SqlConnection.Database Property

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

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

public override string Database { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_Database ()

public override function get Database () : String

Not applicable.

Property Value

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.

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

The following example creates a SqlConnection and displays some of its read-only properties.

private static void ChangeSqlDatabase(string connectionString)
{
    // Assumes connectionString represents a valid connection string
    // to the AdventureWorks sample database.
    using (SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
    {
        connection.Open();
        Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: {0}", connection.ServerVersion);
        Console.WriteLine("Database: {0}", connection.Database);

        connection.ChangeDatabase("Northwind");
        Console.WriteLine("Database: {0}", connection.Database);
    }
}
