Gets or sets an SQL statement or stored procedure used to select records in the database.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shadows Property SelectCommand As OracleCommand
public new OracleCommand SelectCommand {get; set;}
public: __property OracleCommand* get_SelectCommand();
public: __property void set_SelectCommand(OracleCommand*);
public hide function get SelectCommand() : OracleCommand;
public function set SelectCommand(OracleCommand);

Property Value

An OracleCommand that is used during a fill operation to select records from database for placement in the DataSet.


When SelectCommand is assigned to a previously created OracleCommand, the OracleCommand is not cloned. Instead, the SelectCommand maintains a reference to the previously created OracleCommand object.

If SelectCommand does not return any rows, no tables are added to the DataSet, and no exception is raised.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates an OracleDataAdapter and sets the SelectCommand and InsertCommand properties. It assumes you have already created an OracleConnection object.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Shared Function CreateCustomerAdapter(conn As OracleConnection) As OracleDataAdapter 
  Dim da As OracleDataAdapter = New OracleDataAdapter()
  Dim cmd As OracleCommand

  ' Create the SelectCommand.

  cmd = New OracleCommand("SELECT * FROM Dept " & _
                       "WHERE DName = :pDName AND Loc = :pLoc", conn)

  cmd.Parameters.Add("pDName", OracleType.NVarChar, 14)
  cmd.Parameters.Add("pLoc", OracleType.NVarChar, 13)

  da.SelectCommand = cmd

  ' Create the InsertCommand.

  cmd = New OracleCommand("INSERT INTO Dept (DeptNo, DName) " & _
                       "VALUES (pDeptNo, pDName)", conn)

  cmd.Parameters.Add("pDeptNo", OracleType.Number, 2, "DeptNo")
  cmd.Parameters.Add("pDName", OracleType.NVarChar, 14, "DName")

  da.InsertCommand = cmd

  Return da
End Function

public static OracleDataAdapter CreateCustomerAdapter(OracleConnection conn)
  OracleDataAdapter da = new OracleDataAdapter();
  OracleCommand cmd;

  // Create the SelectCommand.

  cmd = new OracleCommand("SELECT * FROM Dept " +
                       "WHERE DName = :pDName AND Loc = :pLoc", conn);

  cmd.Parameters.Add("pDName", OracleType.NVarChar, 14);
  cmd.Parameters.Add("pLoc", OracleType.NVarChar, 13);

  da.SelectCommand = cmd;

  // Create the InsertCommand.

  cmd = new OracleCommand("INSERT INTO Dept (DeptNo, DName) " +
                       "VALUES (:pDeptNo, :pDName)", conn);

  cmd.Parameters.Add("pDeptNo", OracleType.Number, 2, "DeptNo");
  cmd.Parameters.Add("pDName", OracleType.NVarChar, 14, "DName");

  da.InsertCommand = cmd;

  return da;

static OracleDataAdapter* CreateCustomerAdapter(OracleConnection* conn)
  OracleDataAdapter* da = new OracleDataAdapter();
  OracleCommand* cmd;

  // Create the SelectCommand.

  cmd = new OracleCommand(S"SELECT * FROM Dept " 
                          S"WHERE DName = :pDName AND Loc = :pLoc", conn);

  cmd->Parameters->Add(S"pDName", OracleType::NVarChar, 14);
  cmd->Parameters->Add(S"pLoc", OracleType::NVarChar, 13);

  da->SelectCommand = cmd;

  // Create the InsertCommand.

  cmd = new OracleCommand(S"INSERT INTO Dept (DeptNo, DName) " 
                          S"VALUES (:pDeptNo, :pDName)", conn);

  cmd->Parameters->Add(S"pDeptNo", OracleType::Number, 2, S"DeptNo");
  cmd->Parameters->Add(S"pDName", OracleType::NVarChar, 14, S"DName");

  da->InsertCommand = cmd;

  return da;
