CLR return type: SqlGeometry

The OGC type of the geometry instance returned by STGeomCollFromText() is set to the corresponding WKT input.

This method will throw an exception if the input is not valid.

The following example uses STGeomCollFromText() to create a geometry instance.

DECLARE @g geometry;
SET @g = geometry::STGeomCollFromText('GEOMETRYCOLLECTION ( POLYGON((5 5, 10 5, 10 10, 5 5)), POINT(10 10) )', 0);
SELECT @g.ToString();
