OleDbParameter Constructor (String, Object)

Initializes a new instance of the OleDbParameter class that uses the parameter name and the value of the new OleDbParameter.

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

public OleDbParameter(
	string name,
	Object value
)

Parameters

name
Type: System.String

The name of the parameter to map.

value
Type: System.Object

The value of the new OleDbParameter object.

When you specify an Object in the value parameter, the DbType is not inferred from the Microsoft .NET Framework type of the Object, VarWChar is used.

Use caution when you are using this overload of the OleDbParameter constructor to specify integer parameter values. Because this overload takes a value of type Object, you must convert the integral value to an Object type when the value is zero, as the following C# example demonstrates.

Parameter = new OleDbParameter("@pname", Convert.ToInt32(0));

If you do not perform this conversion, the compiler assumes that you are trying to call the OleDbParameter constructor overload.

The following example creates an OleDbParameter.

public static void CreateOleDbParameter() 
{
   OleDbParameter myParameter = new OleDbParameter("Description", "Beverages");
}
