SqlCommand::ExecuteReader Method (CommandBehavior)

Sends the CommandText to the Connection, and builds a SqlDataReader using one of the CommandBehavior values.

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

public:
SqlDataReader^ ExecuteReader(
	CommandBehavior behavior
)

Parameters

behavior
Type: System.Data::CommandBehavior
One of the CommandBehavior values.

When the CommandType property is set to StoredProcedure, the CommandText property should be set to the name of the stored procedure. The command executes this stored procedure when you call ExecuteReader.

NoteNote

Use SequentialAccess to retrieve large values and binary data. Otherwise, an OutOfMemoryException might occur and the connection will be closed.

When you use versions of SQL Server earlier than SQL Server 2005, while the SqlDataReader is being used, the associated SqlConnection is busy serving the SqlDataReader. While in this state, no other operations can be performed on the SqlConnection other than closing it. This is the case until you call the SqlDataReader::Close method. If the SqlDataReader is created with CommandBehavior set to CloseConnection, closing the SqlDataReader closes the connection automatically. Starting with SQL Server 2005, the multiple active result set (MARS) feature allows for multiple actions using the same connection.

If you use ExecuteReader or BeginExecuteReader to access XML data, SQL Server will return any XML results greater than 2,033 characters in length in multiple rows of 2,033 characters each. To avoid this behavior, use ExecuteXmlReader or BeginExecuteXmlReader to read FOR XML queries. For more information, see article Q310378, "PRB: XML Data Is Truncated When You Use SqlDataReader," in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com.

The following example creates a SqlCommand, and then executes it by passing a string that is a Transact-SQL SELECT statement, and a string to use to connect to the data source. CommandBehavior is set to CloseConnection.
