Adds an entry with the specified key and value into the DbConnectionStringBuilder.
Assembly: System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
The Item property can also be used to add new elements by setting the value of a key that does not exist in the dictionary. For example: myCollection["myNonexistentKey"] = myValue.
Calling the method by passing a null (Nothing in Visual Basic) key throws an ArgumentNullException. However, calling the method by passing a null value removes the key/value pair.
The following example creates a new DbConnectionStringBuilder and adds items. The code also demonstrates overwriting an existing item using the method, and includes a commented block that would throw an ArgumentNullException.
This example includes a password to demonstrate how DbConnectionStringBuilder works with connection strings. In your applications, we recommend that you use Windows Authentication. If you must use a password, do not include a hard-coded password in your application.
