The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets or sets the OracleType of the parameter.

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

public OracleType OracleType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Data.OracleClient.OracleType

An OracleType value that is the OracleType of the parameter. The default is VarChar.

The OracleType and DbType are linked. Therefore, setting the DbType changes the OracleType to a supporting OracleType.

The DbType, OracleType, and Size properties of a parameter can be inferred by setting Value. Therefore, you are not required to specify them. However, they are not exposed in OracleParameter property settings. For example, if the size of the parameter has been inferred, Size does not contain inferred value after statement execution. For String data types the default is VarChar.

For a list of the supported data types, see the appropriate OracleType member. For more information, see DataAdapter Parameters.
