OdbcCommand.Cancel Method

Tries to cancel the execution of an OdbcCommand.

Namespace: System.Data.Odbc
Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)

public override void Cancel ()
public void Cancel ()
public override function Cancel ()
Not applicable.

If there is nothing to cancel, nothing occurs. However, if there is a command in process, and the cancellation try fails, no exception is generated.

To cancel a query on one thread, Cancel must be called from another thread. Because you cannot execute commands asynchronously with OdbcCommand, to cancel a command from another thread, one thread must be running synchronously. This means that the OdbcCommand object must be accessible from both threads.
