OdbcError Class

Collects information relevant to a warning or error returned by the data source.

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

public sealed class OdbcError

This class is created by the OdbcDataAdapter whenever an error occurs. Each instance of OdbcError created by the OdbcDataAdapter is then managed by the OdbcErrorCollection class, which in turn is created by the OdbcException class.

If the severity of the error is too great, the server may close the OdbcConnection. However, the user can reopen the connection and continue.

The following example displays the properties of the OdbcError class.

		public void DisplayOdbcErrorCollection(OdbcException exception)
			for (int i = 0; i < exception.Errors.Count; i++)
				Console.WriteLine("Index #" + i + "\n" +
					"Message: " + exception.Errors[i].Message + "\n" +
					"Native: " + exception.Errors[i].NativeError.ToString() + "\n" +
					"Source: " + exception.Errors[i].Source + "\n" +
					"SQL: " + exception.Errors[i].SQLState + "\n");
