Cancel Method Example (VB)


This example uses the Cancel method to cancel a command executing on a Connection object if the connection is busy.


    'To integrate this code
    'replace the data source and initial catalog values
    'in the connection string

Public Sub Main()
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

    Cnxn.Open strCnxn

    ' Define command strings
    strCmdChange = "UPDATE titles SET type = 'self_help' WHERE type = 'psychology'"
    strCmdRestore = "UPDATE titles SET type = 'psychology' " & _
                     "WHERE type = 'self_help'"

    ' Begin a transaction, then execute a command asynchronously
    Cnxn.Execute strCmdChange, , adAsyncExecute
    ' do something else for a little while –
    ' use i = 1 to 32000 to allow completion
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 1 To 1000
        i = i + i
        Debug.Print i
    Next i

    ' If the command has NOT completed, cancel the execute and
    ' roll back the transaction; otherwise, commit the transaction
