Initializes a new instance of the OleDbParameter class that uses the parameter name, data type, length, source column name, parameter direction, numeric precision, and other properties.

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

public OleDbParameter (
	string parameterName,
	OleDbType dbType,
	int size,
	ParameterDirection direction,
	bool isNullable,
	byte precision,
	byte scale,
	string srcColumn,
	DataRowVersion srcVersion,
	Object value
)
public OleDbParameter (
	String parameterName, 
	OleDbType dbType, 
	int size, 
	ParameterDirection direction, 
	boolean isNullable, 
	byte precision, 
	byte scale, 
	String srcColumn, 
	DataRowVersion srcVersion, 
	Object value
)
public function OleDbParameter (
	parameterName : String, 
	dbType : OleDbType, 
	size : int, 
	direction : ParameterDirection, 
	isNullable : boolean, 
	precision : byte, 
	scale : byte, 
	srcColumn : String, 
	srcVersion : DataRowVersion, 
	value : Object
)

Parameters

parameterName

The name of the parameter.

dbType

One of the OleDbType values.

size

The length of the parameter.

direction

One of the ParameterDirection values.

isNullable

true if the value of the field can be null; otherwise false.

precision

The total number of digits to the left and right of the decimal point to which Value is resolved.

scale

The total number of decimal places to which Value is resolved.

srcColumn

The name of the source column.

srcVersion

One of the DataRowVersion values.

value

An Object that is the value of the OleDbParameter.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

The value supplied in the dataType parameter is an invalid back-end data type.

The Size and Precision are inferred from the value of the dataType parameter if they are not explicitly set in the size and precision parameters.

The following example creates an OleDbParameter and displays the ParameterName.

public void CreateOleDbParameter()
{
    OleDbParameter parameter = new OleDbParameter(
        "Description", OleDbType.VarChar, 11, 
        ParameterDirection.Output, true, 0, 0, "Description",
        DataRowVersion.Current, "garden hose");
    Console.WriteLine(parameter.ToString());
