Compares the connection information in this DbConnectionStringBuilder object with the connection information in the supplied object.
Assembly: System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
abstract EquivalentTo : connectionStringBuilder:DbConnectionStringBuilder -> bool override EquivalentTo : connectionStringBuilder:DbConnectionStringBuilder -> bool
Comparisons on key names are case insensitive; value comparisons are case sensitive.
The method returns true if the key/value pairs are equal, regardless of their order. The connection behavior of the two connection strings are equivalent, because order is never significant within connection strings. However, different order may affect connection pooling behavior of connections based on these connection strings.
This sample displays the following output:
builder1 = value1=SomeValue;value2=20;value3=30;value4=40 builder2 = value2=20;value3=30;value4=40;value1=SomeValue builder3 = value2=20;value3=30;value4=40;value1=SOMEVALUE builder1.EquivalentTo(builder2) = True builder2.EquivalentTo(builder3) = False
