DbConnectionStringBuilder::EquivalentTo Method (DbConnectionStringBuilder^)

 

Compares the connection information in this DbConnectionStringBuilder object with the connection information in the supplied object.

Namespace:   System.Data.Common
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public:
virtual bool EquivalentTo(
	DbConnectionStringBuilder^ connectionStringBuilder
)

Parameters

connectionStringBuilder
Type: System.Data.Common::DbConnectionStringBuilder^

The DbConnectionStringBuilder to be compared with this DbConnectionStringBuilder object.

Return Value

Type: System::Boolean

true 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
