The TryGetValue method lets developers safely retrieve a value from an OracleConnectionStringBuilder without needing to verify that the supplied key name is a valid key name. Because TryGetValue gracefully handles searching for a non-existent key, there is no need to look for the existence of a key before retrieving its value. Calling TryGetValue with a nonexistent key will place the value null (Nothing in Visual Basic) in the value parameter.

The following example demonstrates the behavior of the TryGetValue method.
