OleDbParameter.DbType Property

Gets or sets the DbType of the parameter.

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

public override DbType DbType { get; set; 
/** @property */
public DbType get_DbType ()

/** @property */
public void set_DbType (DbType value)

public override function get DbType () : DbType

public override function set DbType (value : DbType)

Property Value

One of the DbType values. The default is String.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

The property was not set to a valid DbType.

The OleDbType and DbType are linked. Therefore, setting the DbType changes the OleDbType to a supporting OleDbType.

For a list of the supported data types, see the appropriate OleDbType member. For more information, see Using Parameters with a DataAdapter.

The following example creates an OleDbParameter and sets some of its properties.

public void CreateOleDbParameter() 
 {
    OleDbParameter parameter = new OleDbParameter("Description", OleDbType.VarChar, 88);
    parameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;
