SqlCeCommandBuilder.GetInsertCommand Method

Gets the automatically generated SqlCeCommand object required to perform inserts on the database when an application calls Update on the SqlCeDataAdapter.

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

public SqlCeCommand GetInsertCommand()

Return Value

Type: System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand
The automatically generated SqlCeCommand object required to perform inserts.

An application can use the GetInsertCommand method for informational or troubleshooting purposes because it returns the SqlCeCommand object to be executed.

You can also use GetInsertCommand as the basis of a modified command. For example, you might call GetInsertCommand and modify one of its properties, and then explicitly set that on the SqlCeDataAdapter.

After the SQL statement is first generated, the application must explicitly call RefreshSchema() if the application changes the statement in any way. Otherwise, the GetInsertCommand still uses information from the previous statement, and that information might not be correct. The SQL statements are first generated when the application calls either Update or GetInsertCommand.

The following example shows calling the GetInsertCommand method of the SqlCeCommandBuilder.

    SqlCeConnection conn = new SqlCeConnection("Data Source = MyDatabase.sdf");

    SqlCeCommand cmd = conn.CreateCommand();
    cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM employees";

    SqlCeDataAdapter adp = new SqlCeDataAdapter(cmd);

    SqlCeCommandBuilder cb = new SqlCeCommandBuilder();
    cb.DataAdapter = adp;


    DataSet ds = new DataSet("test");

    // Modify the contents of the DataSet
    ds.Tables[0].Rows[0]["First Name"] = "Joe";


catch (Exception e1)
