OracleParameterCollection.Add Method (String, Object)


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Adds an OracleParameter to the OracleParameterCollection given the parameter name and value.

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

[<ObsoleteAttribute("Add(String parameterName, Object value) has been deprecated.  Use AddWithValue(String parameterName, Object value).",
member Add : 
        parameterName:string *
        value:Object -> OracleParameter


Type: System.String

The name of the parameter.

Type: System.Object

The Value of the OracleParameter to add to the collection.

Return Value

Type: System.Data.OracleClient.OracleParameter

A reference to the new OracleParameter object.

Exception Condition

The value parameter is not an OracleParameter.

Use caution when using this overload of the Add method 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.

parameters.Add("pname", Convert.ToInt32(0));

If you do not perform this conversion, the compiler will assume you are attempting to call the OracleParameterCollection.Add (string, OracleType) overload.
