Close Method

OdbcDataReader.Close Method

Closes the OdbcDataReader object.

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

public:
virtual void Close () override
public void Close ()
public override function Close ()
Not applicable.

You must explicitly call the Close method when you are finished using the OdbcDataReader to use the associated OdbcConnection for any other purpose.

Caution noteCaution:

Do not call Close or Dispose on a Connection, a DataReader, or any other managed object in the Finalize method of your class. In a finalizer, you should only release unmanaged resources that your class owns directly. If your class does not own any unmanaged resources, do not include a Finalize method in your class definition. For more information, see Garbage Collection.

The following example creates an OdbcConnection, an OdbcCommand, and an OdbcDataReader. The example reads through the data, writing it out to the console. Finally, the example closes the OdbcDataReader, and then the OdbcConnection.
