Close Method

OleDbDataReader.Close Method

Closes the OleDbDataReader object.

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

public override void Close()

Implements

IDataReader.Close()

You must explicitly call the Close method when you are through using the OleDbDataReader to use the associated OleDbConnection 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 OleDbConnection, an OleDbCommand, and an OleDbDataReader. The example reads through the data, writing it out to the console. Finally, the example closes the OleDbDataReader, and then the OleDbConnection.

private static void ReadData(string connectionString)
{
    string queryString = "SELECT OrderID, CustomerID FROM Orders";
    using (OracleConnection connection = new OracleConnection(connectionString))
    {
        OracleCommand command = new OracleCommand(queryString, connection);
        connection.Open();
        OracleDataReader reader;
        reader = command.ExecuteReader();

        // Always call Read before accessing data. 
        while (reader.Read())
        {
            Console.WriteLine(reader.GetInt32(0) + ", " + reader.GetString(1));
        }

        // Always call Close when done reading.
        reader.Close();
    }
}
