Property Value

Type: System::String^

The name of the current database. The default value is an empty string ("") until the connection is opened.

At first, the Database property is set in the connection string. The Database property can be updated by using the ChangeDatabase method. If you change the current database using an SQL statement or the ChangeDatabase method, an informational message is sent and then the property is updated.

Retrieving the Database property is equivalent to calling the ODBC function SQLGetInfo with the Attribute parameter set to SQL_ATTR_CURRENT_CATALOG.

The following example creates an OdbcConnection and changes the current database.
