SqlCeDataReader.Read Method

Advances SqlCeDataReader to the next record.

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

public override bool Read ()
public boolean Read ()
public override function Read () : boolean
Not applicable.

Return Value

true if there are more rows; otherwise, false.

The default position of the SqlCeDataReader is prior to the first record. To begin accessing any data, you must call Read.

While SqlCeDataReader is in use, the associated SqlCeConnection is busy serving it until you call Close.

The following example creates a SqlCeConnection, a SqlCeCommand, and a SqlCeDataReader. The example reads through the data and writes it out to the console. Finally, the example closes the SqlCeDataReader, then the SqlCeConnection.

SqlCeConnection conn = null;
SqlCeCommand cmd = null;
SqlCeDataReader rdr = null;

try
{
    // Open the connection and create a SQL command
    //
    conn = new SqlCeConnection("Data Source = AdventureWorks.sdf");
    conn.Open();

    cmd = new SqlCeCommand("SELECT * FROM DimEmployee", conn);

    rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();

    // Iterate through the results
    //
    while (rdr.Read())
    {
        int employeeID = rdr.GetInt32(0);   // or: rdr["EmployeeKey"];
        string lastName = rdr.GetString(5); // or: rdr["FirstName"];
    }

    // Always dispose data readers and commands as soon as practicable
    //
    rdr.Close();
    cmd.Dispose();
}
finally
{
    // Close the connection when no longer needed
    //
    conn.Close();
}
