IDbViewManager.CreateView Method

IIS 7.0

Creates a view within the database.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Web.Management.DatabaseManager
Assembly:  Microsoft.Web.Management.DatabaseManager (in Microsoft.Web.Management.DatabaseManager.dll)

void CreateView(
	string connectionString,
	string schema,
	View view


Type: System.String
The connection string for the database.
Type: System.String
The schema name for the view.
Note   If schema is empty, the default schema name will be used.
Type: Microsoft.Web.Management.DatabaseManager.View
The View object for the view to create.

All database providers that implement the IDbViewManager interface must also implement the CreateView method, which the database manager will use to create a view in a database.

Notes for Implementers

If your provider does not support creating views, you can use the following code sample to raise a not-implemented exception:

public void CreateView(string connectionString, string schema, View view)


   throw new NotImplementedException();



See the CREATE VIEW (Transact-SQL) topic for more information about the CREATE VIEW SQL statement.

The following code sample implements the CreateView method to add a view to a database in an OLEDB data source.

        // Remove a view from the database.
        public void DropView(string connectionString, string schema, string viewName)
            // Create a new database connection.
            using (OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(connectionString))
                // Create the SQL for the CREATE VIEW statement.
                string dropView = String.Format("DROP VIEW {0}", EscapeName(viewName));
                // Create an OLEDB command object.
                using (OleDbCommand command = new OleDbCommand(dropView, connection))
                    // Open the database connection.
                    // Execute the SQL statement.
