OdbcTransaction Class

Represents an SQL transaction to be made at a data source. This class cannot be inherited.

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

public sealed class OdbcTransaction : DbTransaction

The application creates an OdbcTransaction object by calling BeginTransaction on the OdbcConnection object. All subsequent operations associated with the transaction (for example, committing or aborting the transaction) are performed on the OdbcTransaction object.

The following example creates an OdbcConnection and an OdbcTransaction. It also demonstrates how to use the BeginTransaction, Commit, and Rollback methods.

public static void ExecuteTransaction(string connectionString)
{
    using (OdbcConnection connection =
               new OdbcConnection(connectionString))
    {
        OdbcCommand command = new OdbcCommand();
        OdbcTransaction transaction = null;

        // Set the Connection to the new OdbcConnection.
        command.Connection = connection;

        // Open the connection and execute the transaction. 
        try
        {
            connection.Open();

            // Start a local transaction
            transaction = connection.BeginTransaction();

            // Assign transaction object for a pending local transaction.
            command.Connection = connection;
            command.Transaction = transaction;

            // Execute the commands.
            command.CommandText =
                "Insert into Region (RegionID, RegionDescription) VALUES (100, 'Description')";
            command.ExecuteNonQuery();
            command.CommandText =
                "Insert into Region (RegionID, RegionDescription) VALUES (101, 'Description')";
            command.ExecuteNonQuery();

            // Commit the transaction.
            transaction.Commit();
            Console.WriteLine("Both records are written to database.");
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
            try
            {
                // Attempt to roll back the transaction.
                transaction.Rollback();
            }
            catch
            {
                // Do nothing here; transaction is not active.
            }
        }
        // The connection is automatically closed when the 
        // code exits the using block.
    }
