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 Sub New (
	name As String,
	value As Object


Type: System.String

The name of the parameter to map.

Type: System.Object

The value of the new OleDbParameter object.

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 Shared Sub CreateOleDbParameter() 
   Dim myParameter As OleDbParameter = New OleDbParameter("Description", "Beverages")
End Sub
