OdbcCommand.Parameters Property

Gets the OdbcParameterCollection.

Namespace: System.Data.Odbc
Assembly: System.Data (in

public OdbcParameterCollection Parameters { get; 
/** @property */
public OdbcParameterCollection get_Parameters ()

public function get Parameters () : OdbcParameterCollection

Property Value

The parameters of the SQL statement or stored procedure. The default is an empty collection.

When CommandType is set to Text, the .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC does not support passing named parameters to an SQL statement or to a stored procedure called by an OdbcCommand. In either of these cases, use the question mark (?) placeholder. For example:

SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE CustomerID = ?

The order in which OdbcParameter objects are added to the OdbcParameterCollection must directly correspond to the position of the question mark placeholder for the parameter in the command text.


If the parameters in the collection do not match the requirements of the query to be executed, an error may result.
