DataContext.CreateDatabase Method ()
.NET Framework (current version)
Creates a database on the server.
System.Data.Linq (in System.Data.Linq.dll)
public void CreateDatabase()
The name of the database is derived by using the following algorithm:
If a database is identified in the connection string, its name is used.
If a DatabaseAttribute attribute is present, its Name property is used as the name of the database.
If there is no database tag in the connection string and a strongly typed DataContext is used, a database that has the same name as the DataContext inheriting class is checked.
If a weakly typed DataContext is used, an exception is thrown.
If the DataContext has been created by using a file name, the database corresponding to that file name is created.
The following code shows how to set up a temporary database and then remove it.
