OracleConnectionStringBuilder.Clear Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Clears the contents of the OracleConnectionStringBuilder instance.

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

Public Overrides Sub Clear
Dim instance As OracleConnectionStringBuilder

public void Clear ()
public override function 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.
Imports System.Data.OracleClient

Module Module1
  Sub Main()
    Dim builder As New OracleConnectionStringBuilder
    builder.DataSource = "OracleSample"
    builder.IntegratedSecurity = True
    Console.WriteLine("Initial connection string: " & builder.ConnectionString)

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

    Console.WriteLine("Press Enter to continue.")
  End Sub
End Module
