Property Value

An Array of type Byte that contains the OracleBFile data.


The Value property reads the entire BFILE at one time.

Note   A benefit of using BFILEs is the capability to retrieve large amounts of data in chunks at the client. However, when you use Value, you obtain all the data for the BFILE column as one contiguous chunk, which can significantly increase application overhead.
