OdbcConnection.DataSource Property

Gets the server name or file name of the data source.

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

'Declaration
<BrowsableAttribute(False)> _
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property DataSource As String

Property Value

Type: System.String
The server name or file name of the data source. The default value is an empty string ("") until the connection is opened.

Retrieving the DataSource property is equivalent to calling the ODBC function SQLGetInfo with the InfoType parameter set to SQL_SERVER_NAME.

The following example creates an OdbcConnection and displays the backend data source name.

Public Sub CreateOdbcConnection(connectionString As String)
       Using connection As New OdbcConnection(connectionString)
           With connection
               .Open()
               Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: " & .ServerVersion _
                  & vbCrLf + "Database: " & .Database)
           End With 
       End Using  
End Sub
