OracleBoolean Structure

Note: This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 1.1 of the .NET Framework.

Represents the value returned from a database comparison operation between Oracle data types, and exposes methods used to perform data type conversions.

For a list of all members of this type, see OracleBoolean Members.


[Visual Basic]
Public Structure OracleBoolean
   Implements IComparable
public struct OracleBoolean : IComparable
public __value struct OracleBoolean : public IComparable

[JScript] In JScript, you can use the structures in the .NET Framework, but you cannot define your own.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.


The key difference between an OracleBoolean structure and a standard Boolean value is that a standard Boolean has two possible values, true and false, and an OracleBoolean structure has these possible values: True, False, Null, One, and Zero.

An OracleBoolean structure does not map to an Oracle Boolean data type; it is exposed as a convenience support class.
