DbConnectionStringBuilder.Remove Method

Removes the entry with the specified key from the DbConnectionStringBuilder instance.

Namespace: System.Data.Common
Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)

'Declaration
Public Overridable Function Remove ( _
	keyword As String _
) As Boolean
'Usage
Dim instance As DbConnectionStringBuilder
Dim keyword As String
Dim returnValue As Boolean

returnValue = instance.Remove(keyword)
public boolean Remove (
	String keyword
)
public function Remove (
	keyword : String
) : boolean
Not applicable.

Parameters

keyword

The key of the key/value pair to be removed from the connection string in this DbConnectionStringBuilder.

Return Value

true if the key existed within the connection string and was removed; false if the key did not exist.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

keyword is null (Nothing in Visual Basic)

NotSupportedException

The DbConnectionStringBuilder is read-only, or the DbConnectionStringBuilder has a fixed size.

Because the Remove method returns a value that indicates its success, it is not required to look for the key before trying to remove the key/value pair from the DbConnectionStringBuilder instance.

Sub Main()
    Dim builder As New DbConnectionStringBuilder
    builder.ConnectionString = _
        "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Demo.mdb;" & _
        "Jet OLEDB:System Database=system.mdw;"

    ' Try to remove an existing item.
    TryRemove(builder, "Provider")

    ' Try to remove a nonexistent item.
    TryRemove(builder, "User ID")

    ' Try to remove an existing item, 
    ' demonstrating that the search isn't 
    ' case sensitive.
    TryRemove(builder, "DATA SOURCE")
    Console.ReadLine()
End Sub

Sub TryRemove(ByVal builder As DbConnectionStringBuilder, _
    ByVal itemToRemove As String)

    If builder.Remove(itemToRemove) Then
        Console.WriteLine("Removed '{0}'", itemToRemove)
    Else
        Console.WriteLine("Unable to remove '{0}'", itemToRemove)
    End If
    Console.WriteLine(builder.ConnectionString)
End Sub
