Gets the current state of the connection.
Assembly: System.Data (in System.Data.dll)
[<BrowsableAttribute(false)>] abstract State : ConnectionState with get [<BrowsableAttribute(false)>] override State : ConnectionState with get
Property ValueType: System.Data.ConnectionState
A bitwise combination of the ConnectionState values. The default is Closed.
The following are allowed state changes:
From Closed to Open, using the Open method.
From Open to Closed, using either the Close or Dispose method.
Calling the property on an open connection increases application overhead because each such call causes a SQL_ATTR_CONNECTION_DEAD call to the underlying ODBC driver to determine whether the connection is still valid.
