, and pwszTypeName in the DBCOLUMNDESC structure is not required to be specified.

If pwszTypeName is not specified, the provider determines the best underlying type as follows:

  • If wType is a fixed length type, creates a column using the best match provider type for that DBTYPE.

  • If wType is a variable length type, the provider looks at the ulColumnSize, bPrecision, and bScale — as well as DBPROP_COL_FIXEDLENGTH, DBPROP_COL_ISLONG, and any other column properties — to determine the best-fit provider type.

Note Note
Some 2.0 providers may not support leaving pwszTypeName unspecified. Also, to ensure a specific type, the consumer must specify that type explicitly. (This is true for all providers.)

If pwszTypeName is specified, the provider uses wType, ulColumnSize, bPrecision, and bScale — as well as DBPROP_COL_FIXEDLENGTH, DBPROP_COL_ISLONG, and any other column properties — to verify that the selected pwszTypeName matches the specified values.

VARIANT_FALSE

The column cannot contain a long value.
