public: virtual bool EquivalentTo ( DbConnectionStringBuilder^ connectionStringBuilder )
public function EquivalentTo ( connectionStringBuilder : DbConnectionStringBuilder ) : boolean
The DbConnectionStringBuilder to be compared with this DbConnectionStringBuilder object.
Return Valuetrue if the connection information in both of the DbConnectionStringBuilder objects causes an equivalent connection string; otherwise false.
Comparisons on key names are case insensitive; value comparisons are case sensitive.
The EquivalentTo 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
