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 Overrides ReadOnly Property Values As ICollection

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.ICollection

An ICollection that contains the values in the SqlConnectionStringBuilder.

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.

Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Module Module1
    Sub Main()
        Dim builder As _
         New SqlConnectionStringBuilder(GetConnectionString())

        ' Loop through each of the values, displaying the contents.
        For Each value As Object In builder.Values

        Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.")
    End Sub

    Private Function GetConnectionString() As String
        ' 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"
    End Function
End Module
