This property corresponds to the "Initial Catalog" and "database" keys within the connection string.

The following example creates a simple connection string and then uses the SqlConnectionStringBuilder class to add the name of the database to the connection string. The code displays the contents of the InitialCatalog property, just to verify that the class was able to convert from the synonym ("Database") to the appropriate property value.
