SqlConnectionStringBuilder.Values Property

Gets an ICollection that contains the values in the SqlConnectionStringBuilder.

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

public override ICollection Values { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.ICollection
An ICollection that contains the values in the SqlConnectionStringBuilder.

Implements

IDictionary.Values

The order of the values in the ICollection is unspecified, but it is the same order as the associated keys in the ICollection returned by the Keys property. Because each instance of the SqlConnectionStringBuilder always contains the same fixed set of keys, the Values property always returns the values corresponding to the fixed set of keys, in the same order as the keys.

The following example first creates a new SqlConnectionStringBuilder, and then iterates through all the values within the object.


using System.Data.SqlClient;

class Program
{
    static void Main()
    {
        SqlConnectionStringBuilder builder = 
            new SqlConnectionStringBuilder(GetConnectionString());

        // Loop through each of the values, displaying the contents.
        foreach (object value in builder.Values)
            Console.WriteLine(value);

        Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.");
        Console.ReadLine();
    }

    private static string GetConnectionString()
    {
        // To avoid storing the connection string in your code,
        // you can retrieve it from a configuration file. 
        return "Data Source=(local);Integrated Security=SSPI;" +
            "Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks; Asynchronous Processing=true";
    }
}
