Property Value

Type: System.String
The name of the current database or the name of the database to be used after a connection is opened. The default value is an empty string.

Implements

IDbConnection.Database

The Database property updates dynamically. If you change the current database using a SQL statement or the ChangeDatabase method, an informational message is sent and the property is updated automatically.

NoteNote:

Unlike the Connection object in the other .NET Framework data providers (SQL Server, OLE DB, and ODBC), OracleConnection does not support a ConnectionTimeout property. Setting a connection time-out either with a property or in the connection string has no effect, and the value returned is always zero. OracleConnection also does not support a Database property or a ChangeDatabase method.
