OdbcConnection Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the OdbcConnection class.

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

public OdbcConnection()

When a new instance of OdbcConnection is created, the write-only and read-only properties are set to the following initial values unless they are specifically set using their associated keywords in the ConnectionString property.

Properties

		{
			using (OdbcConnection connection = new OdbcConnection())
			{
				connection.ConnectionString = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=C:\\Samples\\Northwind.mdb";
				connection.Open();
			}
		}
