OracleDataReader.Read Method

Advances the OracleDataReader to the next record.

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

public override bool Read()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if there are more rows; otherwise, false.

Implements

IDataReader.Read()

The default position of the OracleDataReader is prior to the first record. Therefore, you must call Read to begin accessing any data.

More than one OracleDataReader can be open at any given time.

The following example creates an OracleConnection, an OracleCommand, and an OracleDataReader. The example reads through the data, writing it out to the console. Finally, the example closes the OracleDataReader, then the OracleConnection.


private static void ReadData(string connectionString)
{
    string queryString = "SELECT OrderID, CustomerID FROM Orders";
    using (OracleConnection connection = new OracleConnection(connectionString))
    {
        OracleCommand command = new OracleCommand(queryString, connection);
        connection.Open();
        OracleDataReader reader;
        reader = command.ExecuteReader();

        // Always call Read before accessing data.
        while (reader.Read())
        {
            Console.WriteLine(reader.GetInt32(0) + ", " + reader.GetString(1));
        }

        // Always call Close when done reading.
        reader.Close();
    }
}
