public: __property virtual void set_ParameterName(String*);
public function get ParameterName() : String;

Property Value

The name of the OleDbParameter. The default is an empty string.




The OLE DB .NET Provider uses positional parameters that are marked with a question mark (?) instead of named parameters.


[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example creates an OleDbParameter and sets some of its properties.

[Visual Basic] 
Public Sub CreateOleDbParameter()
    Dim myParameter As New OleDbParameter("Description", OleDbType.VarChar, 88)
    myParameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output
End Sub 'CreateOleDbParameter

public void CreateOleDbParameter() 
    OleDbParameter myParameter = new OleDbParameter("Description", OleDbType.VarChar, 88);
    myParameter.Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;

void CreateOleDbParameter() 
    OleDbParameter* myParameter = new OleDbParameter(S"Description", OleDbType::VarChar, 88);
    myParameter->Direction = ParameterDirection::Output;
