DbProviderSpecificTypePropertyAttribute Class

Identifies which provider-specific property in the strongly typed parameter classes is to be used when setting a provider-specific type.

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

[SerializableAttribute]
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Property, AllowMultiple = false, 
	Inherited = true)]
public sealed class DbProviderSpecificTypePropertyAttribute : Attribute

The DbProviderSpecificTypePropertyAttribute is used by a provider writer to designate a provider-specific type parameter property which is not inherited from the DbParameter base class. The SqlDbType property of a SqlParameter is an example of a provider-specific type property not found in DbParameter.

A provider writer can apply DbProviderSpecificTypePropertyAttribute(true) to indicate a provider-specific data type parameter property. This allows for its discovery using reflection, which enables code generation tools, such as those used in Visual Studio, to generate code geared to a specific provider. The IsProviderSpecificTypeProperty property returns true if the property has been set, otherwise false.
