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

public override DbType DbType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Data.DbType
One of the DbType values. The default is String.

IDataParameter.DbType
IDataParameter.DbType

The property was not set to a valid DbType.

The OdbcType and DbType are linked. Therefore, setting the DbType changes the OdbcType to a supporting OdbcType.

For a list of the supported data types, see the appropriate OdbcType member. For more information, see DataAdapter Parameters (ADO.NET).

NoteNote

Object is not supported by the Microsoft .NET Framework Data Provider for ODBC.

The following example calls a Stored Procedure with three parameters using the ODBC managed provider.


public void CreateMyProc(OdbcConnection connection)
{
    OdbcCommand command = connection.CreateCommand();
    command.CommandText = "{ call MyProc(?,?,?) }";

    OdbcParameter param = new OdbcParameter();
    param.DbType = DbType.Int32;
    param.Value = 1;
    command.Parameters.Add(param);

    param = new OdbcParameter();
    param.DbType = DbType.Decimal;
    param.Value = 1;
    command.Parameters.Add(param);

    param = new OdbcParameter();
    param.DbType = DbType.Decimal;
    param.Value = 1;
    command.Parameters.Add(param);

    command.ExecuteNonQuery();

 }
