Clear Method

OracleConnectionStringBuilder.Clear Method ()


Clears the contents of the OracleConnectionStringBuilder instance.

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

public override void Clear()

The Clear method removes all key/value pairs from the OracleConnectionStringBuilder, and resets all corresponding properties. This includes resetting the connection string to an empty string.

The following example demonstrates the effect of calling the Clear method. This example populates the OracleConnectionStringBuilder with some key/value pairs, and then calls the Clear method and shows the results.

// You may need to set a reference to the System.Data.OracleClient
// assembly before running this example.
using System.Data.OracleClient;

class Program
    static void Main()
        OracleConnectionStringBuilder builder =
            new OracleConnectionStringBuilder();
        builder.DataSource = "OracleSample";
        builder.IntegratedSecurity = true;
        Console.WriteLine("Initial connection string: " +

        Console.WriteLine("Before call to Clear, count = " + builder.Count);
        Console.WriteLine("After call to Clear, count = " + builder.Count);
        Console.WriteLine("Cleared connection string: " +

        Console.WriteLine("Press Enter to continue.");
