OracleLob::Value Property

Gets the common language runtime stream value equivalent of the underlying value.

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

public:
property Object^ Value {
	Object^ get ();
}

Property Value

Type: System::Object
For Blob, an array of type Byte[]. For Clob and NClob, a String. For null data, DBNull.

ExceptionCondition
ObjectDisposedException

The object was closed or disposed.

OracleException

An Oracle error has occurred.

For Blob data types, Value returns the entire underlying data as a contiguous array of type Byte[]. For Clob and NClob data types, Value returns all the data as a String data type. For null data, Value returns DBNull. By comparing the returned values, you can distinguish among empty data, null data, and data.

NoteNote

A benefit of using LOB data types is the capability to retrieve large amounts of data in chunks at the client. However, when you use Value, you obtain all the data for the LOB column as one contiguous chunk, which can significantly increase application overhead.
