OleDbConnection.Database Property

Gets the name of the current database or the database to be used after a connection is opened.

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

public override string Database { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of the current database or the name of the database to be used after a connection is opened. The default value is an empty string.

Implements

IDbConnection.Database

The Database property updates dynamically. If you change the current database using a SQL statement or the ChangeDatabase method, an informational message is sent and the property is updated automatically.

The following example creates an OleDbConnection and displays some of its read-only properties.

static void OpenConnection(string connectionString)
{
   using (OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(connectionString))
   {
      try
      {
         connection.Open();
         Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: {0} \nDatabase: {1}",
             connection.ServerVersion, connection.Database);
      }
      catch (Exception ex)
      {
         Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
      }
      // The connection is automatically closed when the 
      // code exits the using block.
   }
}
